He sat down with Rachel Smart for an interview to find out more about his plans for the future.
Mancoba Shongwe: A True Worshipper
RS: So what does a normal week look like for you?
MS: I usually prepare the song sheets for Sunday’s worship session and assist the admin staff with paperwork and some church maintenance.
RS: What do you enjoy most about your work?
MS: I actually enjoy the paperwork! I like typing and working on stage design, and practicing the drums for the worship service. Sometimes the songs need to be transposed so I enjoy learning how to do that.
RS: That’s great! You seem to be busy doing things you enjoy, what are your future plans after your internship?
MS: I really want to be in full-time ministry. I’ve been playing drums for the worship team since 2010, and I’ve always wanted to be involved in worship, it’s what God has given me as a gift. My role as a musician on the worship team is helping me discover how to make that possible.
RS: That’s great, Mancoba! Thanks for the interview, and all the best in your future!
