Pastor Peter and Joyce Rajoro who will be leading the church planting team to Songea Sept. 16-22, 2019
Pastor Rajoro was born April 10th, 1972 in Rorya district of Mara region, northern part of Tanzania on the eastern shore of Lake Victoria. He grew in a poor and polygamy family of many wives and children. He only went to a primary school before he was baptized in the Mennonite Church December 1983. The Mennonite Church was the only option during his time following its roots in the area since 1934.
Pastor Rajoro is married to Joyce since April 23, 1997. God has blessed them with three boys and a girl. Naomi (1998), Josiah (2002), John (2004) and Edrey (2010).
He went to the Mennonite Theological College of Eastern Africa (MTCEA) for a two years Certificate Course of Theology, 1998-1999. After a few years of ministry work as an evangelist, he was ordained 2002. Since then he served in various congregations in North Mara Diocese before he went to Dar es Salaam, Eastern Diocese 2011. His core call in the ministry is evangelism and church planting.
In the Eastern Diocese Pastor Rajoro has served in three congregation including Tanga which is mainly dominated by Muslims. He is gifted in preaching to the open air meetings and crusades. God has used him tremendously in his ministry.
He is the right fit for Songea, the area dominated by Muslims and traditional beliefs. He will plant a church with a mix of the Mennonite culture of quietness and Pentecostalism. His ability to teach the WORD of God without compromising it will make this church strong and rooted to the truth. Pastor Rajoro is also a prayer warrior and well connected to the Holy Spirit especially in the spiritual warfare. He is a man of God who stand firm in the moment of casting demons.
We are praying for him and his family that God may provide him his Grace and become his provider during his journey to Songea. My Lord go with him and bless his work now and forever more!
