WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are a newly-formed, non-profit foundation that has been established to continue and formalize PBC’s efforts to address the negative impact that high housing cost in this area have on our ability to recruit and retain pastoral staff. While we are set up as a separate and independent organization from PBC, our focus and ministry is tightly tied to the ministry of the church; we will work closely with the Elders on this important task of helping pastors afford to live and minister here.
We derive our name from Acts 2:45. We hope that it will remind everyone — including those who give to this ministry, the pastors who will benefit from the foundation’s assistance and all of us who benefit from the continued teaching and shepherding of our pastors — to give sacrificially to address this great need, and to invest in our pastoral staff, providing a long-lasting benefit to the church.
We will receive specific direction from the Board of Elders to prioritize and execute projects. These may include the purchase or establishment of co-ownership agreements of residences to be used as homes for pastors. We also provide a service to the Body at PBC by providing tax-qualified vehicles for testamentary and deferred giving.
WAYS TO GIVE
Throughout your life you have supported the work of the church; you can bless the next generation with a legacy gift provided through your will or trust. Your planned gift will enable PBC to provide pastoral housing so that our shepherds can be part of the community in which they serve.
One Time Gift
Direct giving to the Foundation will allow us to move forward right away.
We accept donations of real estate, stocks, bonds, and other financial instruments are also welcome.
