The Swahili Baptist Church of Woodmont
In early 2012, Memba Mwene and his family came to Nashville and visited Woodmont Baptist Church. Memba said he passed the church on his way to work and felt God was leading him here.
They attended the Fulcher Sunday School class (now the Logos class) after which Nick and Connie Bushey escorted them to the worship service. Afterwards the Busheys introduced them to Carlos and Myrtice Owens, missionaries to Africa for 36 years for the Southern Baptist International Mission Board and members of Woodmont.
The Mwenes and Owenses spoke to each other in Swahili.
The rest is history.
