The Rev. Musa Daba
Musawenkosi Nyanawesizwe Daba (don’t worry, Musa will do just fine) was born in the city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Married to one wife, Levidia and we have a 15 year old Daughter, Jessie.
I have been in the ordained ministry for 15 years. The majority of my ordained life has been served on the Islands of Bermuda where I served in two parishes as well as a Chaplain to the Royal Bermuda Regiment. I love children and believe ministry to children and families to be vital for the vibrancy and future of the church.
I especially enjoy tennis and soccer (football) and sport of all kinds, (ice hockey… not yet sure). As a preacher/teacher of the gospel I find praying and reading to be integral to my calling. So a good book and a quiet space to reflect are important.
Enough about me we’ll get to know each other deeper soon enough.
Now my wife Levidia. She is my gifted and hardworking sweet-heart, with whom I would not have achieved much in my life. She’s my partner and confidant. I can’t believe she’s put up with me for 20 years already. Levidia has many ministry gifts of her own which she will gradually display as the Lord leads. Please don’t be fooled by her vivacious demeanor (can be very talkative), she is somewhat reserved, until she gets to know people better… and then!!! Jokes aside, Levidia is lovable and loving.
Jessie our daughter is somewhat shy in public but can be very outgoing when she’s acclimatized to her surroundings. She loves music and plays the piano and flute. Don’t you rush her to play in the church band yet, I’ll be the one twisting arms. My girl is a real daddy’s sweetie…
And then there’s the dog (or our other baby to my wife), Snap. She is just the sweetest, most lovable and the laziest dog I know. Well that’s us, the Daba’s and Snap the dog. We cannot wait to join the Family at Trinity and making long lasting friendships.
Last evening Trinity Church hosted our 4th Annual St. Nicholas' Eve party. A terrific team effort resulted in an outstanding evening of fun for all. Children learned about Jesus as the heart of Christmas and that Nicholas gives gifts because he wanted to live like Jesus.
October 2 2016 we celebrated our Pastors with a great lunch followed by a few songs and poems. A major portion of the congregation posed for a group shot shown below.
Sept 30 2016 Trinity hosted international students from Lambton College. Over 20 students attended and enjoyed five different lasagnas, salads, ham and a huge table of desserts. Most of the students were from Mexico studying the English language.
Saturday September 10 2016 Trinity held it's annual fall fair. This year there was a record attendance. Guest enjoyed over 550 hotdogs, corn on the cob and drinks. Rachael Phillips won the chili contest with a little curry as the secret ingredient. Mike Casey won the cookie contest.
