Kingdom View Fellowship and Guest House

About the Name

Kingdom View has a dual meaning.  It describes an inviting vantage point over an expansive, verdant landscape.  It also points to the Kingdom of God’s guide to abundant living taught by Jesus of being accepted, secure and significant rather than the unfulfilling worldly view of success.
The vision of Kingdom View provides Christians with a haven to refresh and grow in their faith. This equips them to be light in a culture scarred by corruption and witchcraft.

Why Uganda?

The Rock Outreach leadership has ministered in Uganda since 2003 through mercy homes, scholarships, construction projects and teaching.  In 2006 we launched a scholarship discipleship ministry serving Uganda Christian University students.  UCU’s vision is “A Centre of Excellence in the Heart of Africa” and its focus is on integrating faith into every aspect of life.  This creates synergy between the two organizations.  Locating the Kingdom View near the university provides easy access to students, faculty, graduates, pastors and other professionals.   The atmosphere stimulates the growth of impactful disciples on and off campus.
Complementary Approach

Kingdom View complements and strengthens UCU programs, as well as those of other ministries and churches.  Emphasis is on practical Bible application, development of life problem solving skills and mentoring.  Holistic teaching includes Freedom and Identity in Jesus; Doing Business God’s Way; God’s Plan for Men, Women and Marriage; and Godly Accountability for Ministries.  The guest house will host mission teams, visiting teachers and African pastors and their spouses for “marriage refresher” weekends.

Imagine a two-story house on a hill overlooking Mukono in the distance.  The secure compound is a pleasant walk from the UCU foot path that connects by road to this plot of land. On the lower level is a covered entry with facilities for visitors including a Christian library, kitchen for cooking classes, sitting room accommodating 20 people for discussions and casual classes, a dining room to accommodate 20 people opening onto a covered porch with additional seating for larger groups, two bathrooms and covered porch areas for conversations with 2-4 people.  The upper level is designed with 8 self-contained guest rooms and 2 suites with sitting rooms and breakfast bars for longer term visitors.  All rooms would open to a wide covered porch designed for small group studies and conversation for guests. The central sitting room would have a high ceiling to the second floor for an air of spaciousness.  On the grounds are four self-contained thatched-roofed African bandas complete with covered porches.

The investment for the land, building and furnishings will be significant but will serve generations of disciples to come. We are proceeding toward an estimate as we pursue available land and await an architectural schematic of the initial plan.
