Amidu's Testimony

Each month we join Rev Amidu Koroma in prayer for our communities in Sierra Leone. Following his ordination, Amidu took up the role of Minister under the leadership of Magnus Bendu. Read more about his life and career in his testimony below.


I was born and grew up at Mongegba Community, Western Area Rural District of Sierra Leone, on 23 June 1986 with my mother, Marie Kargbo, and Lamina Koroma.

My mother was a Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion Church member from the 1980s, and one of the founding members of my first church in the Mongegba Community.

I was brought up as a Muslim because of my father, but I also attended King James Countess of Huntingdon's Primary School in Mongegba. On one occasion, the Head Teacher, John Brima Koroma, invited our class to attend a church thanksgiving service at the newly constructed King James Countess of Huntingdon's Church in Mongegba. After that service I felt the spirit of God in me, and from then on I made sure to always attend church services.

When I finished my primary school education and moved up to the Huntington Junior and Senior Secondary school, I was an active Christian. There was no problem with my father, thanks to the Grace of God, and I went on to become a Youth President at King James Church.

I received my official baptism and confirmation on 5 November 2005 at Christ Church Hastings, under the superintendency of the late Rev Sylvanus Alaba Nicol.


I had a dream after my baptism. In this dream I was standing in front of a church preaching. I was surprised at the time, but a year later I was encouraged by Rev Daniel Bockril Koromato to teach Sunday School. 

I saw myself as victorious and felt the power of God within me. Service and commitment to the church and my personal conviction had led me to believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Saviour.

Becoming a Pastor

I became a Pastor after my senior school education, under the Leadership of Rev Theophilus Nicol, and I was ordained as a Minister under the leadership of Rev Magnus Bendu, Bishop of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, Sierra Leone.

I feel much gratitude to the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion in the UK. I have successfully completed my course as a Bachelor of Theology and I really appreciate the scholarship that was given to me. I also pass on the appreciation of my wife Deborah and my two children, Daniel and Firstina.

With Thanks

I am what I am by the Grace of God (1 Corinthians 15:10). Thank you, Jesus, for my life as a Pastor. I spent several years at King James Church, Mongegba before transferring to St John's Circuit, Goderich, Western Area Rural District.

I finally want to thank God for his blessings over my life, and the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion in the UK and Sierra Leone.
