Learn about the Presbyterian Mission Agency

For over 200 years, Presbyterians have been responding to the call of Jesus Christ, taking the gospel into all the world and bearing witness to Christ’s saving love to the ends of the earth. Today the Holy Spirit is still on the move, calling us to share in what God is doing in the world. As your partner in Christ’s service, the Presbyterian Mission Agency is faithfully working to inspire, equip, and connect all Presbyterians to do Christ's mission, bringing together congregations, worshiping communities, mid councils, mission networks, and other parts of the church ecosystem as they nurture and shape disciples and serve Christ in the world.

The Presbyterian Mission Agency is the ministry and mission agency of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Five ministry areas carry out our missional work: Compassion, Peace and Justice; Evangelism and Church Growth; Racial Ethnic and Women’s Ministries/Presbyterian Women; Theology, Worship and Education; and World Mission. Together with Shared Services, Communications, and Funds Development, these ministry areas work to inspire, equip, and connect all Presbyterians for the church’s work.

Linda Valentine serves as Executive Director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
