Annual Conference

Living Word Uganda runs an annual conference in January bringing together university and tertiary institution students from across the country. Reputable and faithful church leaders and student workers serve as facilitators and speakers.

The teaching programme is structured as follows:

  1. An exposition
    Each day begins with a Bible exposition by a selected pastor-teacher.
  2. Bible Overview
    In order to aid the lectures on exegesis, the first full day of the conference is given over to a Bible overview.
  3. Lecture on exposition and exegesis
    This is the mainstay of teaching at the conference and occurs on mornings 2-4 of the conference and is led by experienced facilitators.
  4. Small group work
    In the afternoons, students are given time to prepare for small groups, which will occur later in the afternoons. The groups provide the opportunity for questions and clarification of understanding after the lectures, but primarily are for students to present their own expositions / exposition outlines. Feedback, facilitation and pastoral care for these groups are provided by experienced group leaders who oversee between 8-10 students.
  5. Topical Talks
    Occurring in the evenings, these are lead by experienced Ugandan preachers and cover issues of particular relevance to the Ugandan student context.

Africa Bible University has graciously hosted all the previous conferences and continues to avail its facilities for future conferences.

The next conference will run from 7th to 12th January 2019.
