Mission Conversations: Indonesia
The Mission and Outreach Work Group of the San Jose Presbytery will sponsor monthly conversations with global and local mission partners.
Thursday September 10 at 5:00 p.m. we will meet with Rev. Martin Kristanto Nugroho who serves as the pastor of an Indonesian church (GKI Bondowoso) in East Java, Indonesia.
During the San Jose Presbytery mission trip in 2016 he organized an interfaith dialog with the local Muslim communities. In collaboration with GKI San Jose, his church is actively supporting some Christian villages with farming tools. When visiting California in 2017, he shared some insights as follow up to our mission trip.
Pastor Martin is also the organizer of the annual intercultural youth gathering, “Beyond Border Vacation Camp”, which were attended by some youth in our Presbytery.
Pastor Martin and several Indonesian pastors will give a short presentation and there will be time for questions.
