The team will be based in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Kampala is a bustling, busy city with all the issues and opportunities that any large, modern cities has – traffic, pollution, crime as well as cinemas, malls and restaurants. Kampala also serves as a magnet to peoples from outside Kampala, drawing all sort so people from across Uganda. You will find many Christians, Muslims, Hindus and African Traditional Religion adherents in Kampala. Learning how to live, learn and thrive among such mixture will be the challenge of the team.
Vision & Strategy
This is an orientation teams, lasting one year, that are designed to train new missionaries, both long term and short term who have the intention of continuing on in long term, cross-cultural, outreach work.
Ministry and type of work
Participants will live in Kampala among unreached people groups but will have opportunities to travel out from Kampala to go to more rural outreach locations. Over the course of the programme, team members will be mentored by team leaders who will be focused on the growth and development of the team members and leading them through the team’s curriculum.
The team will work in partnership with a local church as they learn culture and local religion, language-learning skills, the dynamics of teamwork and church partnerships, and essential communication skills for future ministry.
