"One of the biggest challenges that state side Samoan churches face is the youth/young generation who leave the Lotu Ta’iti and go to English speaking churches because of the language barrier," he said. "A lot of folks who were born and raised in the church in Samoa move to America and automatically lose that connection with the church altogether."

SCCC-SA was founded by Maturo Taula’i, Ausage Suiaunoa and Feu’u Suiaunoa. Moderator/Taitaifono is Maturo Taula’i, Secretary/Treasurer is Ausage Suiaunoa. John Puni is Tiakono Taitai.

"We are blessed and honored to be serving here in San Antonio, alongside such loving and dedicated people as the mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters here in our Congregation," Rev. DeVoux told tautalatala. "It’s not the quantity – it’s the quality! It doesn’t matter how much you give – but if you do not give it with your heart and there is no love – it' meaningless! God deserves our absolute best all the time!"
The Samoan Congregational Christian Church of San Antonio is located at 500 Pilgrim Drive, San Antonio, Texas, 78213.
