Giving Categories / Funds at PCC
Local Ministry Fund
This fund is used to support the local ministry of PCC. Money given to this fund supports things like the children’s & youth ministries, local outreach, adult education, home groups as well as operating costs like facilities, staff and equipment.
Building Fund / Beyond These Walls Capital Campaign
This fund is used to cover facility construction costs. It is currently being used to pay off the debt owed on the facilities at PCC. This happens through payment of the regular monthly mortgage as well as extra payments towards the principal of the loan as giving allows. The Beyond These Walls Campaign is our current capital campaign aimed at debt reduction.
PCC Global Partners
PCC Global Partners are people who were/are PCCers who followed a calling to global ministry and are currently serving in that capacity around the globe. Through this part of the donation page you can directly support individual partners. PCC collects the donations to our partners and forwards 100% of what is given to the partner’s sending organization.
