The Young Adults ministry at PBCC is a community of 18-29 year-old singles who love Jesus and desire to grow in our relationship with Him. We also desire to walk alongside each other in authentic community, loving life together, having fun together, serving together and studying God’s word together. If you are a college student or a young professional, come out and join us! All are welcome! You do not have to come to Sunday morning services at PBCC to hang out with us. Contact Shawn and look for us on Facebook.
