The United Protestant Church of Curaçao relates to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) through a regional organization called the Caribbean and North American Council for Mission. The United Protestant Church emphasizes evangelism, youth ministry, women’s ministries, music and social action. The Council for Mission is a group of Protestant churches from the region that unite to challenge and encourage one another in mission.

Current Council for Mission priorities, that all member churches are working towards together, are to eliminate violence against women, eliminate human trafficking, alleviate poverty and address root causes and promote church growth and renewal.
