Cornerstone’s work in Uganda started with a 15-minute conversation between Pastor Yang and Pastor Aloysius in 1994. That inspired Pastor Aloysius to start a church under the name, Cornerstone. Since then, the church has grown and now a network of 24 churches with a total of almost 3,000 people.
One of the great needs in Uganda is solid Bible teaching, as Christianity is widespread but yet corruption abounds. Our Bible schools in Uganda have had more than 700 graduates since 2005. These schools stretch the capital city, Kampala, to the far western region of Uganda.
Our Cornerstone Primary Schools continue to reach hundreds of children on an annual basis. These schools are supported through the Cornerstone Kids Sponsorship Programme. Thousands of children who otherwise would not have been able to go to school have successfully completed their primary education.
Pastor Aloysius Ntege is the Senior Pastor of CSCC Uganda and oversees the CSCC churches and works in the nation. In addition, he is the founder and President of our three primary schools and the Director of Zion Ministerial Institute, Uganda. Pastor Aloysius has an infectious faith and has seen many miracles in and through his life. Together with his wife, Peace, he has seven children.
Pastor Henry Mukisa oversees the day to day operations of our Bible schools in the nation. He regularly taught in our Bible schools both in Uganda and in Rwanda. Pastor Henry also pastors our Cornerstone church in Entebbe and has recently begun running a primary school. He is married to Jaqueline and they have two young children.
