THE WORLD MISSION MINISTRY builds support for mission co-workers, educates leaders, and provides engagement in God’s mission through presbytery trips to Haiti and Guatemala.
World Mission Ministry connects congregations with Presbyterian World Mission, with a special focus on Cindy Corell in Haiti, and also with a shared mission initiative with Peaks Presbytery in Guatemala.
World Mission Ministry also promotes and financially supports the Young Adult Volunteer program.
Sunday with Cindy: Haiti Update
Shortly after the assassination of the president and resulting political chaos, Haiti experienced a 7.2 earthquake, aftershocks, and then Tropical Storm Grace which hit the same area. Thousands of Haitians have fled to the Mexico/US border, many have been deported, and the suffering has no end in sight. On October 17, Cindy Corell and her mission partner in Haiti, Fabienne Jean, visited us virtually, to share info about the continuing crisis in Haiti and how Presbyterian partners are seeking to respond.
