ABOUT SOS Ministries


Sufficiency of Scripture (SOS) Ministries exists to strengthen lives and communities through Christ, and we believe that the most enduring avenue for personal and collective strength comes through bringing Scripture to life in Christ’s church.

Our commitment is to establishing and shoring up the spiritual and physical walls of His Church throughout East Africa. The heart of our ministry’s work lies in the Ugandan community of Kubamitwe, where God is changing and shaping lives at every turn.

Our hand in the change:

  • Legacy Christian Academy, a K-12 community school offering a safer, higher-quality education than government schools, but at no additional cost to students and families.
  • Shepherds Training College, where men with a desire to pastor are nurtured and trained (along with their families) to lead and spread the truth of the Gospel of Christ the King.
  • The establishment of the Community Bible Church of Kubamitwe, a center for discipleship and hope that has grown from a congregation of 60 to over 400 people since its beginnings.
  • Community Outreach in Kubamitwe, where we serve the disabled in the Kubamitwe community, in partnership with Joni and Friends.
  • Host fellowship and recreation opportunities for locals of all ages.
  • Deliver educational workshops, from academics to farming techniques.
  • East Africa Church strengthening. It’s our sincere hope to see Christ reigning as King in the lives of East African people, both in Kubamitwe and abroad. By training pastors and establishing the Community Bible Church of Kubamitwe as His exemplary means of spiritual growth and development, we will effectively, lovingly and Biblically strengthen churches.

“Ever since I went to Uganda in the summer of 1995, I have had a deep inescapable love for the people of Uganda.”
Shannon Hurley, Founder of SOS Ministries

SOS Uganda Board of Directors

While our founder, Dr. Shannon Hurley, is not native to Uganda, the remaining SOS Leadership team is comprised almost exclusively of Uganda nationals. The Board of Directors was carefully selected to provide accountability and guidance for SOS operations, led by men of great integrity and respect within the Uganda Christian evangelical community. The SOS senior staff are all Uganda nationals, with a continued emphasis to train and raise up leaders among the local village and Church in Uganda.
