Introduction: Shtem


(Steven Shitemi) #1

Hello everyone, My name is Shtem and I currently live near Boston and I work as an associate pastor at a church in Cambridge. I was born and grew up in Nairobi, Kenya but recently located to US with my wife and our daughter.
I like to answer questions about my faith and recently did the core module course and here I am eager to learn and grow.

Hi @shtem,

Welcome! I lived in Boston for seven years. During this time I completed the M.Div. degree at Gordon Conwell and ministered at Harvard, as well as to students at other campuses. I am excited about the vibrancy of people’s faith and the encouraging growth of the church in New England. I would be curious to hear more about the church you are serving with and what questions are coming up in your evangelistic conversations. I think you will find that RZIM Connect is a very natural extension of the conversations that the RZIM Academy develops with such excellence.

Dear Carson,

Thank you and it is interesting that you did your Mdiv from Gordon while you were here. Where are you now? I am currently applying to Gordon to pursue an Mdiv. The church I am serving at is Cambridgeport Baptitst Church ( I started in March as the associate pastor part time. I am slowly developing relationships with the students who come to our church that go to Harvard or MIT.

I would like to talk more and gain from your knowledge and wisdom on being here before. May be we can skype or something?
