Festo Kivengere (1919 - 1988)

Listen to freely downloadable audio sermons by the speaker Festo Kivengere in mp3 format. was a Ugandan Anglican-Christian leader referred to by many as "the Billy Graham of Africa".[who?] (See endnote 4.) He played a huge role in a Christian revival in southwestern Uganda, but had to flee in 1973 to neighboring Kenya in fear for his life after speaking out against Idi Amin's tyrannical behavior.

Kivengere had been made bishop of Kigezi and was among several bishops summoned to Amin's quarters. Angry mobs called for their deaths. Eventually, all were permitted to leave but one, the archbishop, Janani Luwum. The others waited for Luwum to join them but he never came out. The next day the government announced that Luwum had died in an automobile accident. Four days later, despite government threats, 45,000 Ugandans gathered in the Anglican cathedral in Kampala for a memorial service honoring their fallen leader. Kivengere did not attend the service. Urged to flee by friends who said, "One dead bishop is enough," he and his wife that night drove as far as their vehicle could take them and with the help of local church people in the hills they walked until the next morning brought them to safety across the border in Rwanda.[1]

 The Triumph of God's Glory by Festo Kivengere

Topic: Glory Of God
Scripture(s): John 17:22  
Description: Festo Kivengere, a Ugandan Anglican bishop converted during the East African revival, speaks passionately about the glory of Jesus Christ and what that glory really means. "This is Jesus praying to His Father," says Kivengere, "almost lifting ordinary, simple people into an unspeakable, incredible kind of experience." He contrasts the formidable, unapproachable glory of the Old Testament through the experiences of Abraham, Moses and Isaiah with the glorious triumph of Christ's death and resurrection that has passed the glory (the radiant character of the living God) on to each child of God!
