Mission to the USA (MUSA)

The Mission to the USA program links churches in the Synod of the Covenant (Michigan and Ohio) with international church leaders, both clergy and lay leaders. Each Mission Partner is hosted by a congregation in the synod, joining in the life of church. As the Mission Partners and the congregations spend three weeks together, they share worship, Bible Study, pastoral care, many meals, and much more, they break down cultural barriers and truly become brothers and sisters in Christ. To host a Mission Partner, click here for more information and the church application.

    I am with the First Presbyterian Church of Richland, Michigan. Our congregation is interested in holding a Mobile Health Fair in our area. Would you please provide us with information for this.

    Peace and Blessings,

    I looked online to see if your Mobile Health Fair program was still going. I participated back in the mid 1980s. I worked w/ Clara Brown and Sherry Sauer. I had the pleasure of being the van driver one yr. and the med student another year. The health fair experience was one of the most formative experiences for my personal and professional growth. It began a history of personal experience in overseas medical mission, esp. in Central America. I am so pleased to see that the Health Fair program continues.
