Doing Life Together Trip June 16-30 2018


Discipleship is about doing life together.  Whether cooking, doing Bible Study, sharing stories, listening to hurts, discussing Christian World views, or having fun sharing a meal it is relational.

The trip can accommodate 4-6 people staying in Kingdom View Ministry House with Mark and Margaret Noblin. The Noblins serve the students and staff at Uganda Christian University in Mukono, Uganda, an hour outside of Kampala the capital on the way to Kenya.

In addition we work with the UCU Christian Lawyers Fellowship and Honors College doing team-building, problem-solving exercises and leadership training from a Christian perspective. The university has an enrollment of 8,500 students with 40 fellowship groups averaging 20-150 students each doing ministry outreaches. It is accredited by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU-USA) with a foreign exchange program.

We also will spend a day in a traditional African village ministering to children and teaching adults. Another day will be spent teaching sexual purity to secondary students at a boarding school.

September 2014 Trip-Home Is Where the Heart Is

Movie Night with the Law Fellowship Leadership team
Over the last couple of years Dan, Mark and Margaret have found the most meaningful “ah ha” moments in discipleship have happened when we are doing ministry from the apartment on the Uganda Christian University campus.  The apartment has become our “home away from home” and also is a place to show hospitality to current and former students, faculty and staff, local and international pastors, and ministry partners. 

On an average day you might find us in the early morning at the Honors College sharing a devotional with 15-20 students or later having students drop by between classes for a muffin, warm from the oven.
  In the afternoon we schedule appointment averaging 2 hours each to meet with students who want to discuss their careers, develop their CVs/Resumes or to discuss relationship issues.  When dinner comes around you find all of us cooking, sometimes with students helping us because they want to learn how to cook on western appliances.   We have small dinner parties almost every night to reconnect with university staff members, ministry partners like Navigator leaders and their spouses who need some pampering. Many times you find 20 budding law students or honors students huddled in the small sitting room watching a Christian movie, eating popcorn…ready to discuss how the theme is relevant to their lives.

Earl discussing careers with Alfonse
The common thread is one on one chats about what the Lord is doing in our lives.  Whether it is evaluation our dreams in the future with God’s guidance, encouraging each other in prayer, developing our God-given problem-solving skills to developing a business plan or just sharing life; it is a rich time of building memories and sharpening one another biblically.

In the future we will be offering trips for a few people who might want to participate in lifestyle discipleship on campus.  As we develop Kingdom View there will be many opportunities to join in a variety of activities.


Go and Make Disciples!
