Call to ministry:

On April 8, 1990, at age 23, Mishael made a personal commitment to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of his life. Since then, Mishael has lived as a testimony of God’s faithfulness. As a young man and full of the Holy Spirit, in December 1990, Mishael joined the youth group in his village church and in 1991 he was appointed as the youth leader; a position he held until 1994.

In 1995, Mishael recalls having an encounter with the Lord in a night vision. In the encounterMishael received the call to ministry. At that time, Mishael resisted God’s call to ministry for five years, something that led him to suffer for his disobedience.

In December 2000, Mishael surrendered his will to God’s call and he was appointed as a pastor in the Full Gospel Denomination of Uganda.

In 2013, Mishael felt the call to start an independent ministry called Christ Mission Ministry focusing on evangelism and church planting. In 2014 Christ Mission Ministry was birthed. Since then, the ministry of Christ Mission Churches has held many crusades and conferences mainly in rural areas. During the church crusades and conferences, many people have come to believe and confess Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Many people have been healed, families reconciled and communities changed. To that testimony, a number of churches have been planted to God’s glory!

Mishael is a public speaker and a teacher of the Word of God. He is the Senior Pastor of Naalya Christ Mission Church where he has developed a multicultural congregation but he keepsa spiritual eye and nurtures other Christ Mission Churches as their Bishop as well as continue doing the work of church planting.
