International Ministries is the department of the Life and Mission Agency responsible for the relationships between The Presbyterian Church in Canada and overseas partner churches and agencies. The most visible way in which we relate to our partners is the appointment of Canadian Presbyterians to a variety of short or longer term assignments. The recruitment, preparation and support of these mission personnel is our responsibility. Two other ways in which we accompany our partner churches is through leadership development programs, as well as funding programs and special projects.

The Presbyterian Church in Canada’s strategic plan upholds relational connections that incarnate Christ’s mission at the local, national and international level. International Ministries is in the privileged position of being the point of connection with people and church partners around the globe whose vision and Christian faith inspire and give cause for celebration. Watching world news can make one fearful and full of despair. Being in relationship with people who live on the front lines of fear and tragedy, and still proclaim their faith in word and deed is a gift of the Creator. May we celebrate and take heart in our shared humanity, shared trials and common hope in Jesus Christ.
