Mission Coordinating Committee

The MCC is a Committee of National Capital Presbytery.  Its function is to serve as a catalyst for mission by connecting congregations with common local, national and international interests.  Together, we help the Presbytery to bear public witness - bringing a prophetic word to the powers and principalities of the world based upon the love, truth and justice of God in Jesus Christ.

Our primary work is in challenging, equipping and supporting congregations and their leaders in the discernment of God's invitation to discipleship.




The Committee meets at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month at Westminster, DC.  Our twelve members serve as liaisons for the various networks, teams and groups within the Presbytery as well as providing overall guidance as budget recommendations. 

Current members include:Marcia Farabee – John Calvin

Rev. Brian Hamilton – Westminster, DC

Rev. David Milam – St. Andrew Presbyterian Church

Le Quan Turner – Westminster, DC

Rev. Sam Atiemo – Christ the King

Mark Eakin – Warner Memorial (Chair)
