Great Commission Ministry Team

The Great Commission Team (GCT) website of Pittsburgh Presbytery is designed to connect local congregations with one another so congregations, groups and individuals who have an interest in mission can coordinate their efforts in order to reach local and global mission opportunities for Jesus Christ.

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations.....and surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18, 20

Expand the Mission Outlook of Your Congregation

In 2014, The Great Commission Team of Pittsburgh Presbytery is offering monthly newsletter articles for congregational use.   These articles will be prepared in a timely, useful, and succinct manner, focusing each month on a different local mission connection.  These connections include local missionaries, mission agencies, church groups, the World Mission Initiative, the Lazarus Fund, and others.  All they need from your congregation is the invitation for The Great Commission Team to add you to their mailing list in order to send these articles for use in your church newsletter.  Our hope is to help congregations expand their mission outlook! If you would like to be added, please email the Rev. Ayana Teter, Associate Minister for Outreach, or call her at 412-323-1403.

World Mission Needs Help Finding Candidates for Mission Service

Presbyterian World Mission leaders are asking Presbyterians across the country to help them find qualified candidates for international mission service. Nineteen mission positions are now available and more will be posted in coming days, according to Nancy Cavalcante, mission service recruitment coordinator for Presbyterian World Mission. Filling these positions is crucial if the church is to meet the General Assembly Council's goal of increasing the number of mission co-workers for the first time in 50 years, she says.
