The Outreach Foundation seeks to engage Presbyterians in Christ-centered evangelistic mission for the salvation of humankind. Through relationships with missionaries and projects with global partners, we help to create and sustain mission partnerships that build up the body of Christ for God's mission in the U.S. and around the world. Because our ministry is Kingdom work, not denominational work, we work with PC(USA), EPC, ECO, Fellowship Community congregations and others. We help congregations build long-term partnerships with the global church that are mutually transformational. Every person, project and partnership we support is directly involved in sharing the Gospel in word and deed.
