As long-term missionaries sent out from Rezlife Church, Aimee and David Kyambadde (daughter and son-in-law of Senior Pastors Bill and Sharon Predovich), founded and pastor Rezlife Church Lubowa, Uganda. This thriving congregation is extremely "good ground" for our local church to be supporting in a variety of ways.
Rezlife Church Lubowa launched its first service in January 2010, just three days after Pastor David Kyambadde buried his eldest sister. For years she prayed for her brother, often telling him he was called to pastor. Imagine her elation when he told her he had an experience with God while flying from England back to Uganda. Pastor David says of that experience: "I really can’t explain what happened to me. I just knew it was time to go back to Uganda and start a church, and I had no doubt.”
He and his wife Aimee planned to begin the ministry in February 2010. But due to his sister's unexpected passing at the beginning of the year, David decided not to waste any time and began right away. A unique, contemporary ministry with traditional foundations, Rezlife Church Lubowa's passion is to reach its community with the Gospel in creative ways. Using methods like sports, music and family-fun time (in addition to preaching and teaching the Word), this vibrantly growing congregation, located in a suburb of Kampala, implements activities and projects that meet tangible community needs.
Pastor Aimee says, "Preaching and teaching is not enough here in Uganda. We want a person to experience God as One who cares about them. He is the only God who will walk with them, talk with them, comfort, guide and experience life with them. He loves each unconditionally and will touch their lives wherever they will open the door. God cares where it matters most -- in their daily lives, the families they cherish, the things they love and hate, the needs that plague them, the hope they fight for, the accomplishments they take pride in, and failures they don't.
The Kyambadde's are known for being real, open, and straight forward. Reaching out to people many often overlook and in ways that are unusual or non-traditional is common place for them. Such traits are exemplified by the start of their ministry to street children in 2000 called "Home Again." They have raised fifty former street boys -- a commitment many could not understand. But they saw potential untapped and lives that needed guidance.
