Derrick is a Ugandan who was born and raised in Kampala Uganda. He is pursuing a Bachelor of Theology at International Faith Theological College (IFTC) of the Institute for Christian Works South Carolina USA (Kenyan Chapter), a Bachelor of Laws at the University of London (International programme).
Derrick’s keen interest in Christian Apologetics, Cultures, Worldviews, Law, Philosophy saw him sign up for the ‘Core Module’ (an introduction to Christian apologetics and world-views) and ‘Engaging the modern world Elective’ from the RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministry) academy. He therefore also serves with the RZIM team Uganda as a Christian Apologist and has spoken on occasion at University campuses such as Makerere University and many churches.
He is passionate about social justice, and engaging ‘millennials’ that thirst and hunger for truth and seek answers to a host of unanswered questions. He concurs with Christian Hofrieter (RZIM Austria) that it’s not an either/or choice (False Dilemma) to ‘reach out to those in need’ and ‘preach the Good News’ but rather, a both/and choice.
In his free time, he thoroughly enjoys reading and having conversations with people, playing Jazz guitar, and listening to jazz music, spoken word and poetry.
