The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been in partnership with the United Mission to Nepal since the mission began in 1954. In the midst of a vast Hindu majority we have worked with the Christians in Nepal through mission personnel and partner church relationships. Our ministry together consists of church empowerment, community development, health ministries and leadership development. Ecumenism in the Church of Nepal is still under formation. The country is being torn apart by political instability due to a years-long Maoist rebellion. With our Nepalese partner we feel that neither this, nor any other barrier, is insurmountable.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has celebrated more than 60 years of ministry in this South Asian kingdom.

United Mission to Nepal

The United Mission to Nepal (UMN) is a cooperative effort between the people of Nepal and a large number of Christian organizations from more than 15 countries in four different continents. UMN was established in 1954 with a mission “to minister to the needs of the people of Nepal in the Name and Spirit of Christ, and to make Christ known by word and life, thereby strengthening the universal Church in its total ministry.”

UMN’s vision is that “Nepali individuals and communities will be able to secure their basic needs in a sustainable manner through participation in effective and self-reliant Nepali organizations, including Nepali Christian organizations.”
