Presbyterian Church of Taiwan
The Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) and the Presbyterian Church in Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) share a valued relationship. There have been many reciprocal visits of ministers, and youth exchanges. The PCT has always maintained a strong emphasis on evangelism, social ministries, practical service and social advocacy. These have been features of the partnership between our churches. The PCT and PCANZ are members of the Council for World Mission and the Christian Conference of Asia.
There are opportunities for youth programmes and exchanges with the PCT:
I Love Taiwan
PCANZ enjoys a warm partnership with the Presbyterian Church of Taiwan (PCT). Each year the PCT hosts a dynamic programme called I Love Taiwan, which attracts youth from all over the world, who share in the PCT’s youth and children’s ministry and learn about the unique culture of Taiwan. Global Mission supports applicants from PCANZ churches to attend this programme, which runs in Taiwan from June 26 – July 13. PCANZ applicants need to be at least 18 years old and require PCANZ endorsement to qualify for the $500 travel subsidy. Information about the programme is here. The online application is here. Once you receive your full application form from the PCT, email Global Mission Coordinator Phil King to request PCANZ endorsement and to apply for the travel subsidy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The relationships that we have with PCT provides many exciting opportunities and challenges and are immensely rewarding. Members of the PCANZ who have an interest in exploring mission opportunities with the PCT are invited to contact the Global Mission Coordinator Phil King, email@example.com.
