Who is Pastor Aaron Mutebi?
Pastor Aaron Mutebi came to know the Lord as his personal savior and Lord on 16th August 1986. The same year he joined a local Bible school in the city of Kampala, Uganda, to learn more about God and the Bible.
His childhood was mired in hardships in that he sold news papers like Munno, Taifa Empya, Weekly Topic, Munnansi, Ngabo, Voice of Uganda and magazines like Musizi to survive.
In two years, he had made friends with many taxi drivers and conductors. He then decided to try his hand at being a taxi tout, to supplement his newspaper business income.
According to the Daily Monitor, Mutebi got to know many people who were working in Kikuubo. After a fortnight, he got space and opened a shop there. He sold cigarettes, sugar, Kimbo, powdered milk, salt, and margarine.
Then came the 1984 to 1986 insurgency which saw much of their merchandise looted and majority of the businessmen ran bankrupt.
One morning on August 16, 1986, Mutebi decided to attend one gospel crusade. He did more than listen to the music and decided to get saved.
He joined the lunch hour fellowship in Kikuubo to stick to his new values. Around the same time, he felt led to serve God.
He then joined Bible College at Namirembe Christian Fellowship. During his second year, the then pastor asked him, to go to Entebbe and lead the Christian fellowship which had not been doing well.
It was a small family of about five adults and a few children. They used to meet at a house that is now present day Entebbe Leisure Park. The fellowship grew bigger, they had to look for space and construct a small papyrus structure that evolved into Entebbe Miracle Centre Cathedral.
