PC-USA Decline in WMD

PC-USA Decline in WMD

According to this article, the Presbyterian Church (USA) is struggling to send missionaries.  To quote the article, “decreased funding has called for the elimination of the denomination’s Worldwide Ministries Division (WMD).”

Okay, as an aside, they might want to change that acronym…

Why the decline?  Well, a study of the article would suggest that the problem is mostly in reference to funding.  While they say there is a need to send more people, there is also a clear statement that the funding issues are the root problem, not a lack of recruits.  Over the past few years most conservative denominations have increased their sending and giving, so it would be easy to assume that the reason for the decline for the PC-USA could be related to their mainstream approach.
