Who We Are

The Guatemala Partnership of New Castle Presbytery (Partnership) is an entity that is sponsored by New Castle Presbytery (NCP) and led by a designated Steering Committee. Our purpose is to encourage, guide, support and coordinate the efforts of New Castle Presbytery, its congregations, and individual members to actively engage with our partners in Guatemala, namely the Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies in Central America (CEDEPCA) and the Association of Mam Christian Women for Development (Association). 


Our Steering Committee (pictured above) has nine members representing six churches within the Presbytery. Tracy Keenan, NCP Missional Presbytery, serves as our liaison.
