Providing Housing Resources to Pastors at Peninsula Bible Church


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.

And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.

Acts 2:45 (ESV)

One Time Gift

Direct giving to the Foundation will allow us to move forward right away.
