Making disciples of Jesus Christ – raising up godly men and women to lead Uganda and influence the nations for Christ – is a cornerstone of World Shine Ministries.
REACH – RAISE – RELEASE
is what we do. Every activity is planned with the goal of raising up the next generation of godly men and women to release into ministry in whatever vocation they choose. During this trip we led 2 separate, concurrent retreats – one for 11 young men and another for 14 young ladies … 3 days / 2 nights. Our focus was discipleship, working on a deeper level as we explored how to walk more closely with Jesus and process the issues of our world. We talked about such things as identity, validation, temptation, sex & purity… And, we had sweet times of prayer, worship, discussion, and … play.
We have been working with the guys for 4 years and the amount of growth and fruit we see is phenomenal. I am so proud of these guys. I am so glad that Jan Winterburn and Diane Clowers came along and led the retreat for the young ladies. Afterwards, when asked about the weekend, one of the young ladies said, “how do I describe the best weekend of my life?” For some, this was the first time they have ever had a girls retreat to discuss such topics.
