Our International Mission Partners

BMPC has a rich history of being deeply invested in international missions and working with the PC(USA) on carrying God’s love and mercy into the global community. We are the home to dozens of retired Presbyterian missionaries who have spent over 250 years of combined ministry to peoples and countries around the globe including the Congo, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, Zimbabwe, India, Indonesia many more countries.

Guatemala Partnership

Guatemala MapWe have a long deep relationship with EbenEzer Church, our partner church in Guatemala. EbenEzer is in the town of San Antonio.

For the past 20 years, members from BMPC have gone to visit our sisters and brothers at EbenEzer in Guatemala, and members from EbenEzer church have come visited with us in NC. The partnership is based on a mutual learning from each other.

In 2013 we took an eight day intergenerational trip of four adults and four high school youth to Guatemala to be with our partner church. This year one or two of our youth are going with the Presbytery Youth Delegation to Guatemala.

In addition to over a dozen visits back and forth over the past 20 years, our partnership also includes a scholarship program where we help send 20 young people to school, and partner those young Guatemalan students with our children and youth to be pen pals, writing letters back and forth, developing relationships.

At the request of our brothers and sisters at EbenEzer, we have also helped supply water filters to assure clean water many of the people of San Antonio.

One of the gifts of the connectional nature of the Presbyterian Church is that not only is our local church connected to a local church in Guatemala, Presbyterian churches all over Western NC are partnered to and connected with Presbyterian churches all over the Suchitepéquez and Sur Occidente areas of Guatemala.
