About The PCA

The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) General Assembly is the largest annual gathering of the denomination. Church leaders from across the country gather to discuss matters important to the life of the church and to make decisions that affect the whole denomination and the progress of the gospel. This includes:

  • Transacting ecclesiastical (church) business
  • Deciding significant theological issues
  • Reviewing work of the denomination's ministries
  • Receiving training through Seminars
  • Connecting with resources in the Exhibit Hall
  • Networking and fellowship during Food Functions
  • Preparing for the future

Organized in December 1973, the PCA now has over 1,466 churches and missions throughout the USA and Canada, with over 350,000 members. Together, the people and churches and ministries of the PCA make up a growing, vibrant part of the body Christ.

"Together" is a key word here. Along with a strong commitment to Reformed theology, our Presbyterian understanding of the Church calls for connectional government and cooperative ministry. That means that our churches, leaders (ruling and teaching elders), and members work together on several levels — local (churches), regional ("presbyteries"), and denomination-wide (General Assembly). Through this multi-layered system, we help one other, encourage one another, and hold one another accountable as we reach out with the gospel of Christ.
