    70th World Missions Conference:  Our Faithful God

    World Missions is happy to announce that conference will be held in person this year—with some virtual events included.  A special feature at this year’s conference will be the celebration of our partners who have spent their lives in service to God’s kingdom work overseas.  They are Dave and Gwen, Jay and Maureen, Joe and Ann, Jeff and Mischa, and Susan.  First Presbyterian Church has supported these missionaries for a collective 173 years.  Please pray for them as they transition to their retirement years. They have a wealth of experience and knowledge that will continue to be of great value to the kingdom.  

  • Give/pledge 2021

    World Missions is funded by the Faith Promise Giving of our members and friends.  Your funds in Year 2021 will provide support for 32 career missionary units, 10 indigenous church planters, training and coaching initiatives, relief and development projects, Bible translation, multi-media seminary curriculum, international student ministry, and administrative services required to manage the ministry.
