He was born on October 16th of 1968, Huruma is the 6th child in a family of 9, though 1 has been promoted to eternity. He was born to (the now late) Bishop Enos & Margret Nkone who were serving God with the Free Pentecostal Church of Tanzania (FPCT). Even though he was born and raised in a Christian environment, it was not until 1985 when he was a freshman at Kigoma Secondary School that he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. A year later, God called him to ministry – but he continued with school for the next decade, going to Pugu High School studying Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and later on to the now Ardhi University (then University College of Land And Survey) for an Advanced Diploma in Architecture.
While at Pugu he served as the Chairperson of Christian Students Fellowship for Dar es Salaam and Coast regions. Before joining the university, he served 1 year in the national service at JKT Oljoro camp. Throughout the university he was the Chairperson of the Christian Students Fellowship all his years, and as soon as he graduated, he volunteered at TAFES (Tanzania Fellowship of Evangelical Students) head office for one year.
He got married to his beloved wife, Pastor Joyce on December 7, 1996. They have over the years underwent several ministry training from accredited institutions from Canada, South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania. They are blessed with two sons and two daughters – Kenneth, Jimmy, Joan, and Marion. He holds a BA (Bible and Theology) and a MA (Biblical Studies) both from Global University – USA. Pastor Huruma has an honorary PhD from Omega Global Univeristy – South Africa, an honor bestowed to him because of his great work in the lives of youths and students.
From 1999 to 2002 he and Joyce served as the Youth Pastors at Ilala Assemblies of God church in Dar es Salaam, serving under Bishop Titus Mkama. In 2002 he and his wife moved to re-found Muhimbili Assemblies of God, then with only 15 members. They have transformed it into the now Victory Christian Center, a multi-cultural, multi-national, vibrant Pentecostal church now located at Mbezi A in Dar es Salaam.
