Living Word Uganda is an evangelical non-denominational initiative born out of the commitment to serving Christian university students by equipping them with tools and skills for faithful Bible handling and teaching.
We believe that when clearly taught, God's Word, by God's power, is alive and active to radically change lives.
We long to see God's Word faithfully taught across Uganda, trusting God that then His gospel will be received not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.

1)To develop among students:
i) A greater appreciation of the benefits of faithful exegesis and expository preaching.
ii) A greater appetite for training in the skills of faithful exegesis and expository preaching.
iii) An atmosphere in which gifted students are encouraged and supported to pursue such training.
2) To equip students with the principles of faithful biblical exegesis and exposition, in order that God may be glorified in their own contexts as they:
i) Feed personally from God's living word.
ii) Teach and preach the word of God faithfully to others.
iii) Correct and rebuke error where necessary.
iv) Teach others these principles and encourage further training in their understanding and application.
3) Unite like-minded individuals and organisations committed to the faithful exegesis and exposition of God's word in East Africa so that:
i) Such individuals and organizations are strengthened and kept accountable by each other in their work.
ii) A more co-ordinated approach among those involved is developed in this great task.
iii) Amongst such people, Christ's love is manifested across denominational, geographical, tribal and other boundaries.
These aims will be met via an annual conference, committed to teaching the principles of faithful exegesis and exposition to undergraduate students. The first such conference occurred from 13th-18th January 2014 with 169 delegates. Follow up is provided by the staff team at regional and university events, lectures, Bible studies and one-to-one teaching throughout the year.
In addition to the conference, Living Word Uganda is starting an apprenticeship scheme targeting university graduates with a more comprehensive training within the context of a church. Follow this link for more.
