Welcome to Chosen Junior School.


Our Mission

Chosen With a Mission exists to promote the progress, successes and needs of the Chosen Junior School and Chosen With a Mission Evangelical Ministries in Matugga, Uganda. 

What We've Achieved

  • In 2012, many joined Nancy Wilson in praying for the beginnings of this vision and call that God put on James Kintu's heart for the orphans in Matugga.

  • In 2014, the Johnsons sold a few items on eBay and made their first monetary contribution to Chosen Junior School.

  • Later in 2014, after mailing some basic art supplies to James, the Chosen students created paintings that were auctioned off in Ballwin, MO. Close to $600 was raised which built two new classrooms and bought roofing for existing classrooms.

  • In 2015, the Johnsons' new church home in Pleasant View, TN hosted a second art auction that raised $6000! James was able to buy a piece of land on which to build a new school with dorms for the orphaned students. About 1/3 of the students at Chosen are orphans.

  • In 2016, a team of five from TN traveled to Matugga, Uganda to see firsthand the needs of the school.

  • In 2017, a team of nine from TN traveled back to Matugga for a groundbreaking ceremony on the new land, trusting God that soon we will begin to build!

  • In 2017, Chosen With a Mission non profit was formed.

  • In 2018, CWAM held their 1st Annual Dessert Banquet and Auction, attended by over 130 supporters who generously gave over $11,000!

  • A guard house and storage shed have been built on the mighty Chosen land and Chosen Junior School alumni spent their school break in September making and baking bricks!

  • In November of 2018, a team of 6 traveled to Uganda.
