Alisha Rohrer 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.
Alisha is from the Indiana Annual Conference in the United States where she is a member of the Delphi United Methodist Church in the city of Delphi. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in international and community development from Indiana Wesleyan University. She has worked for her congregation, as staff at a YMCA camp, and as a community church intern. Her mother is a United Methodist pastor.
“My childhood was filled with Christian role models and church activities,” Alisha recalls. “I claimed my faith for myself through confirmation at the age of 13.” Her faith commitment grew through study and activities in high school and college years. “Through these experiences, I was able to build on my understanding of who God is and how I am called to serve.
“I heard God’s call for me to walk along with the poor and oppressed in our world. I have been called to encourage people to use the skills and resources they have to help them improve their living conditions and the conditions of their communities.”
