Shalom Church Health

Africa | Project # 95946


The Church in Uganda is growing, and most Ugandans identify as Christians. This sounds encouraging until you realize that the Church is rife with materialistic attitudes, polygamy, syncretism, false teaching, and numerous divisions. Add to this the fact that most pastors receive little solid biblical training, and it becomes apparent that there’s a huge problem. No wonder the Church is having little transformative gospel impact on the culture despite the growing number of converts.

The Shalom Church Health Network, whose current leadership is from the Presbyterian Church in Uganda, is an organization of pastors and church leaders seeking the health of the local church. This network of church planters, pastors, and other church leaders are concerned with having and encouraging vital, life-giving churches: churches that are having a transforming impact on their communities through the power of the gospel proclaimed in words and demonstrated in deeds.

These leaders are committed to a cross-denominational model of working together to mobilize, encourage, and educate other church leaders on healthy church practices. This is done through regional conferences, informal training sessions on topics relevant to church health, and building local networks led by local church leaders trained in improving and maintaining healthy churches. To equip younger church leaders in the principles of healthy churches, there is also a robust leadership development component.

This is an urgently needed and growing work of revitalization for the Church in Uganda. Please give generously to support this project.
