KATO JOHN SSERUNKUMA – Administrative Assistant/Coach
I am 22yrs and single. I joined Rising Star in 2008 as a Rising Star kid, I grew up under the ministry well mentored by Matt and Brecka Arnett.
I cant forget to recognize other coaches who also mentored me through education, football, Christianity and taught me the good discipline.

NTAMBI DORIAN – Sports Coordinator
I’ve been working with rising star since May 2010 as the sports coordinator.
I love the look of enlightenment on a child’s face when they comprehend something. Either when they gets a math concept right or tries something new on the pitch and it works out.
My favorite memory at Rising Star is when I had to leave the team in a camp at Entebbe for my introduction ceremony but the kids would not let me leave.
NAKATO OLYVIA – Education Assistant
Am the education coordinator at the organization where I teach the ministries children phonics, reading and bible class.
What I love about Rising Star is that it gives the children hope in life. Their spiritual life which is most important is nurtured.
Their education is taken care of and they get to do what they enjoy. Their talents in football is nurtured regardless of the different background which is an amazing thing.
My favorite memory is the biography presentations for last holiday program. To me that kind of assignment looked like it wasn’t meant for primary school children but Matt Arnett said they could handle and he believed they could pull it off.
So we went to work, worked hard at it and the day of presentations was amazing, I was so proud of the children.
They still come back and read about the personalities that where not their assignment.
And last Saturday, after bible study, four of the kids that were in attendance gave their lives to Christ. My heart leaped with joy because in our month that’s the first time.
