We desire to equip followers of Jesus to actively take the gospel to the nations and support those that are on the mission field.


We believe that prayer is fundamental when it comes to getting the gospel to the ends of the earth. There are two ways you can pray. First, sign up for the myPBCRaleigh Missions group. You’ll receive periodic prayer requests for mission trips, missionaries, and church planters. Please note you must have a myPBCRaleigh login to join the group. Second, stop by the Prayer wall and sort through missions related prayer requests. When you pray for one, click “I Prayed For This.”



When you give financially, you can trust that those dollars are being used to further the gospel. Your generosity helps missionaries and church plants focus less on fundraising and more on reaching new followers of Christ and growing them up to love and worship Him. Your giving also allows Providence to reduce the costs of short-term trips and provide various discounts including discounts for students and those going on their first mission trip. You can give to individual mission trips and/or specific trip participants who are going. Just click on the green “donate” icon for the specific trip, and choose a participant from the dropdown menu.



Raleigh is saturated with gospel believing churches and while we believe we should still be active in sharing the gospel with our neighbors, it is critical that we take the hope of Jesus to countries and urban centers around the world that have very little gospel witness. Whether you can give 1-2 weeks or next 20 years, Providence wants to help you go on mission. Each year Providence offers a wide array of short-term mission trips that are tailored for different ages and skill sets. If you’re interested in learning more about long-term missions, contact Tricia at [email protected].



There are many ways you can help serve the Missions Team and Providence missionaries. Volunteers are needed to help with events throughout the year including the Missions Festival. Have a timeshare or vacation rental missionaries can use when stateside? Have a car missionaries can borrow when they’re home? Have time to assist with lawn care, general maintenance, and decorating the missions house? No matter what you’re gifted in, the Missions Team can find a place for you to serve. For more information, contact Tricia at [email protected].

What Is A People Group?

An ethnolinguistic group with a common self-identity that is shared by the various members. For strategic purposes, it is the largest group within which the gospel can spread without encountering barriers of understanding or acceptance. There are approximately 11,755 people groups in the world.

*Information on people groups gathered from the IMB research website: peoplegroups.org.

Unreached People Groups

A people group is considered unreached (UPG) when there is no indigenous community of believing Christians able to engage this people group with church planting. Technically speaking, the percentage of evangelical Christians in this people group is less than 2 percent. Currently, there are 7,086 UPGs in the world.

Unengaged People Groups

Unreached people groups are unengaged (UUPG) when there is no church planting strategy, consistent with evangelical faith and practice, underway. Gathering believers and planting churches are the keys to establishing an effective and multiplying presence among these people groups. There are currently 3,167 UUPGs.

Missionary Housing

Providence offers two homes for missionaries to use for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of a year at a time. People who have been sent out or are currently supported by Providence receive priority reservations for the house but like-minded people from other organizations or churches may also apply for housing.
