Award winning Ugandan artist Maurice Kirya is set to headline the launch of Mavuno Kampala’s Market Place programme which will take place on Sunday 3rd June at the Kampala Parents School.
Speaking ahead of the launch, the Lead Pastor for Mavuno Kampala Pastor Waweru Njenga said that it was a pleasure to have Maurice Kirya kick off the Market Place programme, the newest change experience programs that Mavuno provides.
“The Market Place Programme is a discipleship experience based on the book of Daniel. With this program we aim at teaching Christians how to influence in their places of work – just like David did –by teaching them how to handle work place issues such as politics, integrity, corruption, competition and sexual harassment, among other many issues. Our main aim as a church is to consistently turn ordinary people into fearless influencers of society”, said Pastor Waweru, also famously known as ‘Pastor Wa’.
Mavuno Kampala is well known for its change experience programs based on Christian principles. Some of these include SIMAMA, OMBI, HATUA, LEA and NDOA. In 2015 NDOA, a project that focuses on strengthening marriage and family life, scooped the Church Project of the Year Award in the Heaven Inspired Triumph (HITS) gospel awards.
The Market Place programme will go on for 8 weeks. The launch on Sunday 3rd June will start at 10am and will be hosted by Isaac Rucci, the legendary Limit-X singer, and Susan Nsibirwa, head of marketing and communication at Vision Group and also Chairman – Uganda Media Owners Association. Isaac and Susan are both members of Mavuno Kampala.
Assistant Lead Pastor of Mavuno Kampala, Pastor Mike Onen, recognized the impact of the multiple award winning artist on the society and reason for his presence at the launch:
“Maurice has been singing professionally for over ten years now and he has impacted the airwaves since he released his maiden album in late 2009. Having toured over 35 countries and 40 cities across Africa, Europe and America and also having featured on BBC, CNN, Voice of America and RFI, we want to learn how Christians can influence in our various industries and thrive; we therefore look forward to hearing from him on Sunday” said Pastor Mike Onen.
Maurice Kirya holds multiple accolades from E-World Music Awards (LA), Museke Music Awards (New York), KORA Award, KISIMA Awards (Kenya), PAM awards (Uganda). He continues to be an inspiration and mentor to many young Ugandan and African musicians.
