The PCA Administrative Committee – Our Ministry: Connecting PCA People, Churches, and Ministries
Together, the hundreds of thousands of people and churches and ministries of the PCA make up a growing, vibrant part of the body Christ. But what is it that ties them all together?
Our Presbyterian doctrine of the Church calls for common standards of Reformed theology, connectional government, and cooperative ministry. And to put this doctrine into practice, we need a solid infrastructure – one that guards our purity and connects us in cooperative ministry so we can move forward together in progress. Who provides this infrastructure?
That is the privilege of the PCA Administrative Committee.
Administration is one of the gifts given by God for the building up of His body, the Church. And administration is our ministry. Through our various functions the AC provides an infrastructure that connects and supports PCA churches, presbyteries, teaching and ruling elders, lay workers, and ministries.
Designated as the “service committee to the General Assembly and the denomination,” the AC exists to serve the people and ministries of the PCA as they carry out our church’s mission to be “faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission.”
Whether you are a pastor or a layperson, the AC is here to minister to you.
Just like every other PCA ministry, the AC relies on voluntary gifts from our churches and from individuals for our very existence. We, too, must live by faith. And we are dependent on your prayers, your encouragement, and your financial support to make our ministry possible.
