In continued missional partnership with the Presbytery of the Coast of the Presbyterian Church in Colombia, the Presbytery of Seattle is sending a team of 13 ruling and teaching elders to Barranquilla on Jan. 23.
Participants will be spending time and working alongside displaced campesinos that the church has helped relocate to new farmlands. The team will also visit missional communities that local presbyterian churches have established to serve those in need and participate in several workshops at the Reformed University (led by professors Tali Hairston and Lindy Scott) on the role of the church in the peace process and reconciliation within latin american politics.
