Missions Ministry at PBC

Our church helps support many missionaries around the world in our desire to see the world evangelized. We have an annual Missions Conference in October at which time we have several of the missionaries with us to give us an up-date. We also assist the Capital City Rescue Mission in Albany with the mailing of their quarterly Newsletter.

The Lord is now leading them back to that country to work with rural churches in the northwest provinces of Salta and Jujuy. Their main ministry will be to come alongside national pastors and church leaders to train and disciple them. The Zalazars will also be working in the areas of evangelism and youth ministries. They are excited about ministering to their fellow Argentines and look forward to work with churches that are in need of encouragement and Bible training. The Zalazar's vision is to see these churches grow and reach their communities for Christ.
