Theology, Formation & Evangelism


Theology, Formation & Evangelism brings together several ministries that form and transform disciples, leaders, congregations and new worshiping communities. Our ministries are diverse but each empowers a unique witness to Jesus Christ: 1001 New Worshiping Communities, the Company of New Pastors, Financial Aid for Service, Evangelism, Theological Education, Theology and Worship, and Youth/College/Young Adult ministries.

Our work is broken into two groups that partner together to help grow and guide the church and those who work in the service of Christ.


Theology and Worship

  • Company of New Pastors, a mentoring program that works with new pastors to help them through seminary and into the first year of ministry
  • Financial Aid for Service, which provides grants to institutions and scholarships to individuals to help offset the cost of education
  • Interfaith Relations, which helps individuals and churches create cooperative, nurturing relationships
  • Theological Conversations, which offers thoughtful theological discorse on important issues
  • Theological Education, which supports and promotes the work of PC(USA) seminaries
  • Worship, which offers extensive resources for pastors and congregations in planning weekly worship service and special services

It responds to the situation in “eighty-one countries where homosexuality is illegal, [and where] God’s global family includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people who face persecution for simply being who they are, for whom they love, and with whom they create a family.” This resource is intended to raise awareness and prompt compassionate action on behalf of the PC(USA).
