people to fall in love with Jesus locally and around the world is a core value
of WEPC. To do this, we partner with
people and organizations whose geographical position and/or specialized
skills allow them to share the gospel in ways that extend the physical reach of
the local church body. For one international and one local mission
organization, we are committed to providing hands-on support. For all supported missions, we pray,
encourage, and offer financial support to help them share the gospel in ways
that WEPC could not do alone.
Sponsoring Missions Abroad
San Miguel School Project
After much prayer and consideration, in 2015 WEPC began a long-term connection with the San Miguel school in the Dominican Republic. Besides prayer and financial support, we have committed to taking teams to this site for whatever work is needed at the time. Our first team was able to work on moving the school to a new building in July 16-23, 2016. During 2017, two more trips are planned. At present, 6 people from Presby are planning to travel and work there April 1-8, 2017. Preliminary plans are underway for the next team to travel June 24-July 1, 2017.
