Brian Mungandi, pastor of Faith Church International and Light of Christ Church has accepted the call from the Minnesota Conference of Seventh-day Adventists to be the Vice-President for Administration starting May 1st. As part of his official duties, he will also be Communications Director and Sabbath School Director. He replaces Justin Lyons, former Vice-President who is now the President of the Minnesota Conference.
Although Brian grew up as a native of Zambia, he is a permanent resident in the United States. He has been married to his wife Evelyn for 24 years. They have three sons; Brian, who is currently attending Union College, Paul and John who are both living at home.
Mungandi has served 26 years in pastoral ministry. His service experience is both from Zambia and the United States. He has served as a district pastor, Field Church Ministries Director, Union Associate Departmental Director, and Union Youth and Stewardship Director. He also helped to start the TV ministry series “Penetration” (now Voice of Prophecy) in Zambia, and in Minnesota, the “Faith Hour.” In the United States he has been a bi-vocational pastor both in the Central States and Minnesota Conferences.
He has had opportunities to represent the Adventist church through several avenues. In Zambia he was asked to serve on the national administrative boards of the Bible Society of Zambia, African Army Chaplain Committee, and the Presidential Prayer Breakfast Committee. He was selected by the government to be a national speaker on Zambian National Youth Day, in 1990.
Mungandi is excited to have the opportunity to serve the Minnesota Conference. He is passionate about reaching people for the Kingdom. One of his guiding biblical texts comes from Matthew 28:20, “…teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (NKJV) Mungandi said, “Now is the time to show everyone around us that Jesus lives in us, and as they see Jesus in us we then have the opportunity to tell them about what a wonderful Savior He is.”
