Rev. Amos J. Disasa
Amos has served at FPC Dallas since 2019. He and his family made their way here from Columbia, SC, where he most recently served as the Co-Pastor of DOWNTOWN CHURCH. Amos is married to Sarah, a West Virginia native, and together they parent Abraham and Shepherd.
When he was a young child, Amos' family moved from Ethiopia, where he was born, to South Carolina. Along the way to Dallas, Amos earned degrees from Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C. and the Wake Forest University School of Divinity in Winston-Salem, N.C.
When he is not scrunching his face for the camera (see above), you'll probably find Amos piddling in his workshop or horizontal with a book.
His involvement in justice ministry began in 2001 with his work with former street children through Hope Unlimited for Children in Brazil. Since that experience, his heart was set for those on the margins of society and with their backs against a wall. Amos helped start Foot Care Ministry, the Light the Way coalition of churches, and Transitions, all organizations serving the marginalized and homeless in South Carolina.
