Jean Jacques Bukasa* – DRC

Area Director

Jean was raised in a Christian home and engaged in church activities like youth group and singing. However, he did not prioritize Jesus. He learned about the Lordship of Jesus in his second year of theology school, which led him to his comittment to serve Jesus fully. Today Jean is a pastor and a Young Life area director. Jean became involved in Young Life in 2009 when Benga Florent and Alexis Kwamy invited him to go through an intensive leadership training. Since then, he’s led ministry in Lubumbashi, expanding to Likasi and Kolwezi. He oversees several areas, leading almost 400 leaders with more in training.
