Our Work in Gulu

The Mission of the Gulu Methodist Partnership Incorporated (GMPI) is to assist the Gulu, Uganda, United Methodist Church District pastors and churches in their efforts to make Christian disciples and minister to the needs of their churches and communities under the guidance of the East African Conference and Gulu District leaders.

What we do

GMPI has four main foci for ministry.

1. Church Building

The physical presence of a church building helps create community awareness, stability, and ownership. When fellowships, which usually meet in homes or under a tree, grow large enough to need more substantial space, land is purchased and a structure is built. GMPI helps provide funding for land and materials, while locals do much of the labor.

2. Orphan Support

Vulnerable children who attend the local UM churches are given educational support, school supplies & shoes, and attend a weekly bible club through Childero.

3. Water Accessibility

Through Water of Life, local church leaders repair existing boreholes in partnership with local water committees, providing villages and neighborhoods with access to clean water.

4. Leadership Training

Most pastors. both men and women, have no formal training for their role. GMPI helps non-English speakers attend a bible school. Pastors who are proficient in English are sent to the UM training center in Mukono for intensive classes. GMPI also provides conferences for church members to help them grow in their discipleship and leadership capacity.

Our Impact

In addition to repairing more than 20 broken wells, GMPI has assisted indigenous Christians with the planting of nine churches. 18 church leaders attended the most recent Annual Conference, and many of those are receiving bible college training. GMPI also supports 65 vulnerable children in their educational pursuits and discipleship needs. Ministry funds help local churches in their creative outreach activities, including hospital visitation, ministry with the disabled, micro development projects like goats, bees and chickens, and youth and children’s special events. Rev. David Ntogohnya (an Asbury Seminary Graduate), provides overbite to all of these efforts.

I thank God for you all.The fruits which we are seeing today in Gulu UMC ministry and in the life of the ministers is because of GMPI and the great support from those brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.
