Our Global Mission Involvement
Knox is committed to the national and international mission work of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. To that end, in 2016 our goal is to give at least $30,200 to Presbyterians Sharing, the denomination’s budget. That budget supports such things as hospital and university chaplains in Canada, building new congregations, supporting Aboriginal ministry in Canada, translating the Bible into different languages abroad, and sending mission personnel as theological teachers or medical doctors to the developing world. See the video produced byt he Presbyterian Church in Canada entilted "Your Gifts in Action". (2017)" (93 mb)
Knox has been very generous toward this fund this year to date, having given approximately 75% of our 2017 goal of $33,000. So we are well on our way to achieving our goal. You are encouraged to continue to be a part of reaching our target by the end of the year.
In addition, Knox supports the global ministry of Presbyterian World Service and Development [PWS&D]. PWS&D does two things: long-term development in the Third World, whether village wells in Ethiopia, agricultural development in India, or child and maternal health in Malawi. PWS&D also responds immediately to world emergencies, usually working cooperatively with other church agencies. You will often find on our website, a specific appeal to support PWS&D projects.
