Who is Bishop Nina?
Venerable Nina was born on 29th November 1968 in Ayer-Tekidi Village, Kole District. He holds a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Uganda Christian University and has received additional training in financial management from CORAT-Africa in Nairobi.
Venerable Nina was born again on 15th September 1985 during a service in which the preacher was preaching on Matthew 7.13:
“Go in through the narrow gate because the gate to hell is wide and the road that leads to it is easy and there are many who travel through it.”
The preacher explained that salvation is like the ant who packs too much on his back; he can’t crawl back into his small hole and dies outside of it. He realized then that the narrow way to salvation was only through Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life. (John 10.10)
Venerable Julius Ceaser Nina is currently serving as the Archdeacon of Kiryandongo Archdeaconry in Masindi-Kitara Diocese.
Prior to this position, he served as Diocesan Secretary and Diocesan Treasurer of Masindi-Kitara Diocese, and also as Diocesan Treasurer and Diocesan Education Secretary of Bunyoro-Kitara Diocese.
