Commissional Corner: Mocha Khaling

Mocha Khaling

The MA in Global Leadership program contains many students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Mocha Khaling was born in a remote village of Manipur State, situated in Northeast India. He spent most of his schooling there until he moved to Imphal in 1984. It was in his hometown that Mocha accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in the summer of 1989. Mocha's conversion changed his life completely, as God began to open doors for him to pursue various vocations in ministry.

Mocha attended Bible College from 1990-1994. After graduation, he felt God calling him to the missionary field. He applied and was accepted into a missionary organization where he was later sent to the mission field in 1995. It was in this same organization that Mocha met his wife, Bongkushel. They were married in 1996 and currently have three children. From that point on, Mocha has helped in ministries of evangelism, church planting, and mission mobilization. In 2021 he felt God calling him to DBU to pursue an MAGL degree. Mocha states, "God has done so many marvelous things regarding my journey to study at DBU. My wife and I believe 100% that God made it possible for me to study here."

Even though Mocha has only attended one semester at DBU so far, he is without a doubt sure that this is where God wants him. The MAGL program encompasses many soft skills Mocha desires to learn to better equip him for cross-cultural ministry. He has taken a great liking to all his classes and is very thankful to all the professors for their love for God and their students. If Mocha could give any advice to his fellow classmates, he would say, "Love God and look at everything as He sees, so that the things that break the heart of God may break our hearts too."

The MAGL program has been a great inspiration and encouragement to Mocha as the courses offered are so relevant to whatever ministry he may want to pursue. Mocha's understanding of his worldview has grown exponentially, and he expects he will never truly be the same once he graduates from the intercultural studies program. Mocha says, "I am expectantly waiting for that awesome and wonderful graduation day, God willing, in August 2024. So, my advice to the graduating students would be: Go, light your world."
