Season of Peace
Presbyterian Mission Agency
Welcoming, nurturing, feeding, and sheltering people in the name of Jesus Christ—this is God’s work through the Presbyterian Mission Agency. Whenever and wherever the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is engaged in doing mission and ministry, God is at work in and through Presbyterian Mission as it inspires, equips, and connects Presbyterians in Christ’s service.
Presbyterians are inspired by the 1001 New Worshiping Communities movement, excited that new, varied, and even unconventional forms of church have begun to change the world and the church for the sake of the gospel. Working in partnership with churches and mid councils, the Presbyterian Mission Agency is providing vision and training resources to innovative leaders, helping with credentialing and financial support where needed and keeping Presbyterians at the edge of the Spirit’s work.
Presbyterian young adults are equipped by the Presbyterian Mission Agency’s young adult catalyst and an ambitious initiative called UKirk, which is bringing new life and energy to the church’s ministry with college students.
Presbyterians are connected through our many transition-into-ministry programs, such as the Company of New Pastors, For Such a Time as This, and racial ethnic leadership institutes. We also worked with existing congregations—through programs such as New Beginnings—to help presbyteries and congregations discern their future stories.
Even in the midst of chaos, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance delivers God’s gift of consolation and hope through an outpouring of volunteer support, teaching materials, and other resources.
The Presbyterian Mission Agency is the ministry and mission agency of the PC(USA). In partnership with synods, presbyteries, congregations, Presbyterian-related organizations, and ecumenical partners, Presbyterian Mission strives to offer the world a visible witness of Jesus Christ. Five ministry areas carry out the mission work of the Presbyterian Mission Agency: Compassion, Peace, and Justice; Evangelism and Church Growth; Racial Ethnic & Women’s Ministries/Presbyterian Women; Theology, Worship, and Education; and World Mission.

Let us pray
Gracious God, lead us to hearts that need to know your love, and help us to demonstrate the hope you offer us all. Give us strength to respond with the love you have shown us, so that we may serve others in your name. Amen.
