The Carlsons are now in ENGLAND!
I am overjoyed. After serving our beloved people and staff at Calvary Chapel Kampala for twelve years, God is calling me to transition the flock to national pastorship. I feel overwhelmed with thankfulness for God’s faithfulness and confident that God has greater things in store for the church than they can imagine. And for us.
That said, I’d like to share with you who are journeying with us how God brought me to this decision and what He is calling us to next. First, the decision.
Most Importantly, the CALVARY CHAPEL MOVEMENT has reached a watershed moment in Africa's Great Lakes Region.
Since 2002 the number of Calvary Chapel pastors has grown from one to not less than 150 in East Africa and beyond. There were pastors from eight countries including Liberia at last month’s conference!
Many of these men are home grown―products of Calvary Chapel Bible Colleges in Kenya and Uganda or various schools of ministry. CCK in partnership with Extending Borders planted two churches as recently as August.
Not only has the movement matured numerically but also in leadership. Last year the Calvary Chapel Association formed the East Africa Regional Team to localize oversight and affiliation. Since then we’ve seen the Calvary Chapel family really unite and spread throughout the region. It’s a new season of ministry.
