Global Outreach

One of the best ways to find meaning and purpose in life is to serve others. At First Presbyterian, we serve others globally so we can uphold the principles that define us: shared grace and thanksgiving, mutuality and interdependence, recognition and respect, open dialogue and transparency, and sharing of resources.

With mission teams supporting ministries ranging from Eastern North Carolina to Haiti, Russia, Cuba, and the Yucatan in Mexico, people just like you help to develop churches, schools, pastors, and medical clinics; equip Presbyterian missionaries; and build powerful relationships with your brothers and sisters in Christ around the globe.

Wondering how you can help with the crisis in Ukraine?

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. PDA has trusted, established partners on the ground who have the knowledge and expertise to help.
To support emergency relief for those fleeing Ukraine, give online at pcusa.org/UK22 or text PDAUKR to 41444.

Haiti

Outreach for Christ in Bayonnais (OFCB) serves a remote mountain valley, working with two schools, a clinic and the local church. You can participate in mission trips once or twice a year.

Cuba

We support the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Matanzas. The ecumenical seminary educates ministers and lay people in Cuba, where a generation of citizens has not experienced open worship opportunities and is now freely sharing their faith in God, their support of the church, and their love of their neighbors.

Mexico

Accion Ministries and VIM (Villa Infantil Maya or The Mayan Children’s Village) provide residential care for poor children from the surrounding villages where there are no middle or high schools, as well as a few children who are orphaned or live under difficult situations.

Ryazan, Russia

Despite religious persecution and economic difficulties, Hope Baptist Church is a growing and thriving ministry. You can participate in mission trips every few years.

Recently, the Belarus Ukraine Russia Mission (BURM) met for its annual network conference. You can read the highlights from the conference below.
