Exciting news from our friend Kennedy, who has been a leader at New City Church and for H3 for years:
After completing my Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC) at Africa Reformation Theological Seminary (ARTS) I embarked on applying for a Doctor of Ministries degree (Biblical Counseling) at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (RPTS) in Pittsburgh. After the rigorous process, I was successfully admitted and planning to start school in August 2020.
This program is particularly exciting to me because I will not have to stay long term in the USA – I will only have to travel once every year, have one month concentrated courses and return to Uganda to do my coursework assignments. I am also thrilled about this opportunity because on completion, I will be a certified Biblical counselor, helping with counseling God’s people here in Uganda, and Africa as opportunity may arise. Secondly, I will be able to train other counselors both here at ARTS and in other formal and informal settings. It is important to note that trained biblical counselors are in short supply in Uganda and Africa as whole, which exposes our Christians to secular psychiatrist and false ‘prophets’ who in most cases do more harm than good.
H3 is pleased to support Kennedy in this endeavor and we'll be updating you on his progress going into the fall. Here is a photo of him with his wife Vicky, his son Jesse and daughter Katelyn.
