‘Everything is simple from the outside’ Frank Gilbert
Katharine Henry is a Global Mission Fellow US-2 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.
