We believe it is also important to go around the world sharing God's rescuing grace and Gospel to others in the spiritually darkest places on the earth. So as a church we are active in Latin American, Africa and countries throughout Asia. We partner with local pastors and leaders to train up the next generation of pastors or help plant reproducing house churches. We have partnered to host large worship gatherings and mobilized the local church.
Our hope is that you will find a place with one of our global partners to share God's rescuing grace and help transform lives.
Please check back as dates and price of trips are subject to change. Trips are added as soon as they are confirmed with our partners. For more information contact the Missions office at 214-860-3916 or e-mail Missions Office
2017 Mission Trips
Guatemala Women's Trip - April 23-29, 2017
Trip Cost: $2000 includes flight, accommodations, meals
Have you been looking for a women only mission trip?
Our PCBC women's mission trip to Guatemala City is a life changing experience. We will work with our mission partner, Potter's House, who ministers to families, "Treasures", that live in and around the largest dump in Central America. Something very important in the Guatemalan culture for fifteen-year-olds is a quinceneria. These Treasures cannot honor their young women in this way without help. Potters House tells us that it would be a life-long memory for our women to focus on the young teens in their care and celebrate with them through providing this important cultural experience.
We will use this opportunity to disciple these budding women about who they are to God and how important it is for them to live out His unique purpose for their lives. We are looking for women who are willing to love, encourage, challenge and support young women to recognize their unique purpose in God's kingdom.
For more information please contact Debi Newman-Riesling at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 214-860-1560.

Rwanda Trip - June 21-30, 2017
Trip Cost: $3800 includes flight, accommodations, meals
African Christian Outreach (ACO) is excited to be partnering with PCBC in Rwanda. The PCBC team will be helping host and lead a mission's conference for college students from universities around the country. These students represent the generation that was babies and small children during the Rwandan Genocide twenty-one years ago. Reaching out... reaching in, is still understandably a difficult concept to grasp. Generations were lost during the infighting and this generation is left to lead into the future.
The PCBC team along with ACO indigenous missionaries will be leading a series of practical breakout trainings, connecting missions and a marketplace mentality and encouraging each other with their stories of faith. The conference will provide opportunities for team members to invest in Rwandan university students and connect with them on a personal level. The conference will seek to equip these young students to be more hirable while teaching Scriptural Truth and sharing the Gospel. Some of the areas of need for these students are resume writing, interview coaching and personal finance. ACO trains interns and key students to launch them back into their native cultures with the Gospel .
You can't fly around the world and not see the "other" part of Africa. A few days will be set aside to see the beauty and the wild of East Africa.
