Meet the Rev. Ama Zenya
Pastor Ama Zenya is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and then received both a Master of Divinity degree and a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from the Pacific School of Religion in California. She has been trained in Coaching and Church Revitalization by the Church Multiplication Training Center and in Leadership Development by the Gamaliel Foundation.
She grew up primarily in Kenya, East Africa, the daughter of a British-Kenyan father and an Irish-American mother. This background motivates her to nurture relationships of respect and love among people of all traditions and cultures, as well as with the earth itself. Pastor Ama has years of experience working with churches to deepen their fellowship and grow their capacity to serve the wider community. She brings a contagious, creative exuberance to her leadership, working with others to create ministries in which all participate. She lives in Oakland with her husband and two young sons.
Pastor Ama looks forward to joining with us at Woodside Village Church as we celebrate God's Love in worship and music, proclaim the Gospel in word and deed, and reach out to meet the needs of our members, our community and our world. Her life and leadership are rooted in the Spirit and teaching of Jesus Christ, who in John's gospel, says, "...I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."
