Our heart is discipleship, and here are a few ways you can grow in your walk with Jesus.

Perspectives On the World Christian Movement

Perspectives is a class that our global field partners and many other people take in order to understand God's redemptive plan for the world through global discipleship. The class is a 15 week study through the Word with testimonies from missionaries and other field partners around the world. The course costs $280 with college credit applying for additional fees. At PC3, we offer 50% scholarships for those participating in Short-Term Missions. Email evans.baggs@portcitychurch.org for more information or checkout the Wilmington class website.
