PASTOR ROBERT KAYANJA CELEBRATES 61 YEARS
The ministry started from the humble beginnings of the impoverished village, Masooli, located in central Uganda. People would say, ‘What good could come out of Masooli?’ Who would have dreamed that a global ministry could have been birthed from a small village? God’s ways are higher than our ways.
Nothing came easy for Pastor Robert Kayanja. His mother’s pregnancy was very difficult and a truly life and death decision had to be made to save his life. The miraculous power of God came through for him and his mother just in time. Life was granted to this miracle baby but he was born with a stutter. Again, who would have thought that a boy who stutters would one-day minister to those with no hope, living with the threat of disease and the fear of death, God had a powerful plan for this offspring from the village of Masooli.
Pastor Robert Kayanja grew in stature and wisdom. Through a truly divine encounter with Jesus Christ at the age of 17, he was called into ministry. At age 22 he was launched into ministry. Many people would consider his first days in ministry very humble as well. The Miracle Centre was founded and services were held in a papyrus reed structure, along with a few other young ministers. Launching out into a world that hardly believes that God still performs miracles, Pastor Robert has climbed many mountains. Miracle upon miracle, the church has grown into an international ministry. As a result, Pastor Robert has ministered in more than 80 nations of the world while holding crusades and seminars for up to 200,000 people nightly.
As God’s people hungered and thirst for more of God, there was a need for bigger facilities to be built. Miracle Centre Cathedral is now a debt-free building with a 10,500 seating capacity. There are over 5,000 branches across Uganda.
