2015 Mission Plans
   
 


The mission of the Latin American Mission Partnership (LAMP) is to further Christian relationships between churches of the Presbyteries of Cayuga-Syracuse and Utica and the churches of the Presbiterio Campechano on the west side of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, in order to learn from each other, grow in our faith together, and assist in mutual projects to strengthen our faith communities.

The partnership began with a visioning group in 2003 and since then has completed nine visits that included various projects in Campeche, Central New York and on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.

Campechanos and Central New Yorkers work together in a "bobedilla" brigade to put a second floor roof of the presbytery office in Campeche.

Since the beginning of the partnership the Presbytery of Cayuga Syracuse has provided significant support through its Mission and Ministry funding.  In addition, sixteen Presbyterian congregations throughout Central New York have been actively involved in learning about and participating in this partnership.  Click here for more information about how you or your congregation can get involved.
