Presbyterian World Mission Giving Opportunities 2016-2017

Presbyterian World Mission Giving Opportunities Catalog 2016-2017

International headlines and Presbyterian efforts to alleviate poverty, share the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ, and work for reconciliation often intersect.

Our ministry in South Sudan, Egypt, and other places is relevant not because of its relationship to international press coverage. Instead, our work is relevant because it seeks to be faithful to God’s vision for our world and the expressed needs of our global partners.

This publication provides brief descriptions of how each person under Presbyterian mission appointment works toward these ends. It also contains stories on some of the ways our mission personnel engage the world. You can read about literacy ministry in a majority Muslim country in Africa, efforts to halt human trafficking in Asia, expanding opportunities for mission in Cuba, and reconciliation ministry in the Middle East.

Gifts from Presbyterians last year enabled our mission co-workers to serve in more than 50 countries around the world. We need your ongoing help so that the transformative ministries they perform alongside our global partners can continue.

Without generous congregations and individuals, our work would not be possible. Every gift is important and makes a difference. Please support us through your giving and your prayers. Thank you!

Your gift will be used in accordance with the Presbyterian Mission Agency gift acceptance policy which can be found at 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.

  2. 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.

  5. 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.
