Prayer card - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Young
Use this card as you pray for Mission Co-worker Rev. Dr. Rebecca Young. The card includes a photo and overview of her work.
Rebecca integrates the two aspects of her ministry, teaching at the seminary and overseeing Presbyterian Disaster Assistance’s tsunami response. The seminary teaching provides an opportunity to help students be faithful and respectful witnesses to their faith, as they go out to serve in a country of many religious traditions where Christianity is a small but strong minority. Rebecca seeks to model an active form of witness through her work with PDA, in which she frequently goes to the field when disasters occur, and integrates her experience serving in the tsunami response into a theology of why disasters occur and the church’s role in serving the survivors.
