- Advice for future studentsWhen I came to PCC, I found out, slowly but surely, what was really in my heart. Had I been serving the Lord to please my parents or pastor, or was it really in my heart to serve Him, as my choice? There are so many different ministries offered here at PCC, but it is your choice to get involved. Allow God to show you what it is that He wants you to do in service to Him. You’ll find out that living for Him is a lot easier than living for others.

I wanted to attend PCC since 6th grade, but my parents and pastor did not agree with my decision when it was time to start college. I decided to attend another Christian college after graduation, but I knew in my heart that God wanted me at PCC. After one year, a coworker of mine encouraged me to join a 21-day fast with her. I praise the Lord for the many prayers He answered in regards to PCC during that time. I watched Him change the hearts of my parents and pastor, and also provide financially.
PCC provided the best college experience for me. It was here that I was able to overcome fears and be a part of many activities—learning to swim, running my first 5k, cheerleading, singing with the Spirit Singers, leading the Juvenile Detention Center ministry, and taking my first flight by going on a missions trip to the Philippines.
I am so thankful that God led me to PCC. Almost every semester, I would show up with half of the money, money for only books, or no money at all. Yet every semester, God provided. I learned that college is a place to become independent, but also completely dependent on God. I had a plan for my life after college graduation, but God had a better plan. As an enrollment advisor, I encourage you to not let the lack of things discourage you from doing or staying in God’s will. Faith is not the absence of doubt; it is trusting God in spite of your doubt.
