I Live Again Uganda is an indigenous ministry with a vision to bring hope to the people of Northern Uganda through holistic restoration and to live a life of purpose.
For more than 20 years Northern Uganda was ravaged by war. The Lords Resistance Army (a rebel army) was determined to overthrow the government during that time. Over 1.8 million individuals were forcibly displaced and over 30,000 children were abducted as child soldiers. The impacts of war still remain and I Live Again Uganda is focused to bring much needed healing and restoration to the region.
The ministry of I Live Again Uganda began in 2008 and currently has an office in Acholi Quarter of Kampala as well as in Gulu in Northern Uganda. I Live Again Uganda provides Trauma Counseling, Discipleship, Education Support, and Resettlement of families affected by war.
I Live Again Uganda has acquired 23 acres of land I Northern Uganda in the Atyang area of Gulu District. The vision for this land site is “The Potter’s House”. The focus for visitors to The Potter’s House is to encounter The Potter. As God is our Potter and we are the clay we must go to Him to find the healing from the wounds, scars, and needs in our life. Our identity is found in Him and at The Potter’s House we can be reminded of who we are and who we are called to be. We believe that healing will come to so man at The Potter’s House.
This multi-disciplinary Master Planning effort will seek to accommodate the following program on I Live Again Uganda’s 23-acre site:
High/Low Ropes Course
We will also develop conceptual designs for The Potter’s House first-phase structures – the Training Center and the Guest House.
Will you consider joining our team as we partner with I Live Again Uganda to design facilities needed to spread the living gospel through trauma counseling and truly restorative healing?
