ABOUT OUR MOVEMENT
WHAT DO WE STAND FOR?
Fellowship of Christian Unions (FOCUS) Uganda is an evangelical interdenominational Christian organization committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ on university and college campuses in Uganda; nurturing students to grow and become effective witnesses of Christ and leaders in the church and society, through Evangelism (communication of the gospel message through life and deed), Discipleship (training in key spiritual disciplines to be able to live the way God wants us to live) and Compassionate Empathy (sharing and understanding the feelings of others to trigger positive social action.
FOCUS has its genesis from the Christian Union at Makerere University formed in 1962 and the Christian Union at National Teachers’ College Kyambogo formed in 1972. FOCUS was affiliated to the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) in 1979 and was part of the Pan African Fellowship of Evangelical Students prior to that. The Christian Union is our point of contact in any college or university. It is a student-led group of Christian students from different denominations united around the gospel in the work of evangelism and discipleship.
