United Methodist Zimbabwe Episcopal Area Health Board
Home Country: Nigeria, Africa
Alikali Moses is a Global Mission Fellow of the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, serving for two years as assistant coordinator of the United Methodist Zimbabwe Episcopal Area Health Board, based in Harare. He was commissioned in September 2016.
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.
The health board of the annual conferences within the Zimbabwe Episcopal Area empowers and assists the hospitals, clinics, and other United Methodist-related health programs. The goal is holistic, affordable, and accessible healthcare services. As a monitoring and evaluation officer, Alikali works in rural and urban communities where the church has health ministries. United Methodist health services in Zimbabwe seek to build the capacity of both church and community and are offered without regard to religious affiliation.
Alikali is from Abuja, Kogi State, Nigeria, where he belongs to a congregation of the Dominion Chapel International Churches. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and statistics from the University of Agriculture at Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria. He also has certificates in data quality and monitoring and evaluation from the Global Health eLearning Center, a distance learning program of USAID. He has worked for a number of community health projects.
Dating the start of his mature faith journey to age 15, Alikali says he has developed a consistent fellowship with God through God’s Word and through interaction with other believers. Scripture has taught him to be openhanded and passionate in response to the poor and needy, a situation he knows well from his own background. “My prayer every day is for God to make me a blessing to my generation and a solution to the needs of the world.”
Moses spends many hours as a volunteer with nongovernmental health programs in the areas of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, rural health, and services to orphans. His work has resulted in awards from the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations, the National Youth Service Corps, and the governor of Nasarawa State, Nigeria.
His motivation comes from Micah 6:8, to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. His passion “is to share my Christian faith with the world, give hope to the hopeless, and share the love of God.”
