Joseph Matovu

‘My hope is to return to Uganda to prepare to plant a church. I hope, like Paul, to be sharing the gospel and my life with those to whom I minister: “We were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.” (1 Thess 2:8)’

Joseph Matovu is part of a small team hoping to plant a church in Kampala, Uganda in August 2019. Joseph, along with Derek Sekamalira and Caleb Nakina, has been planning for this project since 2014 and, in preparation, has studied and trained at various churches and institutions in Uganda, Kenya and the UK. From September 2018 until August 2019, Joseph intends to continue preparing for the launch of the church by:

  1. Teaching students and ministry trainees alongside Living Word Uganda.
  2. Working part-time as dean of students at Word of Life Africa Bible Institute. 
  3. Starting discipleship fellowship evenings with people interested in joining the plant.

Please show your support for Joseph and this project by partnering with him in prayer and giving.

To enable Joseph’s friends to partner with him throughout 2018 and 2019, you are able to give financially towards him via Crosslinks. Joseph is well known to Crosslinks, having received a Crosslinks bursary for his ministry training from 2015 to 2018. It is also expected that Joseph, Derek and Caleb will apply in due course for the new church plant to become a Crosslinks project
