Training Future Congolese Engineers


Eastern Congo is a place of incredible natural beauty and vibrant people, but where corruption and poor insitutions have led to extreme poverty and injustice. Out of this context a university was founded; dedicated to the formative development of Congolese leaders.

This university, the Christian Biligual University of Congo (UCBC), is a place where local and international people come together to “be transformed to transform”, as personal renewal leads to renewal in schools, workplaces, families, and government.

As part of creating an exceptional engineering program, they have invited me to come and be a professor of computer science; to use my gifts in teaching, mentoring, and curriculum development.

I am fully reliant on donations and monthly support to cover living costs, insurance, transportation, and teaching expenses. If you would like to support me, you can do so at

Primary Roles:

  • Teaching courses to develop professionals with strong engineering skills.
  • Assisting the Applied Sciences program with curriculum development.
  • Building strong mentoring relationships with UCBC students.
  • Helping students to discover ways to bring technological solutions to local challenges.


Congo Initiative

Congo Initiative (CI) is Congolese organization dedicated to addressing systemic issues in the country by developing people into strong, ethical leaders who will transform Congo into a place where peace and justic flourish. This is exemplified in the central theme:
Being transformed to transform.


Université Chrétienne Bilingue du Congo
CI founded UCBC in 2007 to be a university that develops men and women into future leaders of Congo who can respond to its unique challenges with passion and integrity. I am teaching in their Applied Sciences Program, which offers both Computer and Electromechanical Engineering.

United World Mission

UWM is a missions sending agency that I am parterning with that provides support and training for cross-cultural missions. United World Mission has a vision of equipping leaders, engaging in holisitic ministry, and partnering with local organizations.
