Lawrence Omondi 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.
Lawrence is from Kisumu, Kenya, where he is a member of the Chrisco Church (Christ's Co-Workers Fellowship), a Kenya-based denomination. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree (with honors) in project planning and management from the Moi University School of Human Resources in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county, Kenya. He has worked as a project assistant and intern for Inexpa Building Systems Limited, a project management construction company in Nairobi, Kenya.
Balancing the care of is sick father with the demands of school in young years was at once a challenge to Lawrence’s faith development and a contributor to his sense of responsibility to others. The passing of his father was pivotal in his decision to seek service in mission.
“Putting faith into action has been and will be my mission in life,” he says.
