A Message from World Mission

Jose Luis Casal, Director World Mission

Presbyterians do mission in partnership. We believe that doing mission in partnership broadens our awareness of how interconnectional God’s mission is at the local, national and global levels. The one table around which we gather is God’s table and the one mission to which we are called is God’s mission.

In more than 50 countries around the world, we partner with local churches and faith communities bound by our fundamental unity in our Lord Jesus, bringing together U.S. congregations and mid-councils with our brother and sisters in Christ around the world.

True mission partnership does not focus on giving and getting, but on building relationships, learning from one another and walking together in faith and friendship. In nearly every country we have found areas of similar challenges and ways to create collaborative solutions. We are learning the strengths of each other’s systems so that together we can build the body of Christ in both places.

From the neighborhood to the world, our joint mission of cross-cultural service is always, changing, growing and evolving. We will continue to nurture those partnerships in ways that result in maximum collective impact.

Some trips are considered study tours to learn about an issue, a people or a place. Some are called partnership trips because they are short-term trips carried out within the framework of an ongoing, long-term “partnership” between… Read more »
