Minister to discuss transformation of Uganda

September 4, 2007

The Rev. Jackson Senyonga, founder and senior pastor of Christian Life Church in Kampala, Uganda, will speak at 7 p.m. Sept. 16 in Wake Forest University’s Wait Chapel. His lecture, titled “Uganda 25 Years After Idi Amin,” is free and open to the public.

As an infant, Senyonga was abandoned by his mother.  After his father was murdered during Ugandan dictator Idi Amin’s regime, he was left for dead.  Later, his family reclaimed him and he was reunited with his mother.

Today Senyonga is helping to transform Uganda and East Africa. When he founded Christian Life Church 11 years ago, it grew from seven to 2,000 people in two weeks. Currently the church has 40,000 members at more than 600 churches in four African countries.

While in Winston-Salem, Senyonga will speak to area ministers at a luncheon on Sept. 14 at First Baptist Church on Highland Avenue.  He will be the guest speaker during worship services at First Assembly of God Sept. 16, and will give a talk on "Allowing God to Change Men’s Hearts” to the Men’s Ministry at River Oaks Community Church the evening of Sept. 17.
