Beyond the Business:

3 Additional Benefits of the PCA’s General Assembly

Anyone who has attended a General Assembly understands this annual gathering is significant not only for the business to be discussed and decided but also because of the relationships developed and activities that occur beyond the business. The General Assembly provides three benefits to the unity, purity, and mission of the PCA beyond the business it considers.

Bridging Cultures:

The Transformative Work of Translating the Book of Church Order into Spanish

Overcoming many obstacles since the General Assembly’s approval for translating the Book of Church Order (BCO) into Spanish, the PCA Administrative Committee (AC) is making significant strides that will help the denomination welcome, bless, and serve the Hispanic community.

“No Little People or Places”

 The Promise, Challenge, and Gift of Pastoring in a Small Town

When Jim Ryan first moved to Marissa, a small town nestled in the fertile farmlands of southern Illinois, he never imagined it would become his home and place of ministry for over two decades.

Marissa’s total population is around 2,000 people. By contrast, the metro area population of St. Louis, just an hour’s drive away, numbers over three million. Even Busch Stadium, the legendary home of the St. Louis Cardinals, seats enough to hold over 20 times the population of Marissa…

The Priority of the Visible Church

The Church is the body of Christ. We don’t exist to perpetuate a legacy. Rather, we exist “for the gathering and perfecting of the saints.” Discover how the Administrative Committee helps the PCA operate as Christ’s body.

Help make the PCA 50th Anniversary a Celebration of Thanksgiving

A 50th PCA Anniversary is a testimony to our Lord’s maintaining a Body of Christ committed to His inerrant Word and His sovereign mission for saving the lost. In 2023, the 50th General Assembly will meet in Memphis, Tennessee, and PCA members are planning toward this marker of God’s provision. We hope you will join with us to make this a special celebration.
