Global Missions

DCPC strives to recognize our interconnection to brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world, and to increase our understanding of the world through outreach and education. We wish to work for justice, peace, humanitarian relief, and reconciliation as called for by the Gospel. We are eager to establish personal relationships between community members across international lines as we build a personal, living bridge globally.

The Global Missions Committee fosters our relationships with our partners at the Sigona Presbyterian Church in Kikuyu, Kenyaand in the Kilambe region of Nicaragua.

 

In in the summer of  2023,  journeys were made to Kenya and Nicaragua and in 2024, we will visit Nicaragua and our partners from Kenya will visit us in Davidson.

Locally we offer the opportunity to support refugees who have moved to our area.  Currently we are working with two refugee families from Afghanistan.  Click here to learn more.

We also provide financial support through benevolences to several Presbyterian and ecumenical missions.

 

Our committee is comprised of both adult and youth members of DCPC. We are always looking for new members to serve on this important group. If you would like to get involved, please click here to email Robert Alexander.

The Global Mission Committee at DCPC has three primary goals:

  • Educating the congregation about the global mission of the church in general and DCPC in particular.

  • Coordinating global mission activities that involve our members in hands-on mission. experiences around the world.

  • Contributing funds from our Global Mission budget to worthy ministries among our mission partners.
