Moïse Mounkoro was born in Mali to a Protestant family, and currently works in Paris as a TV journalist.
Moïse moved to Paris in 2011 to pursue his studies, and by chance when he found an internship his office was situated just a 5-minute walk from ACP. One Sunday he decided to attend the 1:30 service to see if he would like it, and that day he fell in love with everything: the music, the preaching, and the people he met following the service. He explains, "I discovered a welcoming and an open church. What struck me at ACP when I came were its interdenominational and international dimensions."
He continues, "Today I have the joy of serving on the Young Adults leadership team because I want to help this international church home stand, grow, and become a more radiant family of Christ. Serving at ACP is also a way for me to thank God for the many things He has done in my life."
Moïse's favorite Parisian hobbies are visiting exhibitions and walking along the Seine during summer. He speaks French, English, Bomou and Bambara (two local languages spoken in West Africa), and is a beginner in Arabic and German. His favorite favorite Bible verse is John 11:40.
A fun fact about Moïse? If you want to make him afraid, all you need is a snake -- real or a fake! He admits to having herpetophobia (a fear of snakes).
