Born in a village called Tuguli, at a tender age of 10, he a took a long journey on foot to South Sudan. The journey took 3 months and he reached a town called Torrit, where he stayed for 6 months. The second civil war was still raging on and he escaped to Uganda and stayed at a refugee camp for 12 years before returning home in 2004. It wasn't his dream to be a teacher but he became one by default and he came to realize that there was dire need for teachers. He loved sciences and he started teaching a local primary school and as time went on he realized that teaching was his calling. In 2011, he enrolled in ECC for a diploma in education. Later after his graduation he was employed as a co-tutor at ECA.

'Change begins with an individual' He hopes that his students will go out and create a positive impact and that's why he wants to advance in learning to as to reach a wider community as a full-time teacher.

Born at the beginning of the second civil war, John experienced bloodshed and severe famine. At a tender age he learnt to defend himself and his family and therefore to effectively do this, he joined the White army. In 2000, he had a spiritual awakening and he wanted to quit the army and miraculously his commander let him go. During this time he met Pastor Francis Ayula who told him about ECC and he officially enrolled in 2009 for a certificate in Theology and a degree in the same field in 2012. His passion is to become the transformational change in South Sudan, one person at a time through teaching, preaching and publishing books.

Born in a small village called Alatmus, to a Christian family Johnson grew up with the knowledge of Christ but a few years later the first civil war began and this traumatized him as a child. In 1988 he accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and despite this bleak situation, he would find himself encouraging others to have hope. He was more drawn to ministering to children because they are the worst affected in war and to be better equipped, he enrolled in a Theology course in Nuba Mountains and did his internship at ECC in the Children's Ministry. Later he went for further training in South Africa and he came back and started training Children Ministry workers which he is still doing at ECC with so much passion. 'Children are the majority and they are the current leaders and bringing them up as God fearing people will make a difference and bring much needed hope for current and future generations. This will be achieved by training Children Ministry trainers to go an create a positive impact in the current and future generation'

I joined ECC in January 2009 for a certificate program in Theology and Ministry. In 2010, I joined the South African Theological Seminary in collaboration with ECC and I was among the first graduates with a Bachelors of Theology in 2012. It was a struggle to study online, but thank God for ECC staff especially the Academic Council for mentoring me. Since all the courses were done online, I would have done anything if ECC did not give me access to accommodation and resources vital for my course.

Born when the first civil war was going, Michael at a tender age developed a deep hatred for the Arabs and this deeply affected him. His family was forced to escape to Uganda and live in a refugee camp for 12 years. In 1976, he returned to South Sudan and started undertaking his education. Suddenly, the second civil war broke out and many of his peers joined the army but he joined the Rebels in the intelligence division. He lived his life in the bush for 2 years. The turning point came in 1984. He was sent to spy on a area and it was raining heavily. Accidentally he fell into a river and as he struggled against the current he cried out to God, 'If you save my life, I will stop being a soldier. 'God saved his life but he had another challenge, leaving the rebels. Years later, he escaped but his life was in constant danger from the Rebels and the Army but now he was a devout Christian and he had to make a tough choice. He finally finished his secondary education and he passed very well but one of the pre-requisites was that he had to join the army for 2 years. He declined the offer and joined a Theological College instead. Living in constant fear because the government by then was targeting Christians and escaped to Uganda and pursued a Diploma in Theology and was sent back to South Sudan as a missionary church planter and during this time he met George. He got to know about ECC through George and he undertook other courses to better equip him for the Missions and Outreach ministry. His passion is in Outreach and Missions ministry and the greatest problem in South Sudan is lack of trained leaders and his dream is to go to the grassroots and train leaders who will walk the talk and create a positive impact. He has also authored a book, 'The problem of witchcraft in Mundu Community.'
