Note: Rapid covid tests are not accceptable.

Includes lodging, meals, transportation, translators, ministry materials

For those who have not been vaccinated, COVID-19 testing is required before leaving Uganda. We hire a lab specialist to do this testing for the team before traveling to the airport. 

What to expect


Lodging is equipped with air conditioning, hot water, showers, and toilets. Bunk beds are equipped with mosquito net tents that zip secure to protect against mosquitos at night.

Food safety

All meals and beverages are prepared in-house with water that has been boiled. For extra safety measures, the drinking water is also filtered after boiling. Meats prepared in-house are carefully selected and only purchased through trusted suppliers that freeze their meats immediately after butchering.

Daily routine

Breakfast is typically 7AM and the team departs each morning at 8AM to do the mission work at hand such as pastor training, building a church, or evangelizing in the villages. Each evening, the group returns to lodging around 5:00PM to wash up and get ready for supper followed by a de-brief each night when everyone shares about their day. It is always wonderful to hear the team members share how the Lord worked in the lives of the teams and in the lives of the village people.


Uganda’s weather is similar to the southeast region of the United States. Prepare for the hot sun like you would in the states. Ladies appreciate wearing dresses as it keeps them cool. A dress or skirt below the knee is also the dress code in the villages. 


Villagers are usually welcoming and hospitable, and they will offer their best seats to you while they sit or kneel on the ground. It is considered disrespectful to not accept their best seats. We always accept their seats, but for safety we never accept their food.

While in the village, one can expect to relieve themself at the community latrine which usually includes flooring and walls made of concrete… and a 30-feet deep hole that is approximately 6 inches in diameter.

What to pack

How you'll help

Train pastors

While in Uganda, your team can lead a pastor conference for our pastors in training. To prepare your team, Spiritual Discipline by Donald Whitney is an excellent book that is already broken down into daily topics. For example, Day 2 is on Prayer & Worship. This book could serve as a guide and  help you and your team organize and structure your lecture.

Launch a church

With men ready to teach and people ready to be discipled, the Ugandan villages need a place to gather, worship, and grow in their walk with the Lord. Land, latrine, church shelter, and a small home for the pastor to live in on church property combined cost an average of $5,000.

Share the gospel

We can reach large villages faster with the help of your team. We’ve seen thousands of people respond to the gospel as we have shared from hut to hut. With your help we can reach thousands more! With 20-30 believers, we divide up into teams of three. Each team is provided a translator, and each team is assigned a section of the village to reach during the three days of evangelism.
