sudanese dinka community


The Dinka are a tribe from southern Sudan who came to the United States as refugees during a long civil war. This congregation worships Jesus Christ in their native language of Dinka and serves as a gathering place for Southern Sudanese Dinka in Rochester.

The Sudanese Dinka Community is a partner of Zumbro Lutheran Church and is a worshiping community of the ELCA.

The congregation is led by lay evangelist Kamen Makeur.

Zumbro opened its doors to the Dinka congregation in 2005.

Our journey of faith leads us to build bridges of understanding and peace, to reach out with compassion, and to share the hope of Jesus.
