Our God is a God of missions. His greatest desire is to see called out saints involved in soul saving ministry (Luke 19:10). I believe that we cannot advance the Gospel of Christ without training others to “Go and make Disciples” as we do. Hence my involvement in the training program part of advancing the mission of Christ in Uganda.
God is working through me to empower faithful servant leaders to lead the Lord’s Church to the next level of ministry in our African societies. There is no success in ministry without successors to advance the work after our sunset days. I believer in training those who can faithfully partner with us. God has been working through me to empower those called to do ministry. God is working through MTI to train future church leaders in our African communities. God is working through The Hills Church to contribute to advancing the cause of the Gospel in Uganda by supporting the upkeep of Dennis and Mary Okoth to continue working with the Messiah Theological Institute.
