Vicar David Mayen is attending Wartburg Seminary through the Distributed Learning Tract while serving as Mission Developer for the South Sudanese Synod Authorized Worshiping Community at Messiah. He leads a Dinka language worship service each Sunday afternoon.
David has been a member of Messiah since 2001, having joined shortly after arriving in America from Kenya as one of the “Lost Boys of Sudan.” David graduated from Ralston High School in 2004 and the University of Nebraska-Omaha, majoring in Business, in 2011.
David and Ayak were married in 2009 and they have two daughters, Apajok, age 4 and Amon, age 2. David’s passion in ministry includes preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ and helping his fellow South Sudanese brothers and sister transition to a new language, culture and home.
