We are thrilled to welcome back Rev. Pausa Kaio Thompson and members of our Samoan community to help lead our service next week. Rev. Thompson is the Senior Pastor of the Dominguez Samoan Church (EFKS) in Compton, California. He is a Samoan American clergy, activist, and theologian. He is an alumnus of the Kanana Fou Theological Seminary in American Samoa, Union Theological Seminary in the city of New York, Boston University School of Theology, and and is currently completing his doctorate degree at Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, CA. His scholarly work accentuates the theological discourse, indigenous culture and wisdom, and social justice issues of Samoa and Samoans in diaspora. His ministry encourages people to be change agents in the world by invoking a more socially conscious ethic of Christian practice. Sadly, we can’t have koko Samoa (same hot chocolate or suafa’i (ripe banana soup) after church this year there but there will be much alofas (love) shared online!
The service starts at 11:00 am EST, 8:00 am PST.
