March 9, 2012


The “Mission Handbook” was developed by the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic Men’s Council and its Mission Committee to assist, educate, and engage Presbyterian Men in mission for the Glory of God. The Handbook is divided into eight sections for easy reference:

1.   Purpose of Mission  Pg 2

2.   Prayer as a Cornerstone of Mission  Pg 3

3.   Kenya Mission Trip  Pg 12

4.   Synod of the Mid-Atlantic Pg 17

     5.   National Council of Presbyterian Men Pg 29

     6.   General Assembly Mission Council Pg 32

     7.   Presbyterian Scouters Pg 33

     8.   More Mission Opportunities Pg  36


The Handbook is intended to be "user friendly" offering some suggestions and opportunities, but is not intended to be all inclusive. This edition is an update of the previous Handbook.  The Handbook is also available on our website ( ) .


As a suggestion to help communicate the information in the Handbook, set up a breakfast meeting

with one or more representatives from Presbyterian Men's groups and introduce the Mission Handbook to them. Several similar meetings might be arranged throughout the year.  Another suggestion is to hand out mission flyers at men’s meetings to advocate Presbyterian Men getting into mission and directing them to our website. Mission flyers are available to download from the website.


23 Whatever your task, put yourself into it, as done for the Lord and not for your masters, 24 since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3: 23-24  New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

In Jesus Christ,
