Transformational Mission

A Message from World Mission

This year, the Presbyterian Church is celebrating 180 years of international mission work. In honoring this milestone, we recognize and appreciate the 180-degree transformation we are witnessing because of Christ’s love.

Our church is rooted in the transformative power of a relationship with Jesus. In it, we individually and collectively experience a 180-degree change in our lives. As followers of Christ, we’re called to be part of God’s transformation of the world. Therefore, we continue the work Jesus began and to which the church is called: sharing the Good News, seeking reconciliation in cultures of violence and addressing the root causes of poverty. Today, nearly 130 mission co-workers in 70 countries are engaged in these vital ministries, working alongside global and ecumenical partners and U.S. Presbyterians. In these deep relationships with sisters and brothers across the globe, we begin to mirror Christ’s transformative relationship.

So, we joyfully celebrate Mission 180 – 180 years of life-changing mission service. Our commitment is enduring. We focus on long-term solutions, not quick fixes. Together we are accomplishing much more than we could ever do alone.

If you are not currently engaged with the work of World Mission, please contact us to find out how we can work together to accomplish God’s mission.

The Global Crisis for People Who Are LGBT and Their Families: A Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Response

The publication of this resource fulfills a commissioner resolution adopted by the 221st General Assembly (2014) directing that it be delivered to mid councils for study and action. 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).

Presbyterians Do Mission in Partnership (English)

The practice of partnership guides our whole connectional church. It guides us individually as members, officers and pastors. It guides us collectively as congregations, presbyteries, synods, General Assembly ministries and related institutions. This document paraphrases a policy statement adopted by the 215th General Assembly (2003) regarding mission in partnership.
