History

In 1990, our founder Pastor Peter Kasirivu started Africa Renewal through Gaba Community Church in response to the overwhelming needs he saw in his community. Pastor Peter found that many people in Gaba didn't have access to basic necessities, including healthcare and education. Furthermore, they had never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Through his experience and first-hand knowledge of Gaba, he started a ministry that provided real solutions to the lost, vulnerable, hurting, and sick in his community.

Under Pastor Peter's leadership, Africa Renewal has grown to seven affiliated ministries that impact more than 30 communities across Uganda. Together, through the combined efforts of the team and countless volunteers, donors, and sponsors, Africa Renewal has planted more than 650 churches, trained over 2,700 leaders, and sponsored 15,000-plus children.

Through Africa Renewal, people are finding hope. Children have access to education, medical care, leadership training and spiritual discipleship, and young adults are earning advanced degrees. Pastors are receiving theological training and are able to care for their church congregations and beyond. Families and communities as well as U.S. church partners and sponsors get to experience renewal first-hand.


Program accomplishments

Since our inception in 1990, Africa Renewal has planted more than 700 churches, trained over 2,700 leaders, and sponsored 15,000-plus children through the combined efforts of our team and countless volunteers, donors, and sponsors just like you.
