PCOSS, Presbyterian Church of South Sudan
The PCOSS (Presbyterian Church of South Sudan) traces its origins to the mission work initiated in Sudan by the American Presbyterians in 1902. Relations based on partnership have been in place between Mission 21 and the PCOSS since 1974 and even during the resurgence of the civil war, they were never interrupted. Since the country was divided in July 2011, the church has concentrated its activities in South Sudan. As well as undertaking work with women and young people, PCOSS and Mission 21 collaborate in order to impart and continue developing skills in theological training, educational work and also peace and reconciliation work.
