The Theological Community of Mexico is an ecumenical consortium of seminaries in Mexico City, a cooperative effort between Anglicans, Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, and other church bodies. All the seminaries are independent of one another but work together to prepare their students, especially through a shared core curriculum.
The Theological Community offers theological reflection and education for pastoral workers and church leaders committed to transforming our world so that it more faithfully mirrors the values of God’s reign. It aims to be a model for biblical-theological training in constant reformation.
During the last two years, the Theological Community has supported Presbyterian professors who were censured by the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico for their support of women’s ordination.
The Theological Community prizes and values the contributions of Presbyterian students and professors and is grateful to God for their contribution to the ecumenical life of the consortium.
Thanks to God’s faithfulness, support from the PC(USA) helped consolidate the Presbyterian presence in the Theological Community, which is committed to training women and men in a prophetic vocation and is rooted in an ecumenical vision that grows in the unity of Christ’s body.
—Rev. Dan González Ortega, Presbyterian pastor, rector of the Theological Community of Mexico

Let us pray
We express our thankfulness for the PC(USA) in the form of a beatitude:
“Blessed are those who follow the Lord in the path of the Good Samaritan. Those who dare to walk in his footsteps. To overcome the difficulties along the way. To defeat the fatigue of the journey. Those who are plotting new paths for others to follow and are eager to continue the work of the Lord. Those who, attentive and swift, change their route to meet the living Lord amid suffering, so prevalent in these times, so close to some, and for others so far away.”
—Marcelo A. Murúa, “Bienaventuranzas de la solidaridad”
