Go & Serve in the world

God sends us to go and serve out in the world. His church is global and so is our mission to serve His people. We are being sent like Jesus was sent. We’re sent with the same purpose to bring healing and hope and redemption, to proclaim a hope and a ransom from the captives of this world, to bring justice and mercy for those who are struggling and suffering under oppression.

Opportunities to support our global community include short-term mission trips, as well as supporting those that travel to serve abroad and mission partners with a global focus.

Villages in Partnership

Villages in Partnership (VIP) aims to “eradicate extreme poverty, beginning in the rural villages of Sakata in Malawi.” Their approach is to address six critical needs of human development: food, water, education, medical care, infrastructure, and economic opportunity. Working in partnership with the people of each village, as well as other churches, schools, businesses, and community organizations, there’s been notable progress across the last decade. Some examples of the work that’s taken place in Malawi include the installation of new clean water wells, a medical clinic, a school, housing for educators, and agricultural projects, among others.

Urban Promise Latin America

When we first came alongside our community mission partner Urban Promise, our partnership was focused solely on supporting the work the organization was doing in Camden, NJ. That was over 20 years ago. In the decades since, this partnership has also moved beyond New Jersey as connections first nurtured there have led to relationships with other Urban Promise locations like Urban Promise Latin America (UPLAM) in Honduras. With a goal of equipping and raising local leadership, UPLAM partners with other regions throughout Latin America to mentor and encourage those that support youth in their faith communities.

Chiapas, Mexico

Mission teams from PCTR have traveled to the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico to help church leaders there develop Children’s Ministry programs. On these trips, the teams equip Sunday School teachers and pastors that in turn minister to about 1,000 children in 18 different communities in Mexico. In addition, they bring suitcases worth of medication for the local healthcare center and educational materials to be distributed to program participants.
