Active Missionary

Trobby  Kandala

Trobby Kandala  is a Global Mission Fellow (International) with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. He is part of the 2021-2023 Global Mission Fellow cohort.   
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.   

Trobby is an active youth member of Ikelenge Jerusalem United Methodist Parish in Kitwe, Zambia. The church is part of the Zambia Annual Conference. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in agribusiness management from Africa University, Zimbabwe.

“I have seen the work of God through mission and volunteer work,” Trobby said. “I grew up at Mujila Falls, where I saw how God can transform people’s lives through mission work. My life, too, was transformed.”
