Hi Friends, I’m excited to tell you that I have been accepted to be part of a short-team missionary team that will be leading a worship conference for pastors and university leaders in Kampala, Uganda this coming January! I am so grateful for this gift from God, to lead and to teach about worship (something you know that I dearly love).
I will be traveling from January 12-24, 2017 with other pastors and seminary and university students through World Gospel Mission in Uganda. The WGM leaders in Uganda have been hungry for teaching on worship and our team is visiting to help with this need as much as we are able. Here is a link to WGM Uganda: http://www.wgm.org/uganda.
We will be leading a worship conference with teaching on subjects such as the theology of worship, the psalms in worship services, prayer, and the structure of worship services. We will also be leading worship in various churches and giving workshops on worship music. I am especially excited about the university students my group will be meeting with and teaching while we’re there. There is a discipleship ministry at Kampala International University, begun back in 2002 by three praying students, which has now become a thriving church on the college campus and has also multiplied discipleship ministries at other universities in the East Africa region. Here is a link to information about this discipleship ministry: http://www.wgm.org/udm. This university-based church has student-led worship teams that my group will be meeting with for relationship building, worshiping together, and teaching on worship and musicality in worship. I am so excited to work with these students and to see their ministry first-hand. Here is a link to the on-campus church website: http://unitedfaithchapel.org/
I absolutely need prayers as I prepare for and participate in the trip. If you would like to be on my prayer team, please comment on this page or send me a message on FB. I am also looking for people who would be willing to help sponsor me on this trip. The total expense of my trip is $3,600, which covers travel, housing, and all expenses while in Uganda.
