The mission of The Presbyterian Outlook is to provide Presbyterians:
- Their most engaging venue for connecting,
- Their most essential means of networking,
- Their most helpful vehicle for mutual equipping, and
- Their most robust resource for participating in the worldwide mission of God.
We strive to provide leaders and future leaders a trusted source of accurate reporting, insightful analysis, thought-provoking commentaries and congregational resources.
We provide a marketplace and forum for the open exchange of ideas, resources and information, utilizing both print and electronic media.
We have big dreams for the years ahead:
- We dream of the day when the Presbyterian Church is effectively serving the worldwide Christian movement by being a thought-leader and mission-coordinator for the fulfillment of the missio dei.
- We envision local Presbyterian congregations being transforming communities for the extension of God’s reign in their neighborhoods and beyond.
- And we foresee The Presbyterian Outlook supporting this vision by providing not just a magazine but a total communication network by which Presbyterians foster openness, candor, theological acuity and mutual respect throughout the church and world.
