Global Service

Northminster is actively engaged in global missions in multiple ways: supporting Presbyterian Shared Missions; directed funding of missionaries; a covenant of partnership with the developing Cobán Presbyterian Church; and endowments to support Northminster young adults starting in full-time Christian ministry.

Presbyterian Shared Mission. For over 200 years, Presbyterians have been responding to the call of Jesus Christ, taking the gospel into all the world and bearing witness to Christ’s saving love to the ends of the earth. Today the Holy Spirit is still on the move, calling us to share in what God is doing in the world. Northminster, and other Presbyterian Churches, send undesignated funds to share collectively in mission through the Presbyterian Mission Agency.

The Presbyterian Mission Agency is the ministry and mission agency of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The Presbyterian Mission Agency includes four areas of work: Compassion, Peace and Justice; Racial Ethnic & Women’s Ministries; Theology, Formation and Evangelism; and World Mission.

Northminster joins other Presbyterian churches to support the many missions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Disaster relief, such as responding to needs of those in West Virginia whose homes wererichard-and-debbie-welch-guatemala damaged or destroyed, is an important part of the mission. Another part of the mission is support for mission co-workers in countries around the world. For example, Richard and Debbie Welch are helping indigenous
people in Guatemala gain access to primary, vocational, and theological education.
