Preparing Leaders for Ministry in Uganda

By Staff, Jan 14, 2020

In anticipation of an upcoming home assignment, a missionary in Uganda is pouring himself into leaders who will shepherd the church in his absence. One such man is the church’s pastoral intern. He is leading a weekly Bible study discussing the sermon and Scripture from Sunday service and facilitating the group’s prayer time. This is an important aspect of the team’s leadership development. Missionaries also work with the leadership team by bringing them along for pastoral visits, praying with them, and helping to guide how they are doing ministry in the church plant.

On a recent pastoral visit, the missionary took two of the leaders with him to meet with a brother who has been struggling with two years of unemployment—a common struggle in Uganda. The Ugandan leaders were able to encourage this man because they’ve faced similar trials. They brought the gospel in ways the missionary could not. It was on-the-job training that resulted in a deeper ministry impact.

Thank you so much for your support of Mission to the World. Your prayers and gifts help prepare the next generation of leaders around the globe who are taking the gospel to their own communities and beyond.
