Matthew 28:19-20 tells us, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” 


PMPBC desires to further the kingdom of God by sharing the gospel locally and globally. Through partnerships with local and global organizations, as well as missionaries on the frontlines, we work to fulfill the Great Commission. 


Calgary, Canada

PMPBC supports Calgary Missionary Elaine Shaneyfelt, church planters, and the work that is being done through the North American Mission Board (NAMB). Elaine grew up in Alabama and attended PMPBC as a young adult. She now serves as the minister to women, children, and outreach at Junction Church, Calgary. Elaine leads weekly life groups for women, as well as one-on-one discipleship. She also teaches children at Junction Church and though community summer camps. To reach others in the community, Elaine organizes and leads community association events and leads an English as a Second Language (ESL) group. Click on Elaine's photo to learn more about her and her work in Calgary.


In addition to supporting Elaine, PMPBC serves as a prayer partner for pastors throughout Canada who are planting churches through the work of the NAMB. 

UGANDA


Uganda Missions is an annual gospel-centered mission trip to the Kampala area of Uganda. Based on the Great Commission, the main idea is to share the gospel so that the gospel can transform lives. We partner with International Missionaries for Christ (IMFC), an organization focused on making disciples. While in Uganda, the team shares the gospel, helps to feed the poor through the Manna program, supplies Mama Kits to pregnant women, and visits those in prisons to share the Gospel. After the mission team is back home, local pastors follow up with those who have accepted Christ to disciple and nurture them to grow in Christ.

 

The team also supports Mamma Tulia's ministry. Mama Tulia visits the NICU in hospitals and shares the gospel with the mothers. Mama Tulia also opens her home to teach these mothers the Word of God and different life skills. She provides kits for the babies and helps with food. To find out more about the current work being accomplished, read the Mama Tulia newsletter published by the ministry.

Manna Program

PMPBC is partnering with the Mama Tulia ministry in Uganda to sponsor mothers in the Manna Program twice a year. The Manna Program provides 6 months of food for the mothers while they learn how to save money and start a business to provide for their families. Beyond just meeting the physical needs of these moms, this program provides them with the opportunity to participate in weekly Bible study where they can grow in the Lord. A new group started June 2021.


You can find out more about the program or sign up to sponsor a mother here.

Ecuador


PMPBC has developed a missional relationship with a team in Ecuador. This team is led by an American couple that has lived in Ecuador for over 30 years. When our team travels to Ecuador, we help our Ecuadorian brothers and sisters continue their efforts they perform on a daily basis. These activities include leading student Bible camps at Camp Chacauco and Camp UNPES, hosting VBS events, attending local worship services, and performing construction projects. Our mission team is a combination of students, their parents, adults, staff members, and pastors.

MISsion 127


Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.  James 1:27

  • mission

    The focus of Mission 127 is to care for vulnerable children and foster and adoptive families locally and globally. This ministry is an endeavor by our church as part of the great commission to make disciples of all nations.  We believe that it is an integral way that the church is called to fulfill our mission to take care of the most vulnerable among us and to show the glory of our own adoption as God's children by caring for those who do not have the protection and nourishment of a family.

  • Blessing Bags

    Along with items collected by other local churches, PMPBC fills Blessing Bags with stuffed animals, pajamas, blankets, and toiletries, Bibles, and personal notes. These bags are given to the Morgan County DHR for children on their first night in foster care.  As this is a very traumatic experience and vulnerable time for these kids, these blessing bags are a tangible way to show them love and to care for their needs.

Operation Christmas Child

Each year our church participates in packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child (OCC), which are delivered to children in need around with world. This is a great way to involve the entire family in lovingly selecting gifts, praying for a child, and sharing the love of Jesus and the gospel with a child in another country. In addition to receiving a shoebox filled with toys, clothes, school supplies, and hygiene items, each child will hear the gospel and receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful booklet telling the gospel story in the child’s own language. Many of these children are invited to participate in The Greatest Journey, a 12-week long discipleship program where they learn how to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family.

Unreached People Groups

Currently, there are 7,414 Unreached People Groups in the world. The Joshua Project defines an Unreached People Group  as a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance. Nearly 1/4 of the world's population resides in Frontier people groups, those groups with no more than one Christian per 1,000 individuals. These groups require pioneering missionary effort. Join us in prayer each week as we pray for a different Unreached People Group. Pray that they would hear of Christ and that their hearts would be moved to pursue Him as a group. 


And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations

Matthew 24:14
