“A little fatigue I do not regard, but I cannot afford to lose time,” John Wesley once said—and Dr. Thomas Muhomba took it to heart. Since 2006, Thomas has served the North Alabama Conference as Director of Ethnic and Multicultural Ministries. That’s a long way from his hometown of Murewa, Zimbabwe!
Thomas consults with local churches about ethnic ministries to strengthen their cross-cultural ministry efforts. He educates and assists in developing cross-cultural vision; transformational cross-cultural worship experiences; and leading ALPHA in a multicultural setting. He also coordinates the work of Religion and Race, facilitating the filing of immigration petitions on behalf of immigrant workers, verifying the immigration status of clergy from other countries, and serves as a Natural Church Development coach and trainer.
Thomas firmly believes that multicultural ministries are samples of recomposition in Christ, clearly showing what can be done on earth and giving us a foretaste of what will be in heaven. He sees himself as a missionary and is honored to be serving in North Alabama, the home Conference of the Methodist missionary Mildred Taylor who first brought his mother to Christ. His mother then passed on her strong faith to her son. Now Thomas’s work is to bring new energy and vision to North Alabama local churches to reach all persons for Jesus Christ.
Thomas’s long and storied educational background may explain his love of diversity. He attended United Theological College in Harare, Zimbabwe, earning a diploma in Theology; Mindolo Ecumenical Foundation in Kitwe, Zambia, earning a diploma in Ecumenical and Multicultural Church Ministries; and Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky, where he earned both a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Philosophy in Intercultural Studies—and learned to love country music!
