Gloire Emmanuel Ndongala was born in the Capital of Democratic Republic of Congo, Kinshasa. When he was a child, the tyrant Mobutu came after his father, which put his whole family in danger. By the grace of God, they all escaped and came to America. At the age of 15, his father abandoned his family and he was taken in by a Hispanic family in Colorado, the Lucero’s. Overcoming all these odds, Gloire managed to make it through college graduating with Bachelors in Church Ministries (Leadership), an Associates in Psychology, and an Associates of Arts in Bible. He is married to his lovely wife, Katie, and has two children: Dóxa (son) and Penayel (daughter).
