Living Water is Raising Up Next Generation Leaders in the lives of Africa’s Youth & 20 Something’s. Here is how…
A Revolution means ‘a complete change in ways of thinking and behavior’. Living Water is bringing a Revolution to the youth of Uganda. Living Water is seeking out the youth of Uganda in schools, churches, and even on the streets. The mission is two-fold:
• Change the lives of youth by ministering the Word of God, teaching life and leadership skills, and giving them a vision for their future.
• Raising up leaders and mentors to multiply the reach of Living Water.
Matt and Angela Catinella have been serving in full-time ministry since 2001 and as full-time missionaries since 2004. Matt is from Michigan and Angela is from Florida, but spent her high school years as a missionary kid in Kenya. Matt and Angela met at Rhema Bible Training College and were married in 2002.
The Catinellas are passionate about reaching young people and developing next generation leaders. They served 3 years on staff at a thriving church in Michigan, then moved to South Africa in 2004, teaching AIDS and abstinence education and other relevant life skills to high school youth. Moving to Uganda in 2007, they pioneered a similar youth program in Uganda, reaching 10,000 students in local high schools. Then in 2011, in the heart of the capital city Kampala, the Catinellas pioneered a campus ministry, targeting the nation's influencers...university students.
Through their experiences of preaching, teaching, training, and worship leading, they have cultivated a gift for sharing the gospel and developing leaders around the world. Matt & Angela live in Kampala, Uganda with their 2 daughters, Alexis (9) & Moriah (7).
Raising Up Next Generation Leaders in Uganda
Did you know that Uganda has the youngest population in the world? 70% of the population is under the age of 30! Did you also know that Uganda has an AIDS infection rate of 1 in 5 and that 1 out of 10 are an orphan?
Upon reaching Uganda, we were daily meeting young people who had grown up an orphan, who had suffered from poverty and known great struggle. Our heart went out to these youth and God gave us a vision to raise up a different generation. A generation who will not repeat the past, but who will create a promising future of morality, hope, purity, leadership, family, and economic development. A generation who will serve the Lord. We are accomplishing this through our weekly youth fellowships, campus outreach, one-on-one mentorship and bible training classes.
This ministry relies 100% on the support of financial partners. We are not able to work, because all our time is given to the community for free. The majority of people receiving our services are unable to pay as most of them live on less than one dollar a day.
We can’t do it alone! We need your help to support the youth in Uganda. INVEST today in changing a youth’s life.
