Trinity Center for World Mission directly invests in a select group of students who attend the two reformed theological institutes in Uganda – Westminster Christian Institute and African Reformed Theological Seminary. Our sponsorship enables the education of men and women who are focused on seeking ordination as well as those seeking a role in counseling and education. Our students come from a range of backgrounds and a variety of tribes from across Uganda. Their theological training is vital to Christianity’s future in Uganda and across Africa. These men and women will return to their homes better equipped to carry on the work of the Kingdom in evangelizing, planting churches, pastoring and making disciples.
Meet some of the students that your donations are sponsoring as they seek to grow in knowledge of God and His Kingdom, and to spread the Gospel throughout Africa:
“I am grateful to God for enabling TCWM to sponsor my studies”
Nelson Chebet is married, the father of four children, and a teacher by profession. He confessed Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 21 and is active in ministry with the Church of Uganda. He participates with his church in mission work, preaching and teaching. His wife and children are also believers and support him in his work of ministry. Nelson is eager to complete his studies at Westminster Christian Institute Uganda, and grateful for the sponsorship he receives from TCWM.
“My prayer and thanks is that God gives me grace to finish this course”
Luke Chemusto sees God’s grace in every aspect of his life: the Christian family he was born into, the church he is a part of, and in being sponsored by TCWM in his theological studies at Westminster Christian Institute Uganda. Through the years Luke has been active in teaching and preaching in his church as a layman, but his Pastor has shared that he sees Luke’s ministry growing and improving as he gains a seminary education at Westminster Christian Institute Uganda. Luke is looking forward to finishing his courses and continuing to serve God faithfully.
“… My prayer is that I may serve in the ministry as a pastor and missionary of Jesus Christ…”
Joel has been a Christian for the past 18 years and serves his home church as a teacher and preacher of the Gospel. He is eager to share the Word with Christians and also unbelievers, encouraging them to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. He and his family pray for his needed financial support so he may finish his studies at Westminster Christian Institute Uganda and enter the ministry as an ordained Pastor and missionary of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“I thank you for your support and may God bless you for all your efforts to support us”
Edwin Cherop was led to the Lord by two of his older sisters who became born again Christians. Seeing their lives challenged him to believe as he witnessed their strength in the Lord even in the face of persecution. In high school in 2010 he met other Christians who were also eager to pray and share the gospel. Churches in Edwin’s area often have no trained ministers and are led by lay leaders with little bible knowledge. Seeing Edwin’s commitment of faith and to the word, and his gifts for preaching and teaching, his church leaders encouraged him to attend school for theological studies. Edwin’s deep desire is to grow in true bible knowledge so that he can better evangelize, teach, plant churches, and help raise up more church leaders and preachers who will also work to spread God’s Kingdom.
“I am happy that by God’s grace I am saved … and I am praying that God gives me the grace to serve him faithfully”
Jacob is thankful that all his family are also born again Christians and they continually encourage him as he pursues an education at Africa Reformed Theological Seminary. He is involved at his church in Kapchorwa, helping in pastoring, teaching, preaching and in mercy ministries. He is thankful for the financial support he receives from TCWM to further his training and education so that he is better equipped to serve the church of Christ.
….” I hope to be a blessing to those around me as I seek to grow in service to God.”
Denis is the oldest of seven brothers and sisters, is unmarried, and is eager to complete a seminary education at Westminster Christian Institute Uganda. He has been attending Sunday school since he was young, is now a teaching elder in his church, and he feels called by God to full time Christian ministry. He and his family are thankful for the funding he receives from TCWM donors’ gifts that provide his tuition needs.
“…. I pledge I will not disappoint you.”
Since Moses Maliamuga became a believer in 1989 he has served as a youth leader, a church pastor and an evangelist. His wife and unborn child recently died during childbirth. Moses still has a young son, Joshua, who he is raising alone as he also attends Westminster Christian Institute Uganda. Through many trials and difficulties, Moses is a faithful man of God, a committed father, and is dedicated to doing well in his studies. His vision is to spread the reformed faith and plant churches in Uganda and Ethiopia, and has committed himself to faithfully spread the gospel throughout Africa.
“It is my desire to show others the Love I received while still in sin that they may come to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ”

His life changed at that point, and with zeal and passion he has been working alongside local pastors to teach and plant new churches. His desire is to fulfill the great commission by evangelizing the lost and raising up disciples who will also carry out the mission of the church. Michael is married, and blessed with three children. He is thankful and appreciative that TCWM is able to expand the Kingdom of God throughout Africa by supporting the training of gospel ministers.
