Pastor Richard Nkunze
Richard is married to Grace and they have been blessed with a son, Caleb, and a daughter, Esther, both of whom are serving the Lord
Richard first accompanied Rev. Robert Baker (Founder) on a mission trip in 1997 and from that time he has become a valued member of the team.
Richard was one of many students that, with the help of Gospellife International, was able to study at Carmel Bible College, Bristol, UK from 2002 to 2004, completing a two year diploma course.
On returning to Uganda, he continued to serve in his local church where he holds a pastoral position alongside his role as Missions Director with Gospellife International.
Richard is now planning for Gospellife International to hold Bible studies in rural villages, working with local pastors to make an impact in their communities.
Richard is a competent worship leader, keyboard and bass player, and he is also a trumpeter!
Elizabeth (Eva) Kyalisiima
Eva is another long standing member of the team.
Like Richard, Eva first accompanied Rev. Robert Baker on a mission in 1997 and has been a faithful servant to the ministry from that time.
Eva has extensive experience in organising missions, making her an invaluable member of the team. Not only does she have a superb ability to organise the missions programme for Gospellife International, but her knowledge and capability to guide the ministry in its aid and development programme in East Africa has been remarkable.
Eva serves in her local church as a worship leader and is an active intercessory prayer leader. She frequently utilises these gifts on the mission field, as well as her marvellous talent to interpret seamlessly.
