2018 WMI trip to Colombia

Colombia: Cultures of Violence, Culture of Peace

The Rev. Dr. John Welch, dean of students, and the Rev. Dr. Hunter Farrell, director of the World Mission Initiative, will accompany PTS students and congregation mission leaders to the Reformed University in Barranquilla, Colombia, to understand the history of violence in that South American nation, the impact of violence on local communities, and the Presbyterian Church of Colombia’s persevering work to nurture a culture of peace with justice. 


Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is preparing students in the way of Jesus.



Watch as trip leader John Welch explains why he's excited to lead students to Colombia.

Choose a giving level


Encourage Me!

Students and others are able to participate in a World Mission Initiative mission opportunity because they are encouraged by a classmate, professor, WMI staff member, and especially because of the financial support they are promised. Thank you for strengthening this promise through your gift of support!


Equip Me!

Participants gather for three pre-trip preparation sessions before they leave for peoples and places completely new to them. Your gift equips students to go into the world with spiritual readiness and cross-cultural awareness.


Pack Me!

WMI encourages participants to "pack light" by leaving behind both items and attitudes that might hinder their witness. Your gift resources participants with what they really need both in their suitcases and in their hearts - humility, faith, and love - as they participate in God's mission.


Pray for Me!

WMI sends participants with a strong foundation of prayer and with confidence in the promise of the Holy Spirit's presence. Your gift of support for participants' travel costs gives tangible testimony to the strong prayer support that surrounds them as well.


Mobilize Me!

Participants are mobilized into God's mission in a lasting way when they form relationships, as happens through Christian partners around the globe who welcome WMI trip participants to join them in ministry. Your gift gives participants the opportunity to form lasting relationships with church leaders around the world.


Send Me!

Your gift encourages, equips, packs, prays for, and mobilizes participants well on their way to participating in what Jesus Christ is up to in another part of God's world! Thank you for sending participants from PTS on a life-changing, ministry-shaping World Mission Initiative trip!
