He grew up from Lira District and came to Gulu in 2009 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in business administration in Gulu University. During his days in the University, he discovered the call of God after an encounter with the Lord while for Campus Christian mission and that ignited his passion to win souls and teach the word.
While finalizing with the University, he heard the Lord ask him not to go back to Lira but stay in Gulu until he receives another word. While in Gulu, in May 2012 the Lord directed him to join a Pentecostal church for grooming into the work of the ministry.
