“Defining what constitutes mission and how mission is funded and who has fiscal authority are fundamental questions that are beginning to arise for us,” said the Rev.

With nearly all the bills in and paid for, the Conference Center project at the Presbyterian Center in Louisville, Kentucky came in at about $130,000 under the revised budget of about $3.88 million, A Corp President Kathy Lueckert reported to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), A Corporation Board of Directors Friday.
The welcome of people forced to leave their homes to find a new place to live played a role in Jesus’ life and his teachings. Motivated by fear for their son’s safety, Mary and Joseph took Jesus and sought refuge in Egypt (Matthew 2:13-15). Jesus would later proclaim that in welcoming people we do not know, we welcome him (Matthew 25:35).
In response, Presbyterians across the country and around the world have been, and are, involved in welcoming refugees as our siblings and new friends. Louisville is no exception.
In addition to approving the Women of Faith awards for 2022 (see that story here) the Presbyterian Mission Agency Board concluded its three-day meeting at Stony Point Center Friday by hearing reports by corresponding members, approving reports from its three newly formed teams and, as it always does, worshiping the God who guides the work.

Genuine relationships and a long-term commitment are key. That message was clearly stated during a conversation about community partnerships between Black community leaders in Louisville and leaders of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) agencies and entities held on July 28.
The Presbyterian Mission Agency Board approved proposed 2023 and 2024 budgets for the mission agency Wednesday of about $70.1 million for 2023 and about $70.7 million for 2024.
