Their Ministry Focus
In partnership with the local Church of God, Tim and Colleen develop projects and communities primarily in Uganda, but also in Rwanda, Congo (DR), and South Sudan. They continue to facilitate the ministry of TAPP (Tumaini AIDS Prevention Program). And they manage church and school building programs and sponsorship programs, often in partnership with Kinderhilfswerk and Children of Promise.
The Stevensons are passionate about the work of the Kingdom in East Africa, connecting people and organizations in ministry. When they first began serving in Uganda, their assignment was to build and develop a single educational institution. Since then, they have developed more than 200 Church of God schools in Uganda, as well as others in neighboring countries, tied to local congregations.
They connect children in sponsorship programs, either within the schools or in personal networking through programs such as Children of Promise (United States), Furaha (Canada), Kinderhilfswerk (Germany), or Compassion International and Samaritan’s Purse. They also developed the TAPP ministry to help the church meet the economic and spiritual needs of women and children suffering from AIDS
Tim and Colleen, both missionary kids, came to Africa as young children and have been part of the continent since the 1950s and 1960s respectively. They are parents to four children, who also enjoyed the beautiful continent and the hospitality of its people, and an expanding set of grandchildren.
With years of experience, a passion for the work of God and the African continent, Tim and Colleen are an example of what happens in the church and in local communities when God connects local passion in cross-cultural ministry.
