04 Aug Michelle Harris Leaving the UB Global Team
In August, Michelle Harris will conclude six years as an associate director of UB Global. Michelle will work full-time this year on writing her doctoral dissertation on community-based resettlement of refugees. After that, her hope is to focus her work and ministry in Fort Wayne, where she lives.
She writes, “It has been a privilege to serve the United Brethren in Christ Church through UB Global these last six years. I have been blessed to serve on this team with gifted and godly people.”
Michelle joined the UB Global team in 2016 with over 25 years of cross-cultural experience in mentoring, training, and teaching in a variety of settings. Her responsibilities with UB Global have included overseeing our partnership with Mattru Hospital in Sierra Leone, working with short-term mission teams, and using her gifts in writing.
In 2012, Michelle and her family moved to Fort Wayne, Ind., after serving in cross-cultural ministry with college students with InterVarsity Link—8 years in France, and 11 years in the African nation of Gabon. Since returning to Indiana, her husband, Scott, has continued working for InterVarsity. They are members of Anchor UB church in Fort Wayne. Scott and Michelle’s son and daughter-in-law, Justin and Lydia, will be serving with InterVarsity Link in France beginning in September.
We thank Michelle for the valuable contributions she has made to United Brethren missions during the past six years and wish her the best in whatever comes next.
