Jamie Bloyd

Jamie is the visionary behind Childero. Jamie visited Uganda in 2007 and returned to Kentucky with the conviction she would one day adopt a child from the troubled country. After running into difficulties in the process, showed her that her purpose was not to adopt one child but to bring God’s love to many children in Uganda. It is her hope that through Childero people of all ages will see the light and love of Jesus reflected through service and attract a country of new followers to Christ.

David Ntogohnya

In 2010 David, a native Ugandan, was attending Asbury Seminary pursuing his Master’s of Divinity in preparation for leadership in the United Methodist Church. During his time in Lexington he was a member of Centenary Church, home to Jamie Bloyd, the founder. They shared a passion for Ugandan orphans and realized it was God ordained to piece together a partnership. David is currently serving as the Direct Superintendent of the U.M. church in Northern Uganda. David oversees Childero’s coordinator and assists in our Ugandan partnerships with churches, vendors, and clinics.


Childero is privileged to partner with the Gulu Methodist Partnership Incorporated (GMPI), whose mission is to assist the Gulu, Uganda, United Methodist Church District pastors and churches in their efforts to make Christian disciples and minister to the needs of their churches and communities under the guidance of the East African Conference and Gulu District leaders. GMPI has been working in the Gulu District since before 2009.


Each Bible Club is led by our local Bible Club facilitator Sandra, who travels to each Club once a week to lead the children in song, dance, and discipleship. To supplement her work, each Bible Club has volunteers who come from the village congregation to teach or lead worship. Hear the story of Eric, one of our most enthusiastic volunteers, in the video below!
