inviting people to God, community and wholeness
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
A little about the missionaries we support through our church ⬇️
Our Vision: Partner with the local church to equip and mentor young
people in the Bible to raise up a generation of Christ followers who will
reproduce themselves to transform a community!
Our Mission: To give every man, woman, and child multiple opportunities to hear, see, and respond to the Gospel.
Ministry Highlights of 2021: Recently, Moses was miraculously given a
motorcycle as a gift so that he can move around easily to carry out the Lord’s work. A colleague said he has a “dangerous anointing” and we are anxious to see how God will open doors for preaching, teaching, and discipleship. Moses continues to speak on the radio, on a program he has called “At the Well.” Karen has been plugging away at editing Roots to Fruits curriculum. We believe that if this curriculum is used well by the private schools in Uganda, this new material can transform the education system. It’s been a hard year in ministry, and many missionary friends have left the field, but God is still at work here in Gulu.
