The Presbytery and Area Churches Welcome Mission Co-Workers from Zambia

All are invited to join the Presbytery of Philadelphia, Carmel, and Wallingford Presbyterian Churches in welcoming Charles and Melissa Johnson, Mission co-workers in Zambia.

Charles and Melissa Johnson have been invited to help the Church of Central Africa, Presbyterian Zambia Synod expand its holistic ministry of community development, food security and improved health. A major part of Charles’ position as a Development Specialist is teaching sustainable agriculture to students at Chasefu Theological College and developing Chasefu Farm. The farm feeds the students, trains smallholders in sustainable agriculture, and generates revenue to support CTC and the farm itself.

Melissa serves in the Health Department as Health Education Program Facilitator. She is responsible for working with health related stakeholders to identify important needs and gaps in the general population’s health education, and to facilitate training programs. They will discuss the partnership between PCUSA and CCAP, and will focus on the impact the collaboration is having on congregations and individuals in the U.S., as well as on the communities they serve in Zambia.
