Patrick Mai, 2024

I am from South Sudan, and through a church sponsorship I was able to come to HCC in 2019. My mentor, the late evangelist Isaac Kpakpo Adotey, told me to study at HCC so that I could get a different lens to clearly see the world around me. However, my father did not support my decision to pursue theology and ministry. He was mad when I told him that I was going because he doubted that it would lead to a secure, good paying job.
Today, I am a proud student in theology, but HCC has also given me lots of business entrepreneurship opportunities. I hold my head up because, besides learning how to be a better minister in the church, I also have learned the skills to start my own business and contribute to my community in South Sudan.
