Overview

Providence is passionate about Jesus Christ, the gospel and His church.  Not only the existing church but also the future church.  As a result, we believe Providence has a major role to play in raising up and training the next generation of healthy Christian men and women who will make an eternal impact in their generation and future generations.  Pastors, Ministry Leaders, Church Planters and Missionaries not only need to be grounded with a foundation in spiritual disciplines and theology but also need to be exposed to the realities of ministry and missions within the context of a body of believers.  In light of this, and by God’s grace, we believe Providence Church is uniquely gifted to equip and train individuals pursuing a lifetime of vocational Christian ministry.
