Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or
think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church
by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.    Ephesians 3:20-21
In 1988 Tony Stark, pastor of Madison Baptist Church, visited missionaries in West Africa. After returning to the US he
advised his church that God was calling him to be a missionary to Africa. With one year of deputation Brother Stark and his
family left for Uganda. They were sent by Madison Baptist Church, Madison, Alabama, as the first Independent Baptist
missionaries to Uganda. Even though they were going to Uganda, they decided to call their new ministry East Africa Outreach
because they felt that someday they would cross the borders into neighboring countries.  Other missionaries have been sent by
Madison Baptist Church but presently Mark Wallace and his family are the only residing missionaries with EAO serving with the
Starks. Today there are forty churches and missions in Uganda with one in the Congo and three in Sudan.  These churches are
pastored by nationals who have graduated from Uganda Baptist Bible Institute.
