Eleven Year Anniversary

It has especially dawned on me, in the last month or so, just how great our current season is at PCC. What I mean is the people who joyfully serve and all the great things we are accomplishing together.

Consider these facts about new church plants. In the last decade there has been an 80% failure rate of all new church plants. The fact that PCC has survived during that decade-long trend is astonishing – especially given all the challenges we have faced. In fact, when we first began PCC I knew before hand that most new churches do not make it past the five-year mark. Yet in faith, perhaps even a bit na├»ve, we launched out anyway. I’m glad to say that this past Easter Sunday (two days ago) was our eleven-year anniversary and we are healthier than we have ever been!

We’re here to stay.
