INITIATIVE FOR THE POOR

In 2007, Pastor James Tiera and his wife Lilian started a church in an impoverished and rough neighborhood in the northwest area of Kampala. In ten years the church has flourished, reaching over a thousand people with outreach ministries, church planting, and micro-finance programs for new businesses. Their next dream is to build a large home and dining hall for young girls where they can live while going to school. This Christmas, we are going to give you the chance to purchase the amount of square feet you want to provide to help Pastor James and his church fulfill this dream!

JANUARY UPDATE

Our goal was to raise at least $80,000 which would allow Pastor James and the Kampala Community Church to complete phase one of this project which will house 100 girls.  However, you gave more that $200,000 - and they have already broken ground and started the project!

THE STORY

In 2007, Pastor James Tiera and his wife Lilian planted a church in an impoverished and rough neighborhood in the northwest area of Kampala, Uganda. They started the church with just 20 people, but it has grown to over 1000 people at their weekend services. 


Some of these girls in the area are orphans or have been abandoned by their families. Others live in an abusive or dangerous family situation. Some are from poor rural villages and need a safe place to stay in the city so they can get an education


Pastor James and the church has a vision to build a large home, which will include dorms, a dining hall, and staff quarters – for these girls where they can live while going to school.
