Lead Pastor, Experience Church International
Samuel Mukasa, was born in Entebbe and raised in Sokolo, a small village in the then, Mpigi District in Uganda. Samuel began is his primary schooling at Katende Primary School. Raised in a “born-again” home, Samuel attended church, participated in family Bible study and prayer; but the understanding of God’s Word had yet to be illuminated in his heart. After graduating from high school Samuel’s dream came true when he was accepted to St.Henry’s College Kitovu for his advanced school certificate. Soon he was recruited to play for the Sports Club Villa, the biggest soccer club in Uganda, at the time. After playing soccer for a time, his mentor and friend encouraged him to “get an education”, and connected Samuel with the soccer program at Alabama A&M University in Huntsville, Alabama. Within six years Samuel obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Finance, along with a Master’s of Science degree in Economics with a concentration in Finance. He also holds Bachelor’s of Science degree in Theology from Life Christian University. His unique perspective, partnered with his foundational understanding of God’s Word, makes for thought-provoking commentary. Pastor Samuel's heart is to encourage you in your journey (walk with Christ), that you will pursue God with all your heart and strength and that you will come to understand the fullness of Christ’s love for you!

Consultant at Firm Foundation Grant Writing and Best Practices
Becoming saved at the age of 5, responding to a call of Christian ministry at 11, and committing her life to missions at 16, Pamela recognized the plans that God had for her at an early age. She married young and had three chil-dren. In that time, her husband endured a debilitating illness and two of her children were born with congenital heart issues. Through those experiences she came to know the Lord as the Lover of her soul, her all-sufficient One. She and her young family spent 10 years as missionaries in Guatemala, Mexi-co and Belize. They traveled the Midwest raising support and recruiting short-term missionaries. Through this speaking and music ministry, in the US and abroad, Pamela found the intersection of her passion and God’s purpose as she taught Bible, English, Worship and Performing Arts, directed several choirs and served as a school counselor. Those were incredible years of growth and ministry, but that blissful life was unexpectedly turned upside down when divorce interrupted her family’s missionary experience and changed the course of their family forever. As a single mom, Pamela’s identity became fully rooted in God’s grace as His love sustained her. Then she met Craig. Their love story is all about God’s redemption and restoration of His call on both of their lives. Soon they married and blended their family of 5 children. They both ministered as lay pastors in their home church. In 2015, Craig and Pamela moved to South Florida where they served on the pastoral staff of a church in inner-city Miami.Pamela is the Senior Consultant at Firm Foundation Grant Writing and Best Practices, a consulting ministry for faith-based nonprofits and churches.
