Appointment: Rev Amos Kasibante

amos kasibante The Reverend Amos Kasibante has been appointed Anglican Chaplain in the University’s Chaplaincy as from July 1, 2002. 

The Reverend Amos Kasibante is a well-travelled man, originating from Uganda where most of his extended family live. As a tutor at the Bishop Tucker College in Uganda, he was exposed to many different ethnic groups as the school also took students from Rwanda, Burundi and Sudan.

In Britain for the last ten years, he has held positions in London and Birmingham, most recently in Cardiff where he was Vice-Principal of St Michael’s Theological College, and Associate Lecturer in Theology and Ethics at Cardiff University.

He graduated from Trinity College and Ridley Hall, Cambridge in 1983 where he stayed to complete a Master’s Degree in 1987. He next studied for the Master of Sacred Theology (STM) Degree at Yale University Divinity School in New Haven, USA, where he was also achieved a Diploma in Anglican Studies.

His philosophy of never ceasing to learn is reflected in his current part-time studies for a doctorate at the University of Birmingham.

Amos is excited about his new post, and is looking forward to working and discovering the diverse life and activities of the Chaplaincy, the Churches and the University. He and his wife, Sonia, are hoping to make many new friends here.

Although Amos has travelled to Eastern and Southern Africa, the Caribbean, USA, Central and Southern America and Europe, he appreciates rare moments when he can sit down and simply do ‘nothing’ - which is not always possible with nine-year-old daughter, Miriam. He also enjoys open air pursuits; walking, cycling or gardening, or indoors; reading, listening to music and watching nature programmes.
