2012 MNA Thanksgiving Offering
Mentoring leaders for our diverse communities
The MNA Thanksgiving Offering provides grants to help support those who have been called by God to minister to ethnically diverse communities across the nation – people groups who are currently not well served by the PCA. Featured in the brochure are individuals who have received support from the Thanksgiving Offering to help provide their training for ministry leadership. These are just a few of the many men and women who have received support through your faithful giving each year.
Jamid Jiminez was serving as a pastor in Colombia, South America, when his life was threatened by guerillas. Granted asylum in the United States, Jamid settled in Coral Gables FL but wasn’t able to continue his ministry and found work in construction. In 2001, he and his wife were driving home from church when they passed
Granada Presbyterian and decided to check it out.
“Granada welcomed us with open arms,” says Jamid, who, as part
of Granada’s growing Hispanic ministry, soon began seminary
studies and learned English through the church’s English as a Second
Language program. The Thanksgiving Offering helped support
Jamid in his studies and provided income for his family while he was
in school. In November 2001, Granada launched its first Hispanic
service; today, Jamid serves as Spanish Ministry Pastor and has a role
in the church’s thriving Hispanic ministry.
