Rev. Charles Bameka has led Lutheran Hour Ministries in Uganda since 2003. In that time, he has played an important role in the growth of the ministry, as well as the Lutheran Church of Uganda. So, it was with both joy and sadness that Rev. Bameka announced his resignation from his position as Director for Lutheran Hour Ministries in Uganda, effective January 15th, 2011.
Rev. Bameka, who had also been serving as Vice President of the Lutheran Church Mission in Uganda, will continue in that capacity and devote more time into helping with the growth of the Lutheran Church in Uganda. His main role will be to lead continued training and development of new pastors and vicars, and he may receive a call to help plant and shepherd a second church in the city of Kampala.
Rev. Bameka joined Lutheran Hour Ministries—Uganda in 1996, where he served in several positions before becoming Director in 2003. He earned diplomas in business administration and communications before studying theology at the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary in Ghana, from which he graduated in 2001. He will take a couple of months to enjoy some time with his wife, Eve, and their young son.
Ms. Rebecca Kyomuhendo will assume the responsibilities of manager at LHM—Uganda following Charles’ resignation.
