Pastors for Uganda


Sponsor a pastor!

For many years the Gospel has been spread throughout the continent of Africa. Though many have been reached, few have been discipled in biblical truth. 

90% of African Pastors have little to no training.

90% of the 90% will never have a chance to receive any kind of biblical training. 

These numbers are shocking. Unfourtunately, many African Pastors interpret the Bible and teach false theology based off tradition, the health and wealth Gospel, or visons and dreams. You can help change those numbers by sponsoring a pastor. Lancaster Bible College is working with the Pastor Discipleship Network in Uganda to teach biblical truth to Pastors. Now God's truth is spreading thoughout Uganda. 

Pastors Discipleship Network originated from a passion for biblical education and the belief that God's truth changes lives. Founder Richmond Wandera, a graduate Compassion child, showed a thirst for learning throughout his childhood. After completing his early education, he was accepted into Compassion's Leadership Development Program and attended college.

Serving as the pastor of his childhood church, Richmond noticed how he and his fellow pastors struggled in minstry due to a lack of biblical training. Richmond set a goal to learn more about the Bible and attended Moody Graduate School. Studying God's Word, Richmond shared his education with his fellow pastors in Uganda. His passion for disciplship grew, sparking a dream to change the lives of pastors in his community. After graduation, he returned to Uganda and began the Pastors Discipleship Network.

Since that dream started, over 3,000 pastors have been discipled in East Africa.

You can help continue that dream. In 2015, the Pastors Discipleship Network partnered with Lancaster Bible College to provide master's level education to Ugandan pastors. Leveraging technology, these pastors are enthusiastically embracing this educational opportunity.
