PBA Facts


Mission of the PBA

In 2009 there was a study done by the PBA about the future of the Association. There were two outcomes:

  • That the focus shift from being a denominational entity to a network of churches.
  • That we create a vision statement that reflects this shift. The new vision statement is: A network of churches, equipping churches, for Kingdom Ministry.
