Mitchell lives in Mbalwa, Uganda with his wife Jemima, 4 daughters, 5 foster boys, and 4 foster girls. Mitchell was born in Mangira, Uganda to unmarried parents and raised by his single mother. His mother was a strict disciplinarian and insisted that Mitchell and his siblings go to church each week. At 12 years old, on August 23, 1988, Mitchell asked Jesus into his life. Four years later his mother passed away leaving Mitchell behind to care for his younger siblings.
At 16 Mitchell had to work odd jobs to cover his and his younger sister’s tuition costs. Mitchell completed his secondary (high) school education but was unable to attend college to fulfill his dream of becoming an architect.
A year later Mitchell was called to ministry and in 1999 he was ordained for pastoral service. He since has gone on to do many things for the Kingdom and for his country: Children’s Outreach Ministry, Child Evangelism Fellowship, Uganda and Kenya Sports Outreach Ministry, Uganda Village Care Initiatives, Village Care International and he has served on several boards; Canaan Children Transit Center Board Chair, Rock Foundation and Hosannah Kings School Board Chair, Children at Risk Action Network Vice Chair and Chair, Sports Outreach Ministry Secretary, Makindye East Pastors Initiative and NFBPC Makindye District Deputy Overseer, Patmos Revelation Ministries Vice Chair, and is a board member of the Child Evangelism Fellowship of Uganda.
After years of being out of school, Mitchell completed a degree in Organizational Management and a degree in Christian Ministries. He holds a Harvard University’s Global Mental Health Masters HPRT. It was Mitchell’s tenacity and excitement for learning that pushed him to continue to improve himself.
