Missions Ministry at PBC

Our church has an active Missions Committee led by Dana Tarr which oversees our Mission program. 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 and make periodic visits to the Mission in Albany to serve dinner and minister to the residents.
