A Message from World Mission
Presbyterian World Mission brings God’s global family together to heal the wounds of poverty and violence and proclaim God’s saving love in Jesus Christ.
The year 2016 marks 179 years of international mission by the Presbyterian Church. Over the years, Presbyterian missionaries have planted churches, built hospitals, and started schools on every continent. The seeds sown by those missionaries have, in many places, developed into self-sustaining churches and institutions now led by local Christians. In fact, more than 94 million Christians around the world now belong to churches that were founded or co-founded by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) mission workers.
Today, nearly 200 mission co-workers in approximately 50 countries are engaged in equally vital ministries of sharing faith and working against poverty and violence.
Presbyterian World Mission helps Presbyterians offer a witness to Jesus Christ in today’s world by sending mission personnel to face the challenges of evangelizing and continuing the historic emphases of the Church.
In collaboration with U.S. Presbyterians and global partners, World Mission inspires, equips and connects communities of mission practice to engage in God’s mission: to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, help the most vulnerable—women and children—and promote reconciliation amidst cultures of violence.
We invite you to step into the circle of global discipleship with World Mission.
