Frances Cecilia Hayes is a Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. She was commissioned in August 2017.
The Global Mission Fellows program takes young adults ages 20-30 out of their home environments and places them in new contexts for mission experience and service. The program has a strong emphasis on faith and justice. Global Mission Fellows become active parts of their new local communities. They connect the church in mission across cultural and geographical boundaries. They grow in personal and social holiness and become strong young leaders working to build just communities in a peaceful world.
Frances is from the Rio Texas Annual Conference in the United States, where she is a member of the Windcrest United Methodist Church in San Antonio, Texas. She has studied at Wiley College in Marshall, Texas; Wayland Baptist University in San Antonio, Texas; and Everest Institute in San Antonio, Texas. Her father is a United Methodist pastor.
As a pastor’s child, Frances grew up in the church, taking part in many activities. Her faith was tested at age 16 when her innocence was taken from her, but she endured with the support of friends, family, and God. “And now I give my testimony and try to be an example for others, spreading the love of God and winning souls for Christ.” Her call to mission service came at an early age; one inspiration was her grandmother, who has lived to be more than 100 years old.
