The St. Augustine Mutual Mission Committee oversees, coordinates and recruits participants in the 
various ministries of the Mutual Mission, in cooperation and consultation with our partner, the Jamaica Ecumenical Mutual Mission. It administers and is guided by the presbytery’s policy, “Activities of Ministers, Churches, and Session in Participating in International Missions.” It seeks to maintain and strengthen the mutual mission effort in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries and within the bounds of this presbytery. The committee plans ways for raising both funds and awareness in support of the mutual mission. On an annual basis, it submits its budget to the presbytery for approval.

The ecumenical Mutual Mission is an association of members in St. Augustine Mutual Mission (SAMM), Jamaica Ecumenical Mutual Mission (JEMM), and Cuba, committed to Christ and the Gospel so that needs are mutually shared, responded to, and met.  For more details on our work in Jamaica, go to

The committee consists of at least nine members.
