“I am training the generation of leaders in a new nation.” The civil wars of Sudan filled Romano’s childhood and young adult years. Twice he made the attempt to flee to Uganda. Once he was captured and sent to prison back in his homeland; and then he succeeded.
While living as a refugee in Uganda, Romano was able to attend Bible School and began to follow his heart to share the good news of the gospel and shepherd those who follow. After graduation and a peace treaty, Romano returned to Torit, Southern Sudan, where he now serves as Senior Pastor of the local African Inland Church. He oversees a local Christian radio station, a primary school with 1000 students and an orphanage. ‘Having gone through the Servant Leadership course I have found relief. I am now able to delegate responsibility and when others succeed, my head is lifted up.” – Romano Oguma, South Sudan
