Missionary: Tim & Jenessa Cypher
The Cypher’s are one of our newest missionaries, and have recently moved to Gulu, Uganda with their young son Silas. Uganda is a country alive with passion for Christ but lacking in discipleship. The Christian community has an emphasis on evangelism, but little emphasis on how to live for Christ and to grow spiritually. In Tim’s words, “I once heard a pastor in Uganda quote the Great Commission to ‘go and make converts‘ instead of disciples. This to me showed one of the major struggles in Uganda.”
The Cypher’s help disciple pastors and church leaders toward a deeper relationship with God so that they can lead their flock to do the same. The desire for a deeper walk with God is absolutely there, and the couple is passionate about coming alongside leaders to show them what discipleship looks like. The Cypher’s are learning the language of Acholi by full immersion and request your prayers as they minister to the people of Northern Uganda.
