Viongozi means “leaders” in Swahili. The purpose of the Viongozi Africentric Leadership Development Program is “to enhance leadership skills for parish ministry from an Africentric perspective,” according to OMM.

The process is intended for individuals new to ministry, individuals considering a leadership position in the church, individuals newly discerned or elected by parish lay leadership or individuals ministering with African American Catholics. Participants must be at least 16 years of age.
