Presbyterian World Mission Giving Opportunities 2014-2015

Presbyterian World Mission Giving Opportunities Catalog 2013-2014

As we visit with Presbyterians around the country, we are amazed at how enthusiastically our church has embraced Presbyterian World Mission’s three critical global initiatives: addressing the root causes of poverty, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, and working for reconciliation. Presbyterians show their support through their prayers and financial support and by participating in one or more of the initiatives through direct mission involvement. These initiatives took shape after extensive prayer and conversations with our global partners and mission workers and with mission leaders across the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

They are deeply rooted in Scripture and in our Reformed tradition. As we have lived into these initiatives, we have continued to dialogue with mission workers, global partners and mission leaders from the US. We have asked global partners to consider the specific types of mission engagement they would like to see around each of these initiatives. We have asked mission leaders in the United States and mission personnel how their support of the three initiatives could be made more faithful and effective. Out of these conversations, these three campaigns have been developed:

  • Providing quality education for one million children
  • Training leaders for community transformation
  • Ending violence against women and children

Our mission workers play a central role in the execution of these campaigns. They work alongside global partners in almost 50 countries to present a holistic witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. They serve in ministries that are transforming individuals and communities.

Your gift will be used in accordance with the Presbyterian Mission Agency gift acceptance policy which can be found at www.presbyterianmission.org/giftacceptancepolicy/. Furthermore, all gifts designated from this catalog will be used solely for the sending and support of mission workers through Presbyterian World Mission. Occasionally, because a particular mission worker or ministry is especially popular, or because many directed gifts are received during the last few days of the fiscal year, some ministries may receive more support than is needed. When that occurs, the surplus will be used to support a similar ministry or held to support the same ministry in a future year. This is done so that your donation will support ministry where it is needed most and your gift will have the biggest impact.

  1. My mother's name is Erma Young. She brought the Congo Choir to her church in Sarasota, FL. She was born in the Ivory Coast of West Africa. She is going to be 90 years old. We are celebrating her birthday Oct. 11 at West Jefferson Presbyterian Church. Would there be any way the Congo Choir could sing for her? I am sure they will remember Rev Tom Young and Erma Young from Bee Ridge Presbyterian church.

  4. A local Lutheran Church is closing after 150 years. They have some funds at their disposal and planned to donate to the local church camp. I would like to suggest to them that they donate instead to the Mission orphanage in Malawa. I grew up with The Rev. Paul Heller here in Pittsburgh and am acquainted his and Darlene's work. I understand that funding has been cut and would like to help. Any information that you could give me on this mission would be appreciated so that I can present this as a proposal to the congregation. Also, I would need to know how to handle the donation so that it is earmarked to that mission.
