In July, One Horizon co-sponsored Amahoro Africa’s first “Theological Intensive,” intended to introduce African church leaders to cutting edge thinking and practice from some of the world’s leading theologians. The intensive was hosted in Entebbe, Uganda and led by Dr. Emmanuel Katongole, a Ugandan priest and professor of theology at Duke University. Held at Dr. Katongole’s guest house on the banks of Lake Victoria, the intensive welcomed twenty leaders from Congo, South Africa, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda and the United States.
Amahoro Africa is a growing indigenous movement focused upon facilitating “holistic transformation by encouraging, resourcing and connecting emerging African leaders who are committed to the tangible manifestation of justice, mercy and goodness in their local context.” One Horizon is proud to be a sponsor of the work of Amahoro and the ecumenical spirit that animates this work.
