Webinar on Shared Ministry by National Guard and Reserves Chaplains Serving Congregations

PCCMP logo.jpeg

Did you miss the webinar conducted by the Presbyterian Council for Chaplains and Military PersonnelWatch the recording explaining the potential for finding leadership for your congregations among Guard and Reserve chaplains. There’s a need for more mainline ministers among military chaplains, and a need for pastoral leadership for many churches, especially those who cannot currently support a full-time pastor; both needs might be met by the same person.

Learn More about the Malawi Mission Partnership

The Presbytery of Denver is engaged in vital mission! Our mission takes place as congregations come together to form mission partnerships, covenant communities, or task forces addressing a specific need. In order to celebrate the wonderful work already being done in our Presbytery and to encourage churches to join existing partnerships or start new ones, we will be highlighting our congregational partnerships in our newsletter.

Below you'll find a link to the Malawi Mission Partnership video. Please take the opportunity to learn what our churches are doing. Consider whether or not the Holy Spirit might be calling your congregation to join these marvelous efforts already underway or perhaps to launch an entirely new mission partnership.

The Malawi Mission Partnership seeks to empower pastors near the capital city of Lilongwe with ongoing education for ministry and with food security for their families.  Did you know that 85% of pastors worldwide have no more than a 6th grade education?  Our Mission Partnership is working with Veritas College in Malawi to provide 35 pastors in one village with 2 years of training on how to accurately interpret and teach the Bible.  Each of these pastors must also raise maize to feed their families.  So we recently funded a 2-day training on how to plant maize in a manner that resists drought while also enriching the soil.  We have great hopes for how this whole village will benefit from our support of their pastors.  

  • Participating Churches:  First Leadville and Trinity.
