Pastor James and Dorcas Luwaga – Uganda, Africa
- James and Dorcas have four children: Maggie, Tina, Iman, and Leasa
- James is the pastor of Jubilee Fellowship church
- Through disciple-making and intentional church ministries, James has answered the call of God to minister to the communities directly surrounding the church.
- Background of Jubilee Fellowship: Jubilee Fellowship Church was started in September 2008, with a church plant in Bukaya West village in Njeru Town Council, Buikwe District. Since the initial activity a number of programs have been started by the church and these include friendship evangelism initiative, a Nursery school and day care, a Primary school, youth ministry, and a community development program. Of recently the church ministry is planning a new direction in which there will be a leadership development training incorporated into the church programs. Currently there are 23 children on education support by the church in the initiated schools in two neighbouring communities of Njeru Town Council. These supported children come from needy household especially in Kiryowa village where the church wants to concentrate a community transformation program.
This church initiative was started as a unique contribution to the national challenge of the Uganda situation where in 2010 there was an estimated 2.5 million HIV AIDS ‘orphans’; a very fast growing population with over 68% below the age of 24; a nation where Primary education is meant to be freely provided by Government but there is inadequate capacity to provide quality education due to poor facilitation and class sizes of over 160 pupils; secondary education very costly that many families cannot afford it; and tertiary/university education even more costly.
The church also set up a benevolent arm known as Supportive Initiative for Development (SID) which is registered as a community Based Organization with the government of Uganda. SID is responsible to coordinate and manage all church related social actions and projects aimed at community development and empowering of beneficiaries.
