Journey Church is both humbled and honored to partner with a thriving church in the city of Luzira, Uganda. We have established a long-term relationship with Pastor Alex Mutagabuya and The City Church.
Journey has sent teams to The City Church for the past three summers, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
In 2014, the mission of the team was to develop a stronger relationship with the people in this church and community, coming alongside what is already happening there to proclaim the Gospel, bringing the hope of Jesus to more people. We were also able to partner with The City Church by facilitating a week-long basketball camp to the youth in the community.
In addition, Journey Church has partnered with Africa Renewal Ministries in an effort to support and sponsor children from this community and Alex’s church. Journey Church currently sponsors over 100 kids, offering them an education when otherwise they would not have the opportunity to go to school. Assisting children gain an education is a proven method of ending the cycle of poverty that is so prevalent in this area.
Sponsoring a child at The City Church is tremendously easy, yet life-changing. It only costs $40/month. This provides the child with an education, spiritual discipleship, leadership training & medical attention when needed.
