Go with God’s Word

Reaching the lost for Christ through local and international evangelism is the heart of biblical missions. To prepare for cross-cultural ministry, students receive intensive Bible instruction combined with practical training in skills and strategies proven effective on the field.

PCC’s comprehensive instruction in God’s Word is foundational to the missions concentration. In classes, Campus Church, chapel, and various avenues of ministry, students have opportunities to grow in God’s Word while being challenged to serve others.

Bible classes combine academic instruction with spiritual application to prepare students’ minds and hearts for future ministry on the field. Practical training prepares students for

  • candidate school

  • church planting
  • health/safety on the mission field

Opportunities abound for developing a passion for missions through Christian Service, guest missionaries, Mission Prayer Band, and summer mission trips.

The purpose of the missions concentration is to prepare Christians for effective cross-cultural ministry.

PCC helped prepare me for what a missionary may face on the field. I learned good study habits and gained the tools I needed to aid me in deputation, sermon preparation, youth work, and other areas of my life and ministry.
