Para-church Ministries lg

A parachurch organization is exactly that—an organization that operates alongside (para) the church. Parachurch organizations are groups of Christians, members of the universal church, who engage in specific areas of ministry that serve or supplement the ministry of local churches.

These are just a select few national & international parachurch ministry services and resources (grouped by primary service) that you might find helpful.


These organizations are in addition to the various Mission agencies and missionaries we financially and prayerfully support locally and around the world. We are a giving church.
