Mission Statement

We believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. We believe Jesus Christ, the Son of God came to the earth as fully human and fully God, and sacrificed Himself by the death of the cross, and was raised from the dead three days later.


Bringing hope to the women and children of Uganda

Mavuno in Swahili means, "the harvest," and our mission is to provide a loving and safe environment for the women and children of Tororo, Uganda. Mavuno Ministries is passionate about serving the less fortunate through many different outlets such as schooling, water filters, jewelry, and more. First founded in 2009, we now sponsor over 70 students in Mavuno School, providing a Christ-centered free education. Our dream and vision is to raise the funds to build a safe and secure compound for the children of Tororo who do not have a place to call home.

Missionary & Co-Director of the Women's Ministry

Bobbi and her husband, Bob Brown, went to Uganda in 2004 with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Brown's mission during that time was to plant churches through evangelism and discipleship. After 3 years of church planting, God led them to a new vision. Exactly two years to the day of Bob’s burial, Bobbi made reservations for a one way ticket to Tororo, Uganda. She has resided there ever since.
