Koech, Roy Kibet

Serving At: Arch Street UMC, Philadelphia

Home Country: Kenya

Roy Kibet Koech 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 on Aug. 23, 2019.

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.

Although he was born in Kenya, Roy grew up in Wilmore, Kentucky, and later western Nebraska. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice from Fort Hays State University and is a member of Trinity United Methodist Church, Russell, Kansas, in the Great Plains Annual Conference. He has served as a Micah Corps intern with the Great Plains Conference and as an Ethnic Young Adult intern with the General Board of Church and Society.

“My faith journey began when I was born into Immanuel Africa Gospel Church in Kericho, Kenya, where my dad was a young pastor,” Roy said. “My family has always been centered around our faith, from our time in Kenya to Kentucky, where my parents went through higher education, to western Nebraska, where my parents had their first appointments. My call to mission is very much tied to my call to faith and my family.” Working as a Micah Corps intern, he continued, “I truly understood my calling into advocacy.” In his Church and Society internship, Roy said, “I had the chance to experience my faith in connection with my calling.” And while his criminal justice degree is important to him, the young man acknowledged, “Advocacy is not limited to the courtroom.”
