Papa Adama Coundoul was born and raised in a small country in west Africa called Senegal. He came to the United States in July 2010 for school and soccer. He attended Vanguard University for one year and San Diego Christian College for three years. He graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He came to know the Lord in 2012 after a long battle of faith within himself. Since becoming a Christian, Papa has invested his time in working with kids at various children’s ministries such as Kids Games, Max Sport Camp, kindergarten/1st grade, Surge and Junior High at North Coast Calvary Chapel. In addition, Papa also owns a private soccer business where he trains and mentors young talents.
He loves kids and has a particular passion for the fatherless. He believes that today’s kids are tomorrow’s leader and anything we invests in them will not go to waste. That is the reason why he is a member of Hope Leadership Academy, to develop and mentor this next generation of leaders.
