Favor International serves and trains war-torn victims into purpose-driven Christian missionaries, equipped to advance the Gospel in villages and mobilized to advance the Kingdom in nations. Entirely operated by indigenous leaders of Uganda and S. Sudan, Favor is a spiritual family of disciple makers turning the world upside down from occult and Islamist darkness to its proper alignment in Jesus’ love and lordship.
We multiply and accelerate leaders empowered by the Holy Spirit with discipleship to bring Biblical solutions to their own cultures. We see a movement shaking nations in response to God’s heart through prayer, love, forgiveness, worship, education, strong families, and unifying leaders across the government, religious, business, and other mountains of influence. The victims of war are becoming the instruments of revival.
Five Prongs to Sustainable, National Transformation
We are facilitating frontline moves of God one community at a time. In this work, sustainable national transformation occurs through five general means:
- Bringing portable theological training and aid to rural areas (Rural Evangelism and Empowerment Program).
- Discipling individuals and war-affected communities through radio, education, outreaches, trauma counseling, and leadership training.
- Facilitating physical church construction projects that reflect the “building up” of healthy congregations centered on the Word and prayer.
- Caring for orphans, widows, and prisoners, who God is using to raise future generations on Kingdom values.
- Setting up houses of prayer, prayer altars, and regional prayer events that provide the necessary fuel and reconciliation for national transformation.
Through fourteen years of ministry, we have learned that only a holistic, Christ-centered approach will bring true and lasting transformation to the life of a nation. In our work, ministry is the vehicle to establish relationships that build up every facet of the lives of individuals and communities.
Favor has four departments that make up the structure of the ministry:
Sustainability hinges on laying a foundation of Gospel truth from which to raise up national leaders to guide the ongoing process of restoration. Our life-on-life discipleship looks like us walking alongside each Ugandan widow, each South Sudanese gang member, each orphan from where they are and giving them the light of Jesus.
Teaching hygiene, reading and writing, or taking a trip to the market with them are just some of the intimate ways we use life to disciple. Much of the precious, transformative moments we share with our friends back in the US are after hours, days, weeks, and even months of investing into each person we meet.
