In the Church
Do you have a heart for children or students? More geared toward working with adults? Do you love music? Do you enjoy offering a warm smile and friendly greeting? Do you enjoy giving a room a facelift with a fresh coat of paint or by making simple repairs? Do you speak English and enjoy meeting people from other cultures? However God has wired you, there are service opportunities for you here at PCBC! And don’t think you aren’t needed…’cause you are! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In the Community
At PCBC, we minister in three local areas that receive a lot of our time, energy, and focus. These areas include outreach to our public schools, apartment communities, and the Norcross Co-op.
God has allowed us to minister to the Norcross High sports teams through FCA and teach a Bible class for credit for the high school. We also lead Good News Clubs at Peachtree Elementary by adopting school teachers that we support throughout the school year.
We partner with Re-Christ Ministry, Whirlwind Missions, and Family Heritage Foundation to reach families living in apartments. Our ministry includes but is not limited to after-school tutoring for children, ESL classes for adults, VBS, seasonal events, and helping to settle Persecuted Church refugee families.
We are a big supporter of the Norcross Co-op, which provides a holistic approach to ministering to those in need who come through their doors. They provide food and clothing, spiritual counsel, and practical direction during this time of crisis for these families. We support this ministry financially and through special drives for food, school supplies, toys, etc.
Our life groups are designed to allow members to serve in these three focus areas throughout the year. If you would like more information about these ministry areas, please contact email@example.com.
In the World
Jesus' last words to His disciples just before He ascended into heaven are recorded in Acts 1:8: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. In obedience to His great commission to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19), PCBC has a missions strategy that encompasses home missions and foreign missions.
Recognizing that the world has come to our doorstep, in August 2014 we completed our Upper Room, a space designed for worship by the ethnic churches we are planting through the leadership of a Korean pastor, a Japanese pastor, and a Hispanic pastor. We also partner with New Destiny Church, an African-American church that meets in the YMCA across the street and that often becomes the church home for the Norcross HS athletes we help reach. Our home missions strategy also supports the work of the Arabic First Baptist Church in Lilburn, the Georgia Baptist Children's Home in Palmetto, Georgia, Persecuted Church refugee care, and a rural church in Hungry Horse, Montana.
Our foreign missions strategy focuses on children, church planting/leadership development, and the Persecuted Church. We minister to Kenyan orphans through Mully Children's Family and to Romanian orphans and Roma gypsies through Livada Orphan Care. We support church planting in Bangladesh through a family serving with the IMB. We help develop leaders for the persecuted Persian church through Elam Ministries and leaders for the church around the world through Haggai Institute, Call2All, and In-Step. For more information on our global outreach, contact Pastor Justin Ely. For general information on mission trips, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Mission Trips page.

It is our mission to pray, give, and go in order to share the Gospel of Christ to all nations, tongues, and people groups. Through our missions ministry, thousands of souls are hearing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for the first time, and many are trusting Christ as Savior as a result of the sacrificial giving of our men, women, and children. We believe our church must be mission minded to be faithful to our calling as a body of believers in Jesus Christ.
We as a church have accepted the challenge of ACTS 1:8 ...
...but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.
