We believe that God is already active in the world, transforming lives, liberating the oppressed, bringing an end to injustice and lifting people up. Our calling is to respond to the movement of the Holy Spirit, to share our gifts freely and to respond to the needs of our neighbors as we work as disciples of Jesus Christ, and join in the mission of God, no matter where it takes us.

Global Mission

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, Kenya (click here for more information) and in the Kilambe region of Nicaragua (click here for more information). We also provide financial support through benevolences to several Presbyterian and ecumenical missions, as well as offering many opportunities to act locally. Finally, we send out mission teams in response to natural disasters such as Hurricane Iota while our youth participate in a variety of missions each summer. 


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 Rosemary Klein.

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.
