Vivian Mutambi 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.
Vivian is from Bungoma, Kenya,, where she is a member of the Oasis of Glory Church. She holds a bachelor’s degree in commerce from the Technical University of Kenya and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Kenya, both schools in Nairobi. She has worked in retail and supply procurement.
Her spiritual journey, Vivian recalls, was adversely affected by acute poverty as a child and financial difficulties that almost ended her academic studies. “I thought I could not grow to become someone or make an impact on society, but I was rescued by the grace of God and his mercies.”
Her call to mission resulted from seeing the “social injustices in my country and around the world. This served as a wake-up call to me as a Christian to do something about it. The Bible demands that we as Christians act justly and do works of love.”
