Signory Mutach Kapend thumb.jpgSignory Mutach is a Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. He 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.

Signory is a citizen of the United States from Rochester, New York, although he was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He is a member of the Greece United Methodist Church in Rochester. He holds a commercial pilot’s license from Kingsky Flight Academy in Lakeland, Florida, and is certified in translation from French to English by the National Language Service Corps. He has worked as a language interpreter in courts and hospitals, and also for The United Methodist Church.

“Although my faith may be smaller than a mustard seed,” Signory says, “I have seen mountains being moved by God’s loving hand in my life despite the voice of doubt that sneaks in the back of my mind once in a while.” He began his faith journey as a toddler and experienced its growth as he learned that faith is expressed in works.

The goal of becoming a missionary pilot combines a childhood dream of flying with his heart’s desire to serve God by serving others through church and community. “I started searching for a way to combine my career choice and my heart’s desires, and that’s when the idea of being a missionary pilot lit up my head.”
