New waves of immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East, and East Europe are coming to this nation as immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers, migrant workers, students and religious workers. In the case of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the blessing of having new Presbyterians from abroad creates the need to provide different welcoming resources. One of those is this program of reformed theological education under a Presbyterian perspective, with and for the leadership of the new international communities of faith.
The Presbyterian Church office of New Immigrants Congregational Support, under the General Assembly Mission Council, and the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico (ESPR), present their mission partnership with this dynamic, diverse and flexible reformed theological program for new immigrant Presbyterian lay-leaders. The office of New Immigrants Congregational Support ’s mission includes the formation of new immigrants by providing resources for Christian leadership development. The ESPR is a theological institution related to the PC(USA) through the General Assembly’s Committee on Theological Education. Together, both institutions are committed to run this plan as an intensive two-year program to be assessed for further extension as an inter-denominational and international project.
