January 7, 2014
The Rev. Rosemary C. Mitchell, former vice president for seminary relations at Princeton Theological Seminary, has joined the Presbyterian Mission Agency staff as a mission engagement advisor.
In this role, Mitchell will link individuals and congregations with the work of two mission agency ministries, the Office of Public Witness in Washington, DC, and the Presbyterian Ministry at the UN. She also will seek to build financial support for these ministries and serve as a member of the mission agency’s Funds Development Ministry team.
“These are important ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, and we look forward to engaging with Presbyterians who want to make an impact in the world through the peace and justice initiatives that are carried out through these offices,” said Terri Bate, senior director of the Funds Development Ministry team.
Before working at Princeton, Mitchell, who was ordained by Susquehanna Valley Presbytery, served two congregations, New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC, and Downtown United Presbyterian Church in Rochester, N.Y. She was also the founding executive director of the Women’s Foundation of Genesee Valley in Rochester, N.Y.
Mitchell has a wide variety of media experience on topics related to the Christian faith. She has hosted and produced a weekly radio program, contributed to a network television special and co-authored two books.
In her new role, Mitchell will serve Presbyterians across the country from her home base in Trenton, N.J.
Mitchell is a native of Endicott, N.Y., and received her M.Div. degree from Princeton Seminary. She is a certified fund raising executive, a credential conferred by CFRE International.
