BIOGRAPHY OF PASTOR ROBERT KAYANJA
Robert Kayanja was called at the age of 17 and launched into ministry at the age of 22. Now as the Senior Pastor of Kampala’s 10,500 seat Miracle Centre Cathedral, he is also the founder of the Miracle Centre Churches. He was born in Masooli, a village in central Uganda. This was the situation in many other parts of the country. People lived with no hope, with disease and the fear of death, ‘What good could come out of Masooli?’, one would say.
More to this, Robert Kayanja was a miracle baby; a life and death decision had to be made as to whether to save him or his mother, but God came through for him just on time. As though this was not enough, he was born with a stutter. ‘How could God possibly use a boy who grew up stuttering after having survived a grave decision to deny him life?' Well, God did just that! Launching out into a world that hardly believes whether God still performs miracles, Pastor Robert started the Miracle Centre then, a papyrus reed structure, together with a few other young ministers having a ‘congregation’ of just one. Miracle upon miracle, the church has grown by leaps and bounds. Today Pastor Robert also is overseer of the Miracle Bible College, the Never Again Children’s project and the Kapeeka orphanage (both children’s outreaches), plus Daily Miracle Life Television programmes on Channel 44 and Daystar Television networks.
Obeying the great commission, he travels round the globe and has been to over 54 nations spreading the good news of gospel of Jesus Christ. Also of significance are the book publications, magazines, newsletters/ e-letters(sent all around the globe), another avenue through which souls have been touched and changed.
He is one of the most acclaimed gospel preachers who have been hosted on some of the most widely viewed Christian television networks. Upon his heart God, has placed a message; “Minister Love in a hurting world”, a way of bringing the lost souls back to Him through miracles, signs and wonders.
‘'Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a dear and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty ground bubbling springs. In the haunts where the jackals lay, grass and reeds and papyrus will grow and the highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness… Isaiah 35:5-8.
Pastor Robert resides in Kampala-Uganda with his lovely wife Jessica, their son Robert Kayanja Junior and twin daughters Kirstein and Christiana
