Appointed as a PC(USA) mission co-worker in October, 2009, Josh is regional liaison for West Africa. He facilitates support for the programs, relationships, and activities of PC(USA) partners. And he also provides support to PC(USA) mission personnel and helps connect partner churches with PC(USA) churches that want to be involved in ministry in the region.
West Africa has tremendous challenges. Niger, for instance, is the poorest country in the world. But the Christian churches of West Africa are some of the most dynamic on the continent, and they are committed to addressing the many problems that people of faith confront. The PC(USA) has partnerships with churches in three countries in West Africa. In Ghana, where our historical roots go back many years, PC(USA) maintains partnerships with two denominations, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana. PC(USA) also has newer partnerships with the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria and the EvangelicalChurch of the Republic of Niger. Josh will be responsible for maintaining relationships with all these partner churches.
