PCC MISSION MOMENTS Working with international mission partners

Effective mission partnership is a covenant relationship between people who are striving to bring about God’s realm of justice and peace. In 2017, gifts to Presbyterians Sharing provided some of the PCC’s international partners with 30 grants totaling $320,000. These grants supported Bible translation in Nigeria and Mauritius; women’s pastoral programs in Guatemala; biblical, theological and pastoral training in Mauritius and Guatemala; theological seminaries in Lebanon, Malawi and Romania; lay training centres in Ghana and Malawi; refugee programs in Lebanon and Palestine; and medical centres in India. Mission and vital world-wide ministry partnerships that put people first happen because of the faithful generosity of Presbyterians across Canada. Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing allow our church to be with those on the margins and change lives around the world. Presbyterians Sharing supports international partnerships because they matter
