Moses Owilli
Neats Academic Dean

“Through NEATS, God is raising up a new generation of people to speak and personally live according to His instructions. I am excited to see God raising up men who are willing to abide in Him, die to self and carry the cross daily.”

Moses Owilli was born in a small village located in northeastern Uganda. His father died when Moses was only six months old leaving his mother to raise him with his six other brothers and sisters.

Difficult situations and lack of resources forced him to drop-out of school at a young age. In 1996 he came to Jinja to look for a job to help his mom support the family. He worked as a security guard with a fish factory for three years. While there, he received Christ has his personal Lord and Savior (1998). While still working with the fish factory, he served as a missionary and got the opportunity to attend Global Theological Seminary. Here he received his diploma in theology. He studied during the day and worked as a guard at night.

After finishing school, he was asked to teach at Global from 2004 through 2015. Pastor David Kaya asked Owilli to come to South Sudan and help teach at NEATS. He now serves as the school’s academic dean.

Moses is married to Catherine and they have been blessed with four children, three boys and a girl. “The Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to pour my life into other young men who are also ready to share Christ with others,” says Owilli.
