On Saturday, May 14, Rev. Ben Tumuheirwe became “Doctor Ben” when he was awarded a Doctor of Ministry degree at Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. The culmination of seven years of work, this degree has brought joy to Ben’s family, the staff of Juna Amagara and all the kids in the program. A special congratulations came from Rev.
Canon Benjamin Twinamaani as a representative of senior clergy for the Church of Uganda. Dr. Ben’s dissertation entitled: “Motivating and Equipping Mission Trip Participants in Joyful Evangelism” was undertaken with input, research and surveys taken from the many mission teams that have visited Uganda. At a celebration following graduation, Ben thanked the many people who participated in that research, but also the Boards of Directors for Juna Amagara, all the people who have prayed for the ministry, and most of all, his family for supporting him during the academic process. Ben’s wife Lilian was awarded the “Ph.T” degree in special recognition for “putting him through.” Ben’s reaction to all of this? “To God Be The Glory; Great Things He Has done.”
