Presbyterian Mission Agency PC (USA)
Presbyterian Mission is the national ministry arm of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the largest of the PC(USA)’s six General Assembly agencies. We joyfully partner with congregations, mid councils, worshiping communities, mission networks and many other groups to nurture and support Christ’s disciples wherever the Holy Spirit leads and the General Assembly directs us.
Presbyterian Mission’s goal is to inspire, equip and connect the church in three main areas: evangelism and discipleship, servant leader formation, and justice and reconciliation. We do this work through four ministry areas:
Compassion, Peace & Justice
Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries
Theology, Formation & Evangelism
