Presbyterian World Mission maintains a historic partnership with the Presbyterian Church of Venezuela, founded in 1896 with the support of Presbyterian mission from the United States. The church is small but dedicated, and seeks to develop its capacity for new church development while continuing to support its ongoing ministries, which include the Colegio Americano in Caracas and several programs for at-risk children and youth. The church in Venezuela is eager to connect more with PC(USA) congregations and presbyteries.
