Finding opportunities to get involved with MNA
“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? “Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8)
Our purpose is to encourage individuals and teams in the Body of Christ to serve others in word and deed through short term missions, disaster response and second career service. Serving as a ministry matchmaker, we have placed more than 70,000 individuals in short and longer-term places of service in just a few short years.
MNA ShortTerm Missions
MNA ShortTerm Missions works for you in the following ways:
- identifies PCA churches, mission churches and PCA-led ministries within North America that can be strengthened and expanded by effective mercy and outreach ministries with the assistance of short term mission volunteers. (Projects are determined by local leadership and could include a variety of options such as light construction, VBS, backyard Bible clubs, sports camps, community movie night in the park, English as a Second Language (ESL) schools, prayer walks, personal evangelism, and conducting day camps for first or second generation immigrant children through Bible study, arts and crafts, drama, and personal testimonies.)
- identifies PCA churches and presbyteries that are committed to assisting other churches and ministries in both Word and deed ministries through the provision of volunteers and resources
- MNA ShortTerm Missions works primarily on an informal basis, linking the opportunity presented by the local church or ministry with individuals and teams from churches and other organizations that can assist with meeting the needs.
MNA Disaster Response
By General Assembly assignment Mission to North America Disaster Response coordinates the response of the Presbyterian Church in America to disasters in the US and Canada. We serve the churches and presbyteries of the PCA by assisting in reaching out to people in need as a result of hurricanes, tornados, floods, fires, earthquakes or man-induced calamities. We strive to organize churches and presbyteries in disaster preparedness, enabling them to respond to disasters in the spirit of God’s grace and mercy.
The purpose of MNA Second Career is to provide opportunities for a changing workforce made up of individuals and couples who are open to a new career calling where they can exercise their gifts to advance and strengthen the Kingdom. A significant part of the vision for this ministry is to match the skills and abilities of individuals who have an already established means of income and support with church planters as they begin to establish their churches in communities across the continent. The term and scope of service is varied and includes longer terms of service based upon the desire of the local ministry leadership.
