Pittsburgh Hosting, October 2018 - Celebrating Nearly Three Decades of Partnership in Mission
The International Partnership of Pittsburgh Presbytery is excited for the opportunity to welcome and host 22 missionaries from Malawi and as many as four missionaries from South Sudan.
The theme of this years trip is Personal Spiritual Practices That Lead to Congregational Revitalization.
How do the simple things that we do in our own faith journey - reading the scripture, caring for the poor, worshiping together - allow us to grow into congregations that are vital and healthy?
Our Tripartite Partnership offers us a rare glimpse into other cultures and practices.
Please join us as we serve our communities and learn and grow in our relationship with each other and with our Lord Jesus Christ.
