Mission Networks

 


Mission networks and partnership networks bring together Presbyterians from around the United States who share a common international mission focus. World Mission-related mission and partnership networks facilitate building and maintaining healthy partnerships, and provide a place for representatives of various PC(USA) partnerships to share information, learn from each other, coordinate their efforts and find ways to have greater impact together as a network.

Each Mission network or partnership network centers around a specific country, people group or program area of ministry and is composed of Presbyterians who represent international mission partnerships established through their synods, presbyteries, congregations or other PC(USA) entities.
