About Peninsula Baptist Association
Who We Are
We are a network of churches who believe we can do more together than apart to impact the Peninsula region with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The things we do together include the following:
A Network of Churches…
Pastor’s Fellowship – A monthly gathering of pastors to pray with each other, learn from each other, develop ministry skills and enjoy a meal together. We believe that pastors who network with other pastors are more likely to have a strong and healthy ministry. We invite any pastor from our region to come join with us. We currently meet on the third Thursday of each month from 11 AM to 1 PM. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our contact list.
Affinity Groups – We have affinity groups for networking and equipping. These currently include groups for children’s workers, youth workers, turn around pastors.
Training Events – We provide events throughout the year in a variety of ministry areas to equip people for the work of ministry.
Consulting and Coaching – Our staff is available to provide customized consulting in church health and growth for your church and one-on-one coaching for pastors and leaders.
For Kingdom Ministries…
Church Planting – We have created a great, supportive environment for church planters to begin new work in our area. This includes a Church Planter Cluster that meets regularly, one-on-one coaching, help with the assessment process and scholarship money for training.
Work Camp – Teenagers from many of our churches come together each summer for a week of ministry, fun and worship. The focus of this project is to serve people in the community who need repair work done to their homes. We share the gospel as we meet needs.
Sports Camps – The PBA Summer Team assist our churches in providing quality Sports Camps throughout the summer months as a way to reach into their communities. These camps teach basic skills in a variety of sports, Bible study, worship and games.
Disaster Relief – We partner with Virginia Baptists to provide critical relief during times of disaster. Most recently, our feeding team joined others from around the state to prepare and serve tens of thousands of meals in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.
These are just a few ways we partner together. The best way to keep informed about groups and events is by subscribing to our weekly “Email Blasts” and our monthly “Network News”.
