History of Village Educational Centre Ltd.

The newest developments of New Life Church

In 2014 we took the NLC ministry a step further in legally registering with a Ugandan Certificate of Incorporation. Thus our official title became Village Educational Centre Limited (Ltd.). Murals in early church were painted by Emilee Bailey as her high school senior project, from Washington State, USA.

 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
