The Presbyterian Publishing Corporation (PPC) is revitalizing its benevolence programs, providing resources for international seminaries, newly ordained teaching elders, new worshiping communities/church developments, and for churches recovering from disaster. 

A denominational publisher of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), PPC has a history of service to the church. Presbyterians interested in supporting benevolence programs can give through the Presbyterian Foundation. For more information, contact the Rev. Laura M. Cheifetz, Executive Director of Church & Public Relations, by email at lcheifetz@presbypub.com or by phone at 502-569-5060. 

Through the “Resources for Newly Ordained Teaching Elders” and the “Resources forNew Worshiping Communities, New Church Developments, and Fellowships” programs, PPC provides gift certificates for $50 off an order of resources of the recipient’s choosing on one of its marketplaces. Free shipping is also offered. 

PPC will cooperate with the Office of the General Assembly to identify and communicate with the beneficiaries of the benevolence programs. 

Working with Presbyterian World Mission of the Presbyterian Mission Agency with the “Books Across Borders” benevolence program, and with the Theological Book Network, PPC provides current publications to international seminaries in need of books.

The “Disaster Assistance” benevolence program provides replacement resources, such as copies of the “Glory to God” hymnal and “The Book of Common Worship,” and a complimentary subscription to TheThoughtfulChristian.com studies, for churches recovering from catastrophic loss of property, in partnership with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. 

PPC is exploring the creation of other programs to best support the ministry of the broader church.
