Manne was born in Nigeria, West Africa. He has led three previous church plants, in Nigeria, The Netherlands and in the USA. In 2015, he moved his family from Baltimore, MD, to Pearland, TX, driven by the vision of a new life-giving church that would invite people from diverse backgrounds into relationship with Christ and with one another. Eventually that vision was launched on September 26, 2021.
