The Apia Harvest Centre Church at Togafuafua has embarked on a new chapter in its journey, with the ordination of their new Senior Pastor on Saturday 8th February, 2020.
Pastor Amosa Pouoa and his wife Sarah take over the leadership of the congregation which has been vacant since the passing of Reverend Dr. Fa’afetai Fata in July last year. Reverend Fata had served as the Senior Pastor since the church was established in 1997.
The mulitcultural church of over 200 members is part of the Assemblies of God in Samoa and home of Teen Challenge Samoa, an organisation that deals with at-risk youths and young offenders.

Pastor Amosa and Sarah will be overseeing all these programs as part of the Senior Pastor’s role for Apia Harvest Centre Church whose vision statement is to, “Build up strong families in the Word & Spirit of God to impact the church, cities and nations.”
The centrally located multicultural church in Apia offers an English service on Sunday mornings, and a Samoan service on Sunday evenings.
Pr Amosa’s appointment comes after he has served as an Associate Pastor for six years. He is a graduate of the Apia Harvest Centre Bible College, where he is now also serving as a lecturer.
The 45 year-old father of four is a civil engineer by profession and runs several businesses with his wife Sarah. He is from the village of Lufilufi and is the son of Leasoiloafaleupolu Pouoa Fuioa and Fetuoleava Amosa Pouoa.
Reverend Taei Ti’eti’e of the Assemblies of God in Samoa officiated the ordination service, while the Word was delivered by the Superintendent of the AOG in Samoa, Reverend Dr. Tavita Pagaialii.
