From the 1960-70’s Uganda faced significant internal turmoil through intertribal warfare and an ineffective governmental system. Previously Christians suffered intense persecution under regimes of strict governance, but Uganda has since instituted freedom of religion among its citizens. Since 1986, Uganda has experienced historic revival and growth. A strong evangelical presence in the country has led to widespread prayer and renewal movements. Furthermore, high church attendance and a surge in public prayer sessions has paved the way for Uganda to become one of the most Christian nations in the world.
The spiritual fervor among Ugandan’s has been contagious which has had a transformative effect throughout the country. With crime rates decreasing in Uganda’s capital city, Kampala, and more than half of the population attending evangelically oriented church services the Church has seen wonderful breakthroughs; however, they are also aware of the challenges that remain to promote unity among various denominations represented throughout the country.
Humura Mission Agency currently has two indigenous missionaries in Uganda. Pastor William Nviri oversees a church in Junja, Busoga in the Eastern region while Pastor Patrick Ocam pastors a church in Pakwach, Nebbi in the Northern region of Uganda.
