Serving the Church to Advance God’s Kingdom
…with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the Gospel. (Philippians 1:27)
OUR CALLING: To serve PCA churches and presbyteries as they advance God’s Kingdom in North America by planting, growing, and multiplying biblically healthy churches through the development of intentional evangelism and outreach ministries.
OUR VISION: That God, by His grace and for His own glory, will transform the PCA into a grassroots church planting culture.
IN FULFILLMENT OF THIS VISION, OUR HOPE IS…
- To see all PCA churches become houses of prayer for all the nations (Mark 11:7), embracing a Great Commission vision.
- To see people coming to Christ from the many diverse communities and people groups of North America.
- To impact the centers of influence in North America.
- To see churches planted in all regions of North America.
