Conversation with Dr. Paul Msiza, (mmmseeza) (President of the Baptist World Alliance which is composed of churches in 121 countries) — www.bwanet.org — from Pretoria, South Africa; and his host, Pastor/Dr Ron Bobo, 30 year St. Louis Pastor and former director for 5-years of the Baptist World Alliance Youth Division.
Dr. Paul tells his story of his parents’ divorce, difficulties with his father who owned a “soccer” team in South Africa. Toward the end of his time in high school, he heard the Gospel and by faith received Jesus Christ into his life.
And, at my request, he points to the remarkable prejudice toward blacks who were the majority people in South Africa. They, at the time, could not own property and had to have on them at all times the equivalent of a “passport” to move about in their own cities.

Msiza emphasized that, for the church, "the door is Christ.” It is the one door, the only door, “single entry,” open to “all human beings, made in the image of God,” a demonstration that “We all belong together.”
Msiza was trained at the Hebron Teacher Training College and worked bi-vocationally as a pastor and school teacher from 1988 until he became founding principal of the Baptist Convention College in 1995, from where he left to become BCSA general secretary.
He holds diplomas and degrees from the University of Witwatersrand, the University of South Africa, the Baptist Theological Seminary of Southern Africa and the Baptist Bible Institute.
He pastors the Peniel-Salem Baptist Church in Pretoria beginning in 2011.
He has been married to Sanna Mapula since 1986 and they have three sons.”
