  • Why Support World Missions at First Presbyterian Church

    World Missions is the foreign missions arm of First Presbyterian Church tasked with making disciples in the world—facilitated through the targeted selection and funding of missionaries, indigenous church planters, short-term teams, and projects that promote the establishment, growth, and maturation of indigenous-led churches and movements in strategic global cities. The Mission of First Presbyterian Church is to carry out our part of the Great Commission.

  • Introducing our New Mission Partner Cristina Smith

    Cristina grew up a missionary kid in Spain, Equatorial Guinea, and Cameroon.  She was appointed a Wycliffe missionary in November 2020—assigned to Wycliffe Spain where she will serve as an Instructor/Linguist/Literary Technician.  Her main role will be to train people for work in Bible translation in Wycliffe Spain’s MA program and assist missionary teams in Scripture engagement projects and literacy.  In addition, Cristina will be involved with communications and the promotion of Wycliffe Spain’s Applied Linguistics Masters program.  Prior to her missionary appointment, Cristina used her Spanish language skills in local Hispanic ministries, created a Scripture APP for the Apalaí (Brazil),  and volunteered as a training instructor for Wycliffe Spain—teaching annual modular courses, “Morphology & Syntax” and “Literacy & Scripture Use Software.”  Cristina is a member of First Pres Chattanooga and a third generation missionary.  Her parents, Scott and Margaret Smith, currently serve with Wycliffe/SIL in Spain and Equatorial Guinea; and her grandparents, Ed and Sally Koehn, are retired Wycliffe missionaries to Brazil who translated the Apalaí Bible.

  • Introducing our New Partners Jeremy and Angel Martin

    Jeremy and Angel Martin joined the Serge team at the invitation of New Life Masih Ghar in the London suburb of Southall in late 2019—having previously served with Mission to the World in Uganda and Belize.  Jeremy’s focus is 1) sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through mercy ministries and service, and 2) discipling and training local men to grow a vibrant diaconate that will meet the practical needs of the NLMG community and the Southall neighborhood.  Angel assists the team in various ministries including the Heston Youth Club (where First Pres youth teams have served), Parent and Toddlers, and women’s Bible studies.  Jeremy and Angel are parents to three daughters.
