Eastern Congo is a place of extreme challenges, plagued by violence, disease, and poverty. It is also a place of beauty, with vibrant and resilient people. From this context, men and women came together to  pursue a vision of transformation by founding Congo Initiative. They identified poor leadership as an underlying cause of many problems, and founded a university dedicated to the formative development of Christ-centered Congolese leaders to carry out societal renewal.
This university, the Christian Biligual University of Congo (UCBC), is a place where local and international people come together to “be transformed to transform”, as personal renewal leads to renewal in schools, workplaces, families, and government. As part of their engineering program, I have been teaching as a professor of computer science, as well as mentoring and developing the curriculum.
I am now finishing up my commitment and am transitioning back to the US.

  • My transitioning back to the United States, including my upcoming marriage and new job.
  • My colleagues at UCBC as they search for new staff for the engineering program.
  • Peace and stability in this time of intense conflict, violence, and displacement in eastern Congo.
