Ideas for Presentation
As an ambassador for the Presbyterian Mission Agency, you get to share what God is doing in the world with your friends and fellow Presbyterians. This is a great opportunity to bear witness to Christ’s love and tell the stories of good and faithful mission and ministry work going on in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
Where to Present
There are all kinds of possibilities, from informal conversations over a cup of coffee to multimedia presentations to church groups. Here are a few to consider:
- Session meetings and mission committee meetings
- Presbytery meetings
- Minutes for Mission on Sunday mornings
- Church or presbytery mission fairs
- Civic and community organization meetings
- Presbytery education day or synod school
- Church dinners and gatherings of friends at home

Find out what issues your audience is most interested in or passionate about. Global mission? How to grow the church? How Presbyterian mission work is funded?
