World Mission

David Cortes and Josey Saez

SGP’s own David and Josey are mission co-workers serving in the Caribbean. Josey is serving in the Dominican Republic at the invitation of the Iglesia Evangelica Dominicana and David is serving the broader Caribbean region at the invitation of partners throughout the Caribbean.

About David Cortes and Josey Saez’s ministry

In his role as regional theological educator and curriculum consultant for the Caribbean, David will accompany Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) partners in the region as they seek to strengthen theological education. David will consult with several partner theological institutions to assess together their curricula and other factors that strengthen or challenge the preparation of pastors and lay leaders for the church, facilitating connections with Caribbean and PC(USA) seminaries and other potential partners. As time permits, he will also be available for short courses in areas of his expertise. David’s extensive experience as an administrator and professor in the States and his time serving as a mission co-worker at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Matanzas, Cuba, have endowed him with a deep knowledge of theological education and receptivity to diverse perspectives.

As she embarks on her new role as Christian educator with the Iglesia Evangelica Dominicana, Josey will build on her more than a dozen years serving in Christian education and her four years as a mission co-worker in Cuba. In her ministry in the Dominican Republic, she will work as part of a team in developing and adapting curricula based on the priorities of her Iglesia Evangelica Dominicana partners.

David and Josey occasionally return to the U.S. and are available to visit congregations. Email them to extend an invitation to your congregation or organization.
