Salvatore Nkorerimana - Burundi

To represent CMS-Africa in Burundi is to facilitate and coordinate all activities of CMS-Africa in that country. To be an adviser, a person of contact and reporter of the CMS-Africa’s activities in Burundi. My role is to provide coordination between the international office and the communities and churches in Burundi.

For me, being part of CMS-Africa means to serve the Lord through its mission statement: to equip and multiply leaders in the church and society to transform nations. To be part of CMS-Africa also means working together with CMS-Africa in order to renew people’s mindsets through training.

Call

To establish a solid biblical foundation upon which I can build my ministry, and extend the kingdom of God by making a holistic transformation in my community.

Role

As pastor, my daily role is to proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God in my diocese. Also I’m coordinator of health and HIV/AIDS department in Matana diocese and CMS-Africa representative in Burundi.

I grew up in Christian home and tried doing good things without knowing God. I knew about God, but I didn’t truly know him or understand the gospel. God eventually convicted me of my sin of drinking, but I was living a sinful lifestyle, and had no peace until I heard the true gospel and believed in Jesus Christ.

I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour on January 1990. I’ll never forget that night when I got saved. I placed my faith in Jesus alone to receive forgiveness of my sins and to become a part of God’s family. None of that compared to the joy I later found in knowing Christ, being forgiven, and being in a right relationship with God. God’s will and purpose were accomplished in my life through his word. The Bible is true when it says that: “all things work together for good…according to his purpose”.

As a young person, I was privileged to grow up in a group of Christians in secondary school, where I developed a gift of singing and preaching. As a teenager, I knew God’s calling was on my life to be in the full-time ministry as a pastor.

After my theological studies at Matana Theological School, the church placed me on youth ministry; where I worked as coordinator of the youth department in Matana diocese.

After two years, my bishop changed my placement to the TEE programme (Theological Education by Extension) in Matana diocese where I worked as accountant and secretary for seven years. Now I’m a coordinator of the health and HIV/AIDS department in my diocese.

I thank God for helping me in his ministry and giving me a new vision and getting a privilege to work in his ministry.
