One Kampala’s most generous men and lead pastor of the Uganda Christian Centre Church (UCC) Bishop Stephen Senfuma better known as Innerman has gone to be with the lord.
Senfuma died at Nakasero Hospital at around 5:00AM on Saturday morning after losing a long-time battle to Covid 19, a battle he has fought for weeks.
Officials at his Kikoni based church confirmed the Bishop’s death although very few details were divulged.
They revealed that he had earlier on Tuesday June 7th been admitted Platinum Hospital in Kampala after he got breathing competitions. He would later be moved to Nakasero Hospital after the condition escalated.
Upon admission at Nakasero, officials reveal, his condition improved and they were hopeful he’d make full recovery but it would later worsen leading to his death.
Bishop Senfuma is the Vision bearer of Inner-Man Ministries which includes United Christian Centre (UCC). He is also founder of Innerman Broadcasting Company, which seeks to provide Christ-Centered radio programming.
While his preaching and teachings have had a profound influence on Christians for over 27 years, it is his personal life that is even more inspiring having testified about his journey from drug abuse, suicidal tendencies to preaching at the gospel of Jesus Christ across the globe.
The deceased spearheaded a Child Support Ministry that addresses the plight of vulnerable children who are situated in Kasubi and surrounding areas.
Having grown up in a family of twenty-three siblings, there was never enough food, clothing, school fees and other essentials. Since he was a child, his desire was to study and become a person who would mentor others.
But this dream was painfully destroyed when, eventually he could no longer earn enough money out of dancing at weddings and causal labor to pay his school fees. Since then, he has carried this desire is to see that every child gets an education.
The Innerman ministry has schools; Inner man pre and primary school in Kasubi and Zengebe. They recently started Stevour Christian High School, an institution to instill Christian values while educating children to be the future of Uganda.
With his wife Favour Senfuma, he also partnered with Compassion International in Omuntu w’Omunda Child Development Centre, a project that helps more than 450 needy children and caretakers.
