Dr Richmond Wandera is the pastor of New Life Baptist Church (NLBC), located in the Kireka community. Richmond grew up in Kampala city and joined a Compassion International project at a local church at the age of 8 after his family fell on hard times. Because of the opportunities provided through Compassion International, Richmond attended college at Uganda Christian University where he obtained his degree in Accounting. He then went on to attend Moody Graduate School and most recently earned his Ph.D. in Philosophy of Leadership from Lancaster Bible College and Capital Seminary.
Richmond’s vision for the future and passion for others is evident in all that he does. He, along with NLBC’s Board of Elders, desire to impact the Kireka community for the Lord, one person at a time. Through their work, lives are being changed by Jesus Christ and Kireka is learning there is a God who cares about them.
