Serving Around the WorldFrom Africa, India, Albania and Indonesia to Malawi, Honduras, Central Asia and Turkey, we believe we are all God’s children. That’s why PCLG is involved in helping others all over the globe.
Since 2001, our PCLG youth, college students, and numerous adult advisors have built more than 30 homes in Mexico through Amor Ministries. As Christians we are all called to discover new ways to put our faith into action. Our goal at PCLG is to help you on your journey–and for us to do it together. In February, our high school group takes a team, and in June, this mission project is open to the whole PCLG church community. What a great way to put your faith into action.

Mark and Ruth Stoscher
Mark and Ruth Stoscher have been missionaries in Albania with Alongside Ministries International since 1994. Mark, a former Youth Pastor at PCLG, is the pastor of the Erseka Evangelical Church and Director of Torchbearers-Albania. This former communist country is still very open to the Gospel, and exciting things are happening there. Their ministry has a camping program which draws over 1,000 Albanian young people each summer.
Near East School of Theology
The Near East School of Theology is an interconfessional Protestant seminary in Beirut, Lebanon. It is one of few places where Middle East Christians can send their young people to become pastors. The primary purpose of the school is to train pastors and church workers for ministry in the churches and other evangelical organizations in the Middle East. Dr. Mary Mikhael, NEST’s President, is an outstanding scholar and a dedicated Christian; she wrote the Presbyterian Women’s study guide for 2009-2010 on the book of Joshua. The PC (USA) position at NEST is now filled by Carol Dolezal-Ng, from the Presbytery of San Francisco. Carol visited our church for Adult Education in 2009.
Sabeel is the Christian non-violent peace movement in Palestine, which seeks to deepen the faith of Palestinian Christians, promote unity among them, and lead them to social action.
Rev. Naim Ateek is an outstanding scholar and a fervent worker for peace in the Middle East. PCLG has had a long relationship with Sabeel, having attended many of the Sabeel peace conferences in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
