Presbyterian World Mission Giving Opportunities 2015-2016

Presbyterian World Mission Giving Opportunities Catalog 2015-2016

For 178 years, Presbyterian World Mission has been making a lasting difference for the sake of Christ. In the following pages, you can see how Presbyterian Mission workers engage in transformative ministries around the world today. You also can catch a glimpse of the faithful work of missionaries from the past.

For example, in the Asia and the Pacific section, you can read about Horace G. Underwood, a strong advocate for indigenous church leadership who arrived in Korea in 1885. His work helped build a healthy church that expanded across the peninsula. Arriving in the 1950s, Sam and Eileen Moffett helped Korean Presbyterianism grow in size and commitment. South Korea now has the world’s largest Presbyterian population. Today the vibrant faith of Korean Presbyterians helps shape the spiritual journey of PC(USA) Young Adult Volunteers (YAVs). Mission co-workers Kurt Esslinger and Hyeyoung Lee, a married couple, mentor these YAVs as they serve alongside Korean partners and experience new depths of Christian discipleship.

Our hope is that you will pray regularly for our mission co-workers and give generously so that pressing needs around the world will be met. We are grateful for your past support and look forward to continuing our partnership with you and beginning new relationships. 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.

  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.
