An ARM Update

Greetings Friends of Africa Renewal Ministries,

Our desire is to share the progress of Africa Renewal Ministries (ARM) through testimonies, stories, and pictures to all who pray for and support the ministry of raising and equipping generations of Christian Leaders in Africa.

Thank you for your participation in this endeavor for the last 20 years. Countless lives have been impacted through the leaders you have helped us to train!

Many Blessings,

Ps. Peter Kasirivu

Derrick Bazekuketta
A Story of Hard Work & Achievement!

When Derrick Bazekuketta completed his child sponsorship program with Africa Renewal Ministries he set his sights on being admitted to ARM's Next Generation Leadership Program (NGLP).  He applied and prayed that he would be one of the 20 out of 200 applicants accepted.  What happened next was a shock!  

Derrick received an acceptance letter for university sponsorship but not from ARM as he expected. Turns out, Derrick's exam scores were exceptional and got him noticed by the government of Uganda. They were so impressed with him that they granted him a 5 year, fully paid scholarship to study Law at Makerere University!  

Derrick is living proof that ARM's sponsored students are exceptional. We are very proud of Derrick as he starts his journey to become a lawyer here in Uganda. Thank you to all of you, who through your sponsorship, make stories like this possible!
Quick Glimpses of Ministry Happenings    Happenings1
Mwangaza 2013 Choir Selection
In early April, Gaba Community Church welcomed children from 30 of ARM's Child Development sites for a Music Festival.  The festival was used to select the children who would participate in the next Mwangaza Choir tour, in the USA from January to June, 2013. 

For more information on how you can have the children come to your church, visit the choir website or email 
Church & Corporate Leadership Trainings 
As a leadership development organisation, ARM offers several leadership training opportunities throughout the year.  In June, ARM partnered with Jay Mathis from 360 Solutions to train 150 pastors & corporate leaders across Uganda in high performance leadership skills to use in their churches, their workplaces and their homes!  Thank you Jay, for helping us train up generations of Christian Leaders here in Uganda! 

For more information on conferences & training partnership opportunities email Apollo Kaggwa.
ARM's Annual
Jesus Festival
In July, ARM hosted it's 16th Annual Jesus Festival in Gaba. The annual event featured Christian bands and challenging messages that encouraged the youth of Uganda to live out their faith in Jesus Christ. 
Over 3,000 youth attended the event. Even more exciting than the turnout however, were the 200 youth who surrendered their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Glory be to God!

Next Generation Leadership Sponsors Needed!

ARM is in desperate need to cover the scholarship needs of our current 48 NGLP students.  ARM believes that these student leaders have great potential to change our society in terms of healthcare, business, politics, education and much much more!  But we need your help to do this.  

Currently, only half of our University students have full sponsorships. Unfortunately, ARM does not have the resources to fill the gap on its own, and without your help, 24 of our students may have to leave University before they have completed their degrees. 

It costs $200 per month to fully sponsor one student.  We at ARM understand that this may not be financially feasible for many of our donors and therefore, we are currently accepting one-time gifts and partial monthly sponsorship commitments to help keep our students enrolled in their courses.

You can sign up now, online by clicking here!

If paying by check, please make your checks payable to:  
Africa Renewal Ministries and write "NGLP" in the Memo Line.  See our "Donation Information Section" for more information.

Be An ARM Prayer Warrior!

ARM believes 100% in the power of prayer! Whether or not you are able to give or advocate for this ministry, we would encourage you to pray for us on a monthly, weekly or daily basis.
