About Favor

What is Favor?

Favor International is a movement serving and training national leaders in East African war zones to sustainably change their communities with the power of the Gospel.

Currently working in northern Uganda and South Sudan, Favor sees whole communities and nations transformed by the Gospel being applied to every part of life, from health to education to economic empowerment – all rooted in transformation of the heart. Transformed, national leaders holistically fit Biblical solutions to local needs and see life-changing results for whole villages and regions.

Our international partnerships serve, train, and empower nationals to impact their local communities in the context of God-sustained movements. We pray, live sacrificially, and do whatever it takes to align our lives with God’s purposes and methods for particular people groups in particular lands and contexts.

Victims of War Becoming Instruments of Revival

After 20 years of ministry, Favor still brings the Gospel with discipleship in the midst of war to the lost and unreached.

Through national leadership, tribes and denominations unify. From trauma counseling to church planting, we have been given the privilege of ministering to thousands over the years. We give thanks to the Lord and our financial supporters that have made this possible.

We provide all services at no cost to those desperate for the life-transforming power of the Gospel, in places where many others flee or avoid.



Because Christ’s love compels us, we
pursue this version that requires no
less than God’s favor for our next step.

Background

Favor is an organization grounded in Uganda and South Sudan that first began in Uganda in 2004 in response to God’s heart for northern Uganda during the most horrific war in African history.

The vision was birthed by corporate prayer in 2002 by Ugandans and founder Carole Ward in the midst of civil war to see God’s transformation of leaders and the region.

Through God’s miraculous proliferation of the Gospel, discipleship, and mobilized prayer movements, the previously unconquerable child-soldier armies of Joseph Kony and the LRA were conquered. It led to an uneasy peace by 2006, but God really dug in to uproot the kingdom of evil. So much so that Kony’s right-hand general, who converted to Christianity and attended Favor’s Bible school, credited one of Favor’s specific prayer gatherings for ending the war.

Along with other nameless, faceless heroes of the faith whose prevailing prayers ended the crisis, Favor immediately went to work bringing the Gospel with discipleship, empowerment, training, and mobilization to every corner of northern Uganda.

Mission and Vision

Favor facilitates moves of God one community at a time, multiplying and accelerating national leaders in front line battlegrounds to align their communities with the purposes of God in every aspect of life. Through serving and training national leaders, we partner with Jesus in anything He is presently doing.

Our vision is to see the Kingdom of God established and sustained in every sphere of the darkest places on Earth. In religion, family, education, government, media, business, and the arts, God is bringing revival to all levels of society among war-affected communities as desperate people reach for the Hope of the Gospel.

Favor’s mission is to serve and train national leaders of all ages to transform their societies with the principles and power of the Gospel. We are national leaders multiplying leaders on the front lines, and we are a support network around the world holding the ropes so that all whom God calls can go to hell and back to “rescue those being led away to death.” We serve and train national leader of all ages, to transform their societies with the principles and power of the Gospel.

Foundational Principles

Four pillars of Favor's ministry structure: Spiritual Strategic plan, Legal NGO, Administration, and Financial Development Plan.
  • Relationship - All partnering and ministry is built on this foundation.
  • Research - It's important to us to sow where the need is greatest. Before determining where to expand the ministry, we make sure to pray and research about the possibilities.
  • Receipts - Every receipt is kept for each purchase made or service paid for. The receipts are filed with accurate book keeping in the ministry office and then scanned and e-mailed back to the partner, or brought in for accountability in other cases.
  • Records - All purchases or services relating to the designated money are recorded accurately with names of recipients, partners, use of money, dates, locations, and projects or people for whom the money was intended. These records are also made available to any partners and networking ministries affiliated with that area of offering or support.
  • Reports - These reports are given back to networking ministries and supporters on a regular basis. The reports include acknowledgements of the gifts or support, and thank you notes from the Favor of God Ministry office as well as the recipients of the money. That way ongoing relationships with the recipients is encouraged. This is true partnering with accountability! (John 4:36.)
  • Results - Results of seeds sown and planted are constantly reviewed and re-evaluated. Along with you, we want to see seed sown on fertile ground. If results of money spent are not evaluated on a regular basis, immense waste can take place in the Kingdom of God! These results and reports will continue to come back to partners for months after gifts or sponsorship is started.
