PC(USA) GA Supported Missionaries

The featured missionaries are those who are currently or have recently been supported by PEVA member churches. Each of these missionaries are featured for “Designated Giving” selection when churches do their annual unified and designated giving decisions.

If you do not find the missionary which you choose to support, go to www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/mission-connections If you find a missionary that you prefer to support, you may donate to that missionaries ministry by citing “Designated Giving Code 2999” and putting the missionaries name and project number on your remittance form or pledge form.  You can also request that PEVA establish a "Designated Giving" code for that missionary to make your remittances easier.

Funds remitted to PEVA under the “Designated Giving Code” are consolidated with those of all the churches supporting a selected missionary and forwarded to PC (USA) approximately every month citing which church contributed to the support of which missionary.  


The Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA) now invites the whole church to use one fund, General Sending and Support, "E132192, to support PC(USA)’s 80 mission co-workers to demonstrate this shared commitment.  You may donate to that General Fund on the church remittance form by citing “Designated Giving Code 2999 - General Missionary Support”.  Donors can still make gifts "in honor of" individual co-workers.
