Serve Globally

Going beyond our own community

At First Pres, our global mission work is anchored in three main activities. 


The biggest and longest-standing of these is the Guatemala Partnership, a multifaceted effort to help a Mayan presbytery in southwestern Guatemala address the root causes of poverty. 

Gift Fair

The second anchor, our annual Alternative Gift Fair, promotes fair trade and directs donations to charitable organizations both global and domestic, while also helping to fund global mission activities at First Pres. 

Mission Partners

Finally, we provide financial support to an array of global mission partners who help the victims of war, disaster, poverty and injustice and provide true Christian witness in disadvantaged parts of the world.

Our global mission work also includes financial support of international organizations and efforts. These include:
PC(USA) International Mission Co-workers

Our mission coworkers can be found in Africa (Jeff and Christi Boyd), Peru (Jed and Jenny Koball) and Guatemala (Leslie Vogel).
