Cultivating The Kingdom: Navigating North America’s Cultural Shifts

December 15, 2023

For over 50 years the Lord has been pleased to use Mission to North America to cultivate the advancement of his kingdom through the Presbyterian Church in America. A new challenge is before us. North America finds itself in the fastest decline in church attendance and most rapidly diversifying of ethnic culture in history.


MNA believes these shifts bring great opportunity for gospel impact! Our church has the chance to proclaim the gospel to the nations and impact the world without leaving these shores. Join us as we discuss the unique cultural needs of the day and the answer to that need in church vitality and church planting. The Lord is on the move, and we are committed to laboring for the cause of the kingdom.
