But those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life. —John 4:14

For more than 200 years, Presbyterians have been responding to the call of Jesus Christ, proclaiming and living out their faith, calling the church to do justice, and inviting all who thirst to drink the water of eternal life.

Today, the Holy Spirit is still on the move, calling us to share in what God is doing in the world. As your partner in Christ’s service and the mission arm of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Presbyterian Mission Agency is faithfully working to inspire, equip, and connect all Presbyterians to do Christ’s mission, bringing together congregations, worshiping communities, mission networks, and other parts of the church ecosystem as they nurture and shape disciples and serve Christ in the world.

We share the love of Christ by working with you to eradicate hunger, support farmers, train peacemakers, educate children, assist with disaster recovery, end human trafficking, encourage cultural humility, engage in theological conversation, and raise up diverse leaders to meet the needs of a changing world—all while proclaiming the good news of God’s saving grace.

As you’ll read in the Annual Report, our work is shared among four ministry areas that together help carry out our mission to inspire, equip, and connect Presbyterians to serve Christ in the world: Compassion, Peace and Justice; Racial Ethnic & Women’s Ministries; Theology, Formation, and Evangelism; and World Mission.

As you see the faces and read the stories of the many dedicated people who partner with us, we hope that you will see yourself among the thousands of mission co-workers, facilitators, pastors, teachers, professors, volunteers, and members of mission networks who are sharing Christ’s hope and healing. We hope that you will be inspired to join with us in God’s mission for the transformation of the world. You can learn more by visiting our website at presbyterianmission.org or by finding many of our mission areas on Facebook and Twitter. We look forward to connecting with you as together we drink deeply of Christ’s living water and call the world to join with us.
