Leadership Training Program
Our goal for the January 2019 trip
is to take $5,000 to support
Lay Leadership Training.
For the past 2 years, one of the goals of the Cuba Partnership Team of Central Florida Presbytery has been to help El Centro Presbytery, Cuba provide training for their lay leaders. The only seminary where theology and other church courses are taught is 300 km away. That is why it is so valuable for pastors and other church leaders to be able to participate in lay leadership programs in Bible, Liturgy, Christian Education, and Vocation.

Central Florida Presbytery has committed to help El Centro (The Central Presbytery of Cuba) with their transportation needs. Six pastors serve 13 churches and 10 mission churches. The pastors travel a minimum distance of 40-50 km to attend to their churches or missions. Cars are assigned to 5 pastors; other pastors depend on buses, horse carts, motorcycles, and taxis to travel to their congregations. Our goal is to take $3,000 when we return to Cuba on January 9, 2019.
Report from our
Cuban Pastor Liudmila explains how Central Florida’s partnership with El Centro is making a difference in the ministry of the Cuban churches
We have all heard of the hardships being created for Cuban families with the closing of consular (visa) services in the US Embassy in Cuba. U.S. church leaders, including the PC(USA), this week sent a letter to Congress asking them to reopen the services in Cuba, the Embassy and drop the travel advisory.
If you would like to download a copy of the letter, please click here.
We encourage you to contact your Senator or Representative in Congress on the points raised in the letter.
