Going Global – Lifeworkx Ministry in Uganda (Video)

Lifeworkx, a ministry of One Challenge, is a life-changing experience that is expanding globally. Recently, Steve and his team, Nate and Mark, returned from an incredible Lifeworkx event in Uganda. “Going to Uganda was an answer to Pastor Timuntu’s (Pastor Tim) prayer for a Lifeworkx conference for Uganda rural pastors. He and I texted for many months about this possibility, and after a generous gift from my church, we began organizing the event,” Steve says.

This 12-day adventure began with a 36-hour journey from Colorado to Uganda. The conference took place in Nawanyago, with 144 pastors, both male and female, who came from neighboring districts to the conference site at the Nawanyago Miracle Centre Church.


Life Changing Impact of Lifeworkx

In the four-day Lifeworkx conference, one of the most impactful and powerful days is “Reframing the negative messages from our story.” “We divided the large group into small groups of four to six pastors. In these groups, each pastor shared a root story that needed to be healed by placing Jesus in that story. The lies they believed had to be replaced with the truth of the Word of God. We, at Lifeworkx, call this life transformation,” Steve says.


These 144 pastors have the potential to impact tens of thousands of Ugandans in their churches and communities. At the end of the four days, the senior pastor of Nawanyago Miracle Centre Church said, “This Lifeworkx ministry has brought new life to Uganda. This is what our pastors needed. This is what we have been looking for, and Lifeworkx is bringing healing to the nations.”


Other Ministry

The time in Uganda allowed these three men to also visit ministries of Pastor Tim. Pastor Tim is the Executive Director of Hope in Christ Alone Outreach Ministries which is responsible for:

  • Distributing Operation Christmas Child boxes
  • A school for area children and AIDS orphans
  • A micro business for HIV/AIDS women, single moms and widows

Steve, Nate, and Mark were also able to help the vision of another pastor, Pastor James, by sharing the gospel with 1,500 children and their Uganda sponsors. One day of this was at a school, where 846 children were in attendance.


Global opportunity

Lifeworkx has been invited to return to Uganda and also has invitations to India, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, and Niger. Steve says he prays the Lord will provide abundantly for these opportunities and the many more that may come his way.
