The Pursuers’ Network is an interdenominational Christian Organization, with a goal to mobilize and encourage believers to hunger, thirst, and seek for more of God, and put a demand on God’s manifest presence, so as to live a life that overwhelmingly and ultimately !ows out to impact society, through the grace of God.
Birth of the Network
This Network was born out of a great move of God during the 2001 FIRE CONFERENCE at the Eden Revival Church in Wandegeya. During the Conference organized by the Youth Ministry, by then under the Chairmanship of Charles Kiyaga, God spoke clearly and warned against the spirit of COMPLACENCY or APATHY, as one of the greatest evils against revival in the Church. The spirit of complacency drains believers of the hunger, thirst and passion for God. Believers consequently lose “appetite” for spiritual things. Hunger and appetite are a pre requisite for enjoyment of a good meal. Proverbs 27:7 reveals that to “the hungry soul, every bitter thing is sweet. ” The enemy Satan, employs all strategies to quench the hunger for more of God in the lives of believers. For the believer, God is to be enjoyed not endured, since “in Him we LIVE and MOVE and HAVE OUR BEING.” (ACTS 17:28). That means God is the very essence of our life, the air we breathe. Therefore, the Pursuers’ Network was born to steer that hunger and thirst for God among believers.
Our perception of Life
The Pursuers’ Network is an interdenominational Christian Organization, with a goal to mobilize and encourage believers to hunger, thirst, and seek for more of God, and put a demand on God’s manifest presence, so as to live a life that overwhelmingly and ultimately !ows out to impact society, through the grace of God. Life was meant to be lived in the manifest Presence of God. God is sought to be known. In knowing God, we discover our true selves and we then "nd true and eternal life, as Jesus put it in John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent”. Eternal life is not lived after death. This is the very life of the Father, the life he breathed into man in the garden of Eden. When man sinned, we lost that life, that God consciousness, and that manifest presence. It is the life of fellowship and communion with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is the highest level, the epitome of living where we breath the presence of God, and are constantly conscious of the Father’s providence
Should we seek God?
Much as God is Omnipresent, it is incumbent on man to seek Him so He can MANIFEST HIMSELF. The bedrock of this network is Psalms 63:8. As hungry and desperate souls are awakened by divine prompting to follow hard after Him who draws them, that invisible, unfailing right hand of our Father works behind the scenes to uphold them. He draws and He sustains. This is no easy road like Dick EastMan wrote; A. W. TOZER in his book “THE PURSUIT OF GOD”, shows a narrow path meandering through lonely abandoned lands. For those who God draws, it does become a hard following in order to stem the myriads of evils that will raise to drawn them into all forms of carnality. Thankfully, Ps. 63:8 encourages us that we are not in this alone. God’s right hand will UPHOLD. That brief background is the premise on which God began to build the Pursuers’ Network, from humble beginnings 20 years ago this year 2021. Monthly meetings were routinely organized and held at di#erent churches from 2001 till 2011. At the same time, an annual conference was held at Eden Revival Church from 2001 till 2007. Thereafter the annual conference was moved to SEGUKU PRAYER MOUNTAIN from 2007 to 2011. A radio program on Impact Radio was also broadcasted live weekly on Thursdays from 8:00 – 8:30am, between 2003 and 2014.
The Pursuers’ Network Home
In 2011, by God’s grace, the Pursuers’ Network moved into a temporary home in Mpererwe, Mugalu Zone. This was the Pursuers’ Home from 2011 till 2019 and all meetings including the annual conference were held there. The Pursuers’ Network Home God moved the heart of the Chairman of this Network, Dr. Kiyaga and in 2019 he obediently gave for the cause of the pursuit of God over 50 acres of hilly land on LWERE hill in BUNZA VILLAGE, KALAMBA SUBCOUNTY, BUTAMBALA DISTRICT. This hill henceforth becomes the permanent home for the Pursuers. Through Obadiah:17, God inspired us to give it the name; “ZION PURSUERS’ PRAYER MOUNTAIN” GOD’S DWELLING PLACE. It is on this ZION PURSUERS’ PRAYER MOUNTAIN, that all nations will come to seek God for personal intimacy. To know God and make Him known in all our spheres of in!uence. Currently, the KING DAVID ARENA that sits thousands already stands on the mountain. For these over 50 acres of virgin land, only God knows every single detail of what is to become a master piece, and a wonder in the land in our generation
