God loves people the most out of all of His creation. Our global outreach ministry works alongside partners around the world to encourage the work of God’s global church by sending and supporting short-term and long-term missionaries. We prioritize church planting, global cities, and indigenous leadership in the areas of Asia Pacific, Central Asia, and Europe.
2023 Global Missions
We affirm the value and strategic importance of short-term mission trips. We coordinate trips to serve and work alongside our long-term mission partners around the world that work strategically with indigenous church planting movements.
Central Asian Partnership
Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked country located in Central Asia, bordering on Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and China. The population is overwhelmingly Muslim, with only a very small percentage identifying themselves as Christian.
In 2023, our partnership with the Kyrgyz church is continuing with a short-term mission trip this July to assist Word of Life Church with their annual kids’ summer camp. Our goal is to support the local church in sharing the love of Jesus in tangible ways, by loving their neighbors through providing a free, month-long summer camp with meals, activities, sports, crafts, English lessons, and other benefits. Local families often have 2 working parents and cannot afford childcare in the summer, so the kids camp is a tremendous help to these families.
We anticipate that more than 100 kids will enroll in the month-long camp, and Word of Life relies on volunteers to help oversee and fund the program. PCC will support the church in week 3 of the summer camp taking place July 17 – 21, 2023. The camp is provided purely as a service, with no strings attached, although camp attendees and their families will be invited to attend weekly church services if they wish.
Who Should Participate: Anyone with a willingness to serve God in Kyrgyzstan, either in person or by providing financial resources to support the camp and/or prayer for the camp, our guests, our hosts, and the mission team. This trip is open to individuals and families with pre-teen / teen children.

CRISIS IN UKRAINE
We are all in prayer over the events in Ukraine asking God to intercede and for the hostility to stop. We are also witnessing the devastating loss of life and property and are wondering how the church can be the church in this time of crisis.
As a first step towards this goal, the mission’s team has made two donations. The first was to Feed My Starving Children for $10,000.00. This donation will provide over 41,000 meals to help feed the Ukrainian refugees. The second donation was made to Justin Williams (Mission Dispatch), who is one of our supported missionaries, serving in the Ukraine.
If you are seeking ways to assist in humanitarian efforts related to the Crisis in Ukraine, Mission to the World and Feed My Starving Children are two organizations assisting with efforts on the group. Watch the video below and click the links to learn more about their work in Ukraine.

“We believe that the church is the primary, God-ordained means for Christian witness… It is through the planting, nurturing and reproduction of vibrant, contextualized and missional churches that the gospel of Christ is proclaimed and incarnated to those who have yet heard or believed. And it is the church, in all its imperfections, that is Christ’s Bride and Body, and that indeed bears in its’ life, the presence of the Kingdom.”
Biblical References:Acts 2;Matthew 18:20; 1 Corinthians 12:12;Ephesians 1:18-23 & 2:19-22
A global city refers to a center with high diversity in language, culture, religion, and ideologies of at least a million people. “A city church of 100 can have ten or more countries in the membership. City churches are hubs, ‘worldwide webs’ of relationships that link back to family or colleagues… We are committed to global cities of strategic importance, because our [church] in Los Angeles was planted as such. God has given us a heart for the unreached and marginalized within our own city, and as we seek to be a light to our city we desire to be that for our world beyond.”
Biblical References: Ephesians 4:11-13; 2 Timothy 4:2; Acts 20:28; Isaiah 52:7
“We believe that nationals are the most effective witnesses to their native cultures, and so we seek to partner with individuals and ministries that focus on training, equipping, empowering, and serving indigenous believers to reach their own for Christ… We simply believe that the most strategic way to reach those suburban and rural communities is to have vital, missional, gospelcentered,indigenous church planting movements in urban centers in the world.”
Biblical References: Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15
