As the largest Protestant denomination in the country, the Presbyterian Church has maintained a strong sense of social concern for the people in Taiwan and the future of Taiwan. Presbyterian World Mission works in Taiwan through three mission co-workers and partner church relationships.
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission priorities include ministry to aboriginal people, peace, justice, security and self-determination, aboriginal student work, theological education and spiritual formation and ministry to foreign migrant workers.
John McCall has been serving in Taiwan for more than 16 years. He spends a lot of time on trains, buses, and subways as he travels throughout Taiwan teaching courses on ministry and spiritual formation at the three seminaries of the Presbyterian Church of Taiwan. John leads groups of pastors in different parts of Taiwan that meet monthly to find encouragement and challenge. Most weekends John is in a different church or presbytery teaching and preaching and equipping the leadership of the Taiwanese church.

Jonathan and Emily Seitz serve at the invitation of the Presbyterian Church of Taiwan. Jonathan teaches at Taiwan Theological College and Seminary in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. Most of Jonathan’s students are preparing for pastoral ministry. Emily serves in team ministry but hopes to work in a library or teach library science in the coming years.
