Synod Announces New Mission Coordinator

We are excited and delighted to welcome the Rev. Margaret Mitsuyasu as the Synod’s new Mission Coordinator.

The Mission Coordinator position was created to address our growing need for dedicated staff support to provide resourcing and relationship to those interested in applying for Innovation and Higher Education Grants, and follow up once applicants have received a grant. The position also includes oversight of the Synod’s communication strategy, as we seek to share and celebrate the stories of our Innovation Grantees, Networks, mission partners, campus ministries, new gospel communities, presbytery support, and many other endeavors with our whole Synod community. We believe Margaret will bring love, enthusiasm, and clarity to this work, helping us to continue embodying the commitments of our Way Forward.

Youth Previously Nurtured Turn to Nurture a New Generation of Leaders

With the guidance of the Rev. Victor Aloyo, Pastor at la Iglesia Presbiteriana Nuevas Fronteras in Plainfield, NJ, Acción Presbiteriana is being revamped to meet those needs. “In conversations with parents and ministers in churches that are in survival mode, we have come together as a larger community to develop a platform that is more relevant to this generation of youth and emerging leaders,” says Aloyo. “We hear so many reports about how many youth are leaving the church, and we know that many emerging leaders are dissatisfied and disillusioned with the structure of the church that impedes growth and relationship building. So we are doing our part to walk alongside youth and young adults.”
