“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. ” Matthew 28:18-20
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” John 20:21
In response to Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations and to be ‘sent ones’, PBCC is committed to mobilizing the body to be involved in Global Missions and Local Missions as the Nations come to us.
PBCC is planning to take two trips to Liberia in 2023
This trip will focus on teacher training. On every trip, we try to do some teacher training, but inevitably we never spend as much time as we’d like. Therefore, this trip will be entirely dedicated to pouring into the Liberian teachers at both programs. Go here if you’d like to financially support this trip or individuals going on this trip.
This trip will be similar to our normal yearly trips. We’ll take up to 20 people to do a variety of tasks: construction, VBS (Vacation Bible School), Bible conference and teacher training. If you’d like to join our April trip, please contact Shawn.
Go here if you’d like to financially support this trip or individuals going on this trip.
PBCC partners with Child Development Liberia (CDL), to care for the poor in the country of Liberia. We have built, and continue to support two schools outside of Monrovia, the capital. Financially, our support provides education, the Gospel, food and medical care to approximately 400 students. Every two years we invite members from our body to consider traveling to Liberia to love on everyone at the schools. On these trips, we usually have a construction team, a VBS team and a Bible Conference team (but may have other teams as well, depending on needs). We also invite you to continue to pray for this ministry, especially for Robert (the country director), the teachers and the students. If you would like to be a part of this ministry or have any questions, please contact Shawn.

PBCC Ministry Partners

Supporting Ministry Partners at PBCC
Supporting Ministry Partners at PBCC: Ministry Partners are generally considered employees of the agency they work with. The agency provides a salary using funds donated to it by the ministry partner’s financial supporters. The primary way that PBCC Ministry Partners are supported is via this form of “individualized” support. As part of their involvement in God’s mission, individuals in the PBCC body commit to supporting the ministry partners. Everyone in the PBCC body is encouraged to develop a relationship with one or more of our ministry partners and to participate in their ministry through prayer and financial support.
PBCC Missions Fund: In 2009, the PBCC Elders initiated a Missions Fund through which PBCC could supplement a ministry partner’s individualized support by making a “corporate” commitment to their support as part of the PBCC body’s participation in God’s mission. The Missions Fund is funded by 4% of the undesignated offerings to the church as well as by gifts designated for the Missions Fund.
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
The justice ministry is dedicated to fighting injustice in the form of human trafficking, bonded labor, property grabbing, or slavery. Globally we support International Justice Mission and we have a special focus in fighting sex trafficking in Romania. Locally we work with Love Never Fails .
Our objectives are to build awareness of injustice, particularly against the poor and defenseless, prevent human trafficking, and to support victims during recovery through God’s redemptive love. To join the justice e-mail list, contact Grace Kvamme.
