Since 1970, Marburg Mission partners with local churches in East Africa. From the very beginning, the aim has been to support and promote churches towards independence and to enable them having a positive impact on their society.
From 1990 to 2016, Marburg Mission had a special focus on training theology students at Bishop Barham University College (BBUC) in Kabale and we remain in partnership, supporting and helping each other.
During the last 10 years, there was a growing interest about world mission in African churches. In addition, former Bishop Barham University students from Congo and South Sudan requested College alumni and churches to send missionaries from Uganda.
In 2014, a network was established to support sending professionals in countries of need, to promote reconciliation and to strengthen education. With these efforts we plant hope, based on our Christian faith.
