Bible Teachers and Preachers
Education and/or Training
Peter Aloro is a teacher at Bishop Alison Theological College and works with Scripture Union in his country.
When did you trust Christ?
I confessed Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior in 2005 during a Scripture Union fellowship meeting. A friend of mine shared the gospel of Jesus with me and showed the love of God consistently to me. That motivated me to believe that Jesus died for my sins. From that moment I believed in Jesus and I have been following Jesus and trusting Him for eternal life.
What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?
I joined the church choir and become member of Scripture Union in my school, which taught me how to sing, study the Bible, and preach. I joined an intercessory prayer group, which developed me and gave me more zeal for church ministry. In 2014, I enrolled for a bachelor’s degree in Christian Community Development and Business (Theology). The greatest defining moment in my Christian walk was in 2016 when I attended the YLG2016 conference, which connected me to many mentors who kept building me up. Now I teach young church leaders and am a Christian entrepreneur practicing leadership management at my own firm after my first year of graduation. I was inspired by a workshop on business as mission during the YLG2016 conference in Indonesia.
Why do you want to attend the Forum?
I hope to connect with different leaders with a variety of experiences. When I return home, I will be able to organize a leadership forum in our context because of the skills I learn. I expect the Forum’s Christian leadership model to transform the nations of my region.
What is your ministry?
I am a teacher. I teach Christian Community Development and Children’s and Youth Ministry in Bishop Alison Theological College. I coordinate Scripture Union activities in a refugee camp. I established a restaurant business as a mission field for tourists. I am the director of programs for the Agape International organization in Uganda.
What are your past leadership roles?
I coordinated children’s and youth activities in my area. I was a leader in school student leadership. I served as a community worker and a child rights protection officer and worked with people living with HIV/AIDS.
Why should someone invest in your ministry?
I would like them to invest in me because I have the potential to pass on the knowledge I gain to younger leaders who may not be able to make it the Forum. Secondly, South Sudan needs a similar Forum. By investing in me, by the grace of God we can make history that will be remembered after the Forum because God has called me for His ministry. We can develop strategies to connect leaders who are very influential to review their approaches through Forums and dialogue where forgiveness, reconciliation, and lasting peace may be attained in South Sudan.
