The Church’s Mission and Ministry in Ghana
Your gifts to Presbyterians Sharing help connect people in
Canada with long-term mission partners through mission
trips. More than an ordinary trip, a mission trip is a spiritual
journey that can transform the lives of participants. In
November 2012, a group from the Presbytery of West
Toronto visited PCC partners in Ghana with PCC Mission
Trip Coordinator, Matt Foxall. The group was hosted by
our partner church, The Presbyterian Church of Ghana.
Participants discovered the depth and breadth of this
Church’s mission and ministry and offered encouragement
and support along the way. They also visited projects
supported by Presbyterian World Service & Development
and Presbyterians Sharing.
