Our mission in Uganda is to in invite people into a place of belonging and purpose as they encounter God and find their identity in him. We are doing this through the work of Freedom Church, a church planting movement out of the U.K. with 16 locations in 9 countries around the world. Freedom is active in many ways throughout Kampala, holding weekly services, small groups, and running an outreach to boys living on the streets called Freedom Heroes with the goal of taking boys on a journey off the streets and back into family.
Our work with Freedom includes:
- Freedom Heroes Coordinators – We are the leaders of our work to settle boys living on the streets back into school and family.
- Pastoral care – We run a mid-week small group in our home and mentor individuals out of that group
- Kids Pastors – We are the kids pastors for the church, leading a team of 20 volunteers as we help our kids explore their own journey of faith.
- Supporting the international work of the church – Richard works with the central team in the UK on operations projects that support the movement as a whole.
