We are so thankful for how far we have come in building the Team & Training Center, and so appreciative of the gifts that have gotten us to where we are. The current situation is that we are in a holding pattern until more funds become available.
However, we have some great news! Believers Church in Tulsa has offered to fund a matching campaign. From now until the end of the year, they will match all gifts for the training center, up to a total of $5,000. This means that if we raise $5,000 between now and the end of the year, they will match that and we’ll actually receive $10,000 for the building!!

Our vision for this space is multi-faceted, and we are earnestly seeking the Lord’s guidance in all of it. One of the things that excites us is the equipping opportunities that will be opened up or improved. This building has been designed in such a way that we will have a good setting for bringing small training cohorts together of as many as 50 people for non-residential events. The environment is quiet, beautiful, and away from the distractions that often hinder our trainings. Through partnerships with our friends who own a guest house within walking distance, we should even be able to host up to 30 people for multi-day events. In the building itself, we’ll be able to readily house a dozen people. This will be so helpful for training purposes. We will be able to pull people away for two to three days of focused learning and relational investment at relatively low cost. We also envision hosting retreats for Christian leaders, enabling them to come away for teaching and experiences focused on prayer and spiritual formation. In fact, the possibilities seem almost endless.
In addition to this, we look forward to using the space as a team center, hosting short-term teams and interns to both learn and join us in the work here in Masaka. There is also an individual-sized prayer room in the facility as well, and we are excited about having this set-aside space available for teams, learning cohorts, and members of the community.
Our contractor is telling us that we need an additional $40,000 to complete the building. If you would like to contribute to this project, follow this link. Again, remember that whatever you give between now and the end of the year will be matched by Believers Church.
Thank you so much for reading this, and for your interest in our lives and ministry. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you!
God bless you!
