Mission Around the World

The goal of Presbyterian World Mission is to inspire, equip and connect U.S. Presbyterians and global partners for faithful and effective mission. As Presbyterians we believe we are called to mission through the discipline of partnership.  The one table we gather around is God’s table and the one mission to which we are called is God’s mission.

After seeking input from Presbyterians worldwide, World Mission identified three critical global initiatives to more effectively focus its work. This allows us to address the root causes of some of the most pervasive problems in our world—poverty alleviation and reconciliation in cultures of violence, and to more deeply engage in the work of international evangelism.

Presbyterian World Mission is a family of approximately 140 mission co-workers in 50 countries, 85 Young Adult Volunteers, more than 100 global partners and 6 long-term volunteers.

For nearly 180 years, Presbyterian missionaries have planted churches, built hospitals and started schools on nearly every continent. The seeds sown by these missionaries have in many places, developed into self-sustaining churches and schools now led by local Christians. Today, more than 94 million Christians worldwide, belong to churches that were founded or co-founded by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission workers.
