PW & PDA Team Up!

20150829_161907“A collaboration between the Presbyterian Women (PW) and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) ministries provides specialized training to equip Presbyterian women to work with their congregations and witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis.” (from the PC(USA) website)

As part of this PC(USA) effort, PW Chair Molly McCarthy and Sue Jonas recently joined 18 other women in Tampa, Florida for PDA “Train the Trainers” Training. Trainers representing several states attended the all day training session. Our own, Ken McKenzie was there. Each woman attending the training committed to doing three training sessions per year over the next three years for their churches, communities and presbyteries. Look for some excellent Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Training soon!
