Ten years ago Paul Seruwagi obeyed God’s call on his life by volunteering as the pastor in charge of Administration and Coordinator of Kampala-based Glory of Christ Ministries’ branch churches scattered throughout the Ugandan countryside. It was during this time that God made it clear to Paul that he was to dedicate himself to serving believers in rural communities.
For the past six years, Paul has worked with Orphan Justice Mission (OJM) coordinating the community development work in three areas in southern Uganda. In early 2013 the schools served by OJM in these communities became the responsibility of SFM-East Africa, and Paul has joined SFM-EA as the full-time Program Coordinator.
Paul and his wife, Theopista, have been married for 13 years, and God has blessed them with one daughter and three sons.
Lydia was 15 when she responded to the call to give her life to Jesus, Christ. She says, “Having God hold my life together and walk me through the journey of life was the most amazing experience of my youth. Throughout school, God gave me a zeal to lead and inspire my fellow youth to live a fruitful life for Christ.”
This purpose became a calling from God for Lydia, as she serves in the capacity of Discipleship Coordinator for SFM-EA. Her responsibilities including developing discipleship programs for the staff and students at all the SFM-partner schools in Kenya and Uganda.
While continuing her education in pursuit of a Bachelors in Theology degree at Pan African Christian University in Kampala, Lydia also serves as an assistant pastor in her local church, helping empower and equip God's people to serve their purpose as well as overseeing children and youth ministry.
