In Our World
As we strive to love those who God has put in our path, we seek to reach our local community, and those around the world, with the love of Jesus and His message of grace and forgiveness.
Linked With Love
Linked with Love is Pearce’s partnership with the Nzige Preschool: located on a hilltop in southeastern Rwanda, Africa. Pearce families are asked to consider making a commitment to sponsor a child from the school. To date, more than 100 children in Nzige have been sponsored by families at Pearce, but there are still children waiting for sponsors.

Their vision is to carry out the Great Commission by training disciples to make and multiply disciples, pastors to multiply pastors, and churches to multiply churches.
