Presbyterian mission co-workers are dedicated and passionate teachers, church planters, doctors, public health specialists, chaplains and human rights advocates. They teach theology, church history, Greek, Hebrew and English. They preach and evangelize. They organize and host mission teams from the United States. They accompany, they listen, they work in partnership with Christians in 50 countries around the world.

We invite you to learn about their work, read their first-person accounts through their letters, and support their vital ministry in support of the gospel through your prayers and gifts.
