Mission and Outreach Work Group Goals

  3. To provide experiential/hands on opportunities to go and see what God is doing beyond our comfort zone, equipping God’s Children to serve in local and global communities.
  4. To learn about existing partnerships within our presbytery.
  5. To explore a variety of models that seek to empower and equip God’s children in diverse economic realities.
  6. To connect with the General Assembly Presbyterian Mission Agency and other agencies both local and international.
