World Missions

PC(USA) Mission Co-Workers Mark Hare and Jenny Bent

Hare Bent FamilyFrom their base in the Dominican Republic, Mark and Jenny serve Christ together in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Mark, an agricultural technician, communtes to Haiti to work with the Mouvman Peyizan Papay (MPP), helping Haitians learn to grow lots of food on a small amount of land. Jenny, a community health consultant, works with the Evangelical Dominican church in the bateys, company towns populated largely by Haitian sugarcane workers. FPC provides financial support for their work. Mark and Jenny are the parents of two daughters, Keila and Annika.

World Mission Support Expanding!

The Outreach Committee is expanding support of mission workers to help address the funding crisis faced by the Presbyterian Mission Agency.  The Presbyterian Mission Agency faces the very real possibility of not replacing four retiring mission workers and prematurely ending the service of five mission workers in 2016 and forty more in 2017.

Cobbie and Dessa PalmWhile we continue to support the work of Mark Hare and Jenny Bent in Haiti, we are adding to our supported mission family.  Their names are Carlton “Cobbie” and Dessa Palm, serving in the Philippines.  They have been identified as being at-risk for being recalled because of the decreased funding.  Some information about Cobbie and Dessa and their mission follows.

Cobbie earned a bachelor’s degree from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla., and the Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He worked on the staff of the World Council of Churches before entering mission service.

Dessa earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of the Philippines and advanced degrees from Silliman University and the New School for Social Research in New York City.  In addition to her background in the dramatic arts she has also worked in nonprofit management.

Cobbie leads seminars for local church pastors throughout the Philippines, enhancing their skills in church development and revitalization.  He also develops curriculum and trains churches in peace and reconciliation for the Philippine Ecumenical Peace Platform. Dessa coordinates the UCCP’s Theater for Evangelism and Advocacy, which seeks to train church workers and members to creatively communicate the gospel and bear witness to the transformative role of a caring and compassionate church.

For several years in the Philippines Cobbie directed the spiritual formation program at Silliman University’s Divinity School.  In 2010 he began a ministry as a mission facilitator for the UCCP.  Dessa, who married Cobbie in 2006, came under mission appointment in 2012.

Both Cobbie and Dessa were born in the Philippines.  Cobbie’s parents were longtime Presbyterian missionaries James and Louise Palm, and Dessa is of Filipino descent.  “I have been deeply blessed by the opportunities the PC(USA) has offered me to serve the Lord,” Cobbie says, “in all that I do, and into each new ministry where God leads me, my presence brings to that place the presence of the PC(USA).”

Living Waters for the World

Living Waters is the global mission program of the Synod of Living Waters (Presbyterian Church USA) that trains and equips church mission groups and others to share the gift of clean water with communities in need, and to empower their partners to continue purifying their water on an ongoing basis. Clean waters systems are provided both in Appalachia and other countries.  A local Board member is from our church, and this program receives funding in the outreach budget of the church.
