Ugandan minister to lead services at Friendship

Pastor Bakashaba
Friendship Baptist Church in Hartfield is pleased to welcome back to the area Pastor Johnson Bakashaba from Kabale, Uganda, East Africa.

Pastor Bakashaba will preach at Friendship Church this Sunday, November 22, at the 10 a.m. Celebration Service and again at special revival services beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, November 22, and continuing each night at 7 p.m. through Tuesday, November 24.

Pastor Bakashaba founded Revival Tabernacle Ministries in 1997. It has grown to 200 members. He has been a pastor for 20 years. His church ministers to the poor and hurting in Kabale, Uganda, and has established 50 churches in western Uganda.

Pastor Bakashaba has a heart for the many orphans in his community. He runs an orphanage with 16 children and has even adopted five teenage orphans in addition to the four children he and his wife Margaret have of their own. He also runs a child sponsorship program with 78 children and a scholarship program for 10 students in high school and the university. Pastor Bakashaba believes that educating children will equip them to be better future leaders and will in turn transform their communities.

“Pastor Bakashaba is a delightful person and an outstanding evangelist who has preached in a number of churches throughout the United States, including Friendship Church, and in foreign countries,” said a church spokesperson. “He desires to see revival and a genuine hunger for God return to the universal Christian Church as it has in the church in Uganda. Signs and wonders that were common in the early first-century church are not uncommon whenever Pastor Bakashaba preaches and ministers. You will not want to miss hearing this anointed man of God.”

Walt McKibbon, pastor of Friendship Church, met Pastor Bakashaba two years ago when he went to Uganda to participate in an evangelistic crusade and pastors’ conference in Kabale. He was impressed by Pastor Bakashaba’s humility, his skill as an interpreter, and his passion for the things of God. Last year he heard Pastor Bakashaba preach for the first time at Friendship Church.

Pastor Bakashaba will be staying with Pastor McKibbon for five or six days. There will be a home meeting at his house on Friday, November 20, at 7 p.m. It is open to anyone who would like to come. “If you would like to meet Pastor Johnson, invite him to your church, mission organization, or your home,” said Pastor McKibbon.

For more information, contact McKibbon at 693-5503 or 804-832-2836.
