Mely Lengkong 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.
Mely is from Indonesia, where she is a member of GKI Kwitang, a large independent church in Jakarta. She holds a Bachelor of Social and Political Science degree from the Christian University of Indonesia in Jakarta, with an emphasis on international relations. She has worked in financial administration, marketing, and youth services. Mely is originally from Bekasi in East Bekasi/West Java.
Reading the Bible from start to finish as a young girl helped Mely to gain a positive outlook and patience in facing adversity. A major challenge came in relation to her desire to study international relations, an opportunity at first denied but which became possible through scholarship support from her local church.
Mely is committed to using her energy, knowledge, and skills to contribute to society and tell other people about the miracle-working love of God.
