A Florida man has given a large donation to the global missions arm of the largest Presbyterian denomination in the country.
Jim Davis, member of the Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, gave $1 million to Presbyterian World Mission to support mission work in Egypt.
“Half of the gift will be used to help the Egyptian church construct new churches in underserved areas,” said Kathy Melvin, director of mission communications with the Presbyterian Mission Agency, to The Christian Post on Friday.
“The other half will provide context sensitive theological education to train leaders for these new congregations and support the teaching ministries of Presbyterian mission workers teaching at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo.”
Hunter Farrell, director of World Mission, said in a statement provided to CP that Davis’ donation is crucial to the organization’s missional efforts.
“We praise God and are deeply grateful for this visionary and generous gift from Davis that allows us to grow the Christian church in Egypt,” said Farrell.
“Without a leadership gift like this, Presbyterian World Mission would be unable to respond to this unprecedented opportunity.”
