Seth Ogeto 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.
Seth is from Kenya where he is a member of the Moheto First United Methodist Church in Migori, Nyanza Province, a part of the Kenya-Ethiopia Annual Conference. He holds a Bachelor of Education Arts degree from Kisii University. He has worked as a Project Associate with I Choose Life Africa, and as a History teacher and volunteer mentor in peer education.
His personal commitment to Jesus Christ took place while he was in high school and he learned to depend upon God in all aspects of life. Coming from a “desperately needy background,” Seth says, "I went up against all odds in life to be where I am today and I know that it is truly the hand of God at work.”
Seth’s call to mission is related to service as a mentor and peer educator. “This gave me an urge to be a missionary so I could impart the love of God to others. I believe I will touch lives and help those who are underprivileged in society to achieve their dreams, to attain better living conditions, and make the world a better place.”
