MCEC preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the community encouraging them to leave witchcraft and other beliefs but follow Christ. MCEC gives hope to hopeless young mothers and teenage girls by teaching them empowerment skills (baking, vegetable growing, computer training, counselling, and self-hygiene). Global Ministry Partners is a sister organization who have been so supportive spiritually, advisory and financially.

Godfrey Nkutu,
MCEC Board President

“In 2019, I visited Godfrey Nkutu to talk about his desire for a school. When I saw the girls that were meeting in Mayuge, I knew God was calling me to partner with Godfrey on his vision for a school. Mayuge Christian Education Centre (MCEC) was formed from this partnership. This partnership, now Global Ministry Partners in the U.S., is joining MCEC to raise the necessary funds and support for building the ministry of MCEC to fulfill the vision God has given us for the girls of Mayuge.

Gary Christman,
GMP President
