Early life[edit source | edit]
KANYABIGEGA was born in Bweza. Bweza is one of the locations of Mugozi, located near the Lake Kivu, surrounded by forests. Mugozi is located in Rwamatamu – Kibuye. Now this area is located in Nyamasheke District, Ouest Province Rwanda.
Kanyabigega Silas was born and grew up in a Christian family. His father Buhake Thaddee was a Leader of a Local Church of Free Methodist Church in Rwanda, located at Bweza, Mugozi. For Free Methodist Church, see http://fmcusa.org/
It was In 1959 that BUHAKE started the Free Methodist Chapel of Mugozi, which stills working even now. A little before, he had implanted the Adventist Church of Kinunu, in Gisenyi, now Ouest Province (Rwanda). He was Adventist Catechist before becoming Free Methodist Catechist. Then, after becoming Free Methodist Catechist, it’s when he started the following Free Methodist Chapels: Nyagatovu in Rusenyi, Gishyita,
Mu Ishya in Gishyita,
Buragiza near Mu Ishya, Gishyita,
Mugozi in Rwamatamu
Kanyabigega Silas mimics the way of his father in implanting the Free Methodist Church in Kinyinya, and in Bumbogo, located in Kigali-Rural Province at that time. For the moment, Kinyinya and bumbogo are located in Kigali City Province.
The Free Methodist Church was not known in the area above.
KINYINYA Parish was founded in 1990. The Chapel of BUMBOGO is founded in 2002.
The Free Methodist Church, Kinyinya Parish, began in the same house where lived Kanyabigega Silas’s Family , married on April 1, 1989, but not yet Pastor (1990). He became Pastor 1991.
In a brief delay, the Church growth, and we decided to move the Congregational church to a rented house of Nyabyenda, located at Murama, and we transformed the House-Chapel, in order to have a picture of the church.
After the war and Genocide of 1994 we move to another house at Murama. That house was very close to the building of the Parish Kinyinya which works even at this time.
In 2002, again by the initiative of Pastor Silas KANYABIGEGA, The Free Methodist Church, Parish Kinyinya, built another Chapel at Bumbogo. Both chapels are still working well. Silas Kanyabigega is now a Pastor in the USA Free Methodist Church. See http://fmcusa.org/
