Ministry Strategy: Multiply

Throughout our lives, human beings develop important rhythms and habits based on what we truly value. A church is no different! Our strategy is simply a blueprint for practically living out what matters to us as a church. It is a model, not a mandate; a charter, not a checklist. By participating consistently in these liturgies as a church family, we believe God will bring us closer together in faith and purpose. Here, we’ll focus on just one aspect of our ministry strategy: Multiply.  

What do we mean by Multiply?

To multiply simply means to extend the boundaries of your faith beyond Sunday’s four walls. Like yeast working its way through bread dough, love can only rise and flourish when we make room for it to grow. As a church family, we want to expand our spiritual imaginations to integrate the Gospel in our conversations, our relationships, our work, and our lifestyles.

Why is it important?

The Gospel is good news, and good news should be shared! Jesus commands his followers to go forth and bring the Gospel to “Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth,” meaning that no matter who we are or where we go, we have the responsibility to let the love of God permeate our lives.

How do I make it a part of my life now?

Take a quick inventory of how you spend your time. Do you consciously make room in your life to walk alongside people who need discipleship, mentoring, or to hear the truth of the Gospel? Do the people you interact with everyday feel known and loved by you? How are you making short and long-term investments in your family, your spouse, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors, and people in need around the world? 

Now, think about how you can be intentional with opportunities offered by the church for mentorship, discipleship of new believers, and evangelistic outreaches locally and overseas. How is God prompting you to participate? 

What multiplying means to our members 

How PCBC College Students Teamed up with Local Leaders to Serve in Cambodia 

After traveling for two days on high spirits and little sleep, a team from PCBC’s college student ministry rolled up their sleeves, shaded their eyes, and stepped out into the bright and bustling streets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  

The trip had many goals. It was about service projects and outreaches. It was about engaging with the people. It was about encouraging fellow believers who endure the constant challenges posed by being the minority religion in a country where 95 percent of the population practices Theravada Buddhism.

But perhaps the most important exercise of the trip was simply listening—being open to what God was already doing in through the churches, ministries, and Cambodian Christ Followers who have given their lives to bring Gospel to their own people.  

In Cambodia, becoming a Christian is no small sacrifice. Converts often face humiliation and rejection by their own families, and thereby forfeit the central source of stability and identity in Cambodian life. Despite these difficulties, our team witnessed firsthand a boundless and compelling Gospel: one that transcends even the most deeply rooted traditions to change hearts and transform lives.  

They spent time worshipping alongside Cambodian believers, visiting schools and villages, playing games with children, and passing out copies of a comic book-style Gospel presentation. Through these interactions and conversations, team members were able to invite the children to a youth rally organized by a local church.  

Over 400 children attended the rally, and enjoyed singing, performances, raffles, listening to a Bible story, and sharing in a traditional Cambodian meal.  

Other outreaches included cleaning, painting, and trash pick-up in the villages, leveling a walkway, prayer and relationship building, serving meals, teaching English classes, and hosting a large evangelistic event for the surrounding community.  

God brought over 600 villagers to the church festival where music, children’s performances, and the Gospel message were shared with joy that was almost palpable. PCBC’s team leaders were invited to participate in the baptisms of 10 local teenagers, some of whom had decided to become Christ followers that same evening.

Among them was a sixteen-year-old girl who, after 9 years of hesitation, decided to be baptized. Even as she entered a new family in Christ, her entire earthly family rejected her. She believed following Jesus was worth it . . . truly, it is worth everything.
