As a family, we have decided to visit the churches of our students and friends once a month to see how they are doing and to bring them some encouragement from Gods Word. With the permission of each pastor, we have also decided to allow you to join us on that journey so that you will be more informed as you think about and pray for the churches of Uganda. We pray that these short Pastoral Bios would encourage you in your walk with God and that you would grow in your love for Jesus as you see how he is moving in the hearts of so many people!

 

Pastor Kinyera Charles and his wife Grace

Pastor Kinyera Charles is our neighbor in the small town of Adak and is one of our students at the Terebinth School of Discipleship. It has really been a pleasure to watch him grow in his knowledge and understanding of God’s word. He was born into a poor pagan family in which his father had many wives. After his mother committed suicide he turned to Alcohol. But when he gave his life to the LORD he was freed from his addiction and felt the calling on his life to start a church. Charles planted Adak Bible Community Church in 2012 with a desire to bring physical and spiritual transformation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ to his community!

 

 

 

 

 

Pray for Adak Bible Community Church:

  • Pray – That the Father would help Charles as he seeks to teach his children and the young people of the church to serve God.
  • Pray – That God would bring wisdom and understanding to the elders and leaders of the church.
  • Pray – That the Gospel would be understood in the Community of Adak and that hearts would be transformed as they learn of God’s great love for them.
