MOMO B. KINNIE
Rev Momo B. Kinnie was born in a small village (Jenne) in Bomi County in the early 1960s.
He is the fifth in a family of eight children. Though money was scarce his mother was determined to educate him and he attended school. As time and money permitted Momo completed college focusing on biblical studies, theology and human resources. He has continued to educate himself recently finishing a course in Leadership skills and is an apprentice Trauma Healing Facilitator both for adults and children.
During the civil wars Momo continued to live in Liberia. However he witnessed and experienced the high cost of war on himself, his family and his community. He has been dedicated to improving the life of not just his family but his wider community as they come to terms with not only their past losses but the trauma they have all endured which has been magnified through absolute poverty.
He has served as a pastor for the last 25 years and has been regional co-coordinator for his church for the last six years serving other leaders in a pastoral and counseling role.
His work experience has been in education spanning over 15 years serving as a teacher, vice principal and finally principal. Though he has only four children he has had many children whom he has cared for and sent to school. He firmly believes in encouraging young people to reach their fullest potential regardless of their own background or circumstances.
We welcome Momo as President of The Koinonia Trust.
