You Are Part Of God’s Work In The World!

This year Pender will host its 28th Missions Conference and you will not want to miss this transforming weekend! Come for part of the weekend or come for all! You will be blessed!

Pender celebrates missions on Friday, April 17th through Sunday, April 19th with a weekend of activities for the whole family!

  • Enjoy an international-themed supper
  • Hear inspiring stories of missionaries serving around the world
  • Listen to praise and worship music
  • Our children will be engaged with a special program designed for them!

A full agenda is available on our website by clicking here.


Thank you for your support of the Faith Promise Missions Budget each year! The Faith Promise Mission’s Budget is separate from the general budget of the church and is funded by faith promises. A faith promise is when you make a promise to provide financial support to missions, you may not know where the resources will come from, and you trust God to provide the resources to meet your promise.This year’s Faith Promise Missions Budget goal is $325,000 and supports global and local missionaries, missionary organizations, short-term mission trips and projects.


Can you host a Missionary in your home?

Housing is needed during Pender’s April 17th-19th Mission Conference for our visiting missionaries. Housing is needed for a couple, a single woman, and two single men. If you can serve the Lord in this wonderful way, please contact Beryl Marin.
