Ministry Strategy: Serve

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: Serve.  

What do we mean by Serve?

Jesus told his disciples that the greatest among them would be the “servant of all”. From his life and ministry, we see a compassionate advocate of the marginalized, a healer of the sick, an open embrace for the stranger—a servant king ushering in his heavenly Kingdom here on earth. The more we seek servanthood, the more we come to understand the Father’s deep love for us through the revolutionary message of the Gospel. Serving is a privilege. A joy. An opportunity to know God intimately as we see his image in the faces of our brothers and sisters.

Why is serving important?

God is already working in incredible ways in our families, our church, our city, and around the world . . . and we want to join Him. PCBC believes that every single member of our church family has something uniquely valuable to offer in the service of others. Your skills, personality, experience, gifts, and time are vital to this remarkable journey we’re on together. Through taking part in missions and volunteer opportunities, you have the chance to actively participate in healing and restoring the world through the Gospel.

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

When it comes to deciding where to serve, it's important to think about your gifts and your passions. 

What do you love doing? What knowledge or experience do you have that would benefit others? What kind of environments do you find energizing/draining? Is your schedule flexible or do you enjoy routine? 

Answering these kinds of questions will help you narrow down what volunteer opportunities work best for you. 

Next, explore the huge variety of serving options we offer within the church, with partnering organizations in Dallas, and through missions outreach abroad. 

At PCBC, we are always looking for help in our children’s ministries, sports outreach activities, parking and greeting, technical production, library services, and more! 

In the Dallas community and overseas, we partner with trusted ministries who regularly need our help to thrive. We minister to the homeless, refugees, single mothers, immigrants, prisoners, and at-risk youth, among other needy populations. Globally, our focus is to equip and empower local churches to thrive independently as they share the Gospel in their own communities. Mission and outreach trips are available to select countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America throughout the year.

What serving means to our members

“I know now that generosity isn’t just about money, it’s about giving your time, your talent, and your gifts.”

–Ashley Filkins, 1st-grade AWANA volunteer at PCBC 

“The people we serve don’t feel loved or important. We get to be the hands and feet of Jesus to them. I’ve been blessed beyond my wildest dreams working here. These people have nothing, but they love the Lord. It’s amazing.”

–Nancy Rockwell, Cornerstone’s ministry for the homeless in Dallas 

“One of the biggest areas of need is here in Dallas. Hard working people can’t pay their rent. They struggle to feed and clothe their children. That burdened my heart. We are going to make a difference here [at Vickery House]. We want people to accept Christ, but we also want to change their lives. We want to build stronger families."

–Bob Herrera, volunteer leader of PCBC’s alms ministry and Vickery House outreach to refugee and immigrant families

"I love serving in the Caribbean. We do a youth camp for 12-20-year-olds each summer there. God always uses specific people I encounter to teach and remind me of how to follow Him, how to find joy no matter what my circumstances, and to dedicate my life to serving Him."

–Anna Berry, Caribbean mission trip volunteer
