Marketplace

Welcome to the 224th General Assembly (2020) Marketplace!  These organizations and partners, which includes the PC(USA) Store, offer Presbyterians a variety of goods and services for pastors, elders, deacons, educators, worship leaders, musicians, and other congregational leaders.

Global Marketplace

Fair Trade is a model of trade that helps people live with increased dignity. The Presbyterian Hunger Program (PHP) believes in the power of this dignity. The Global Marketplace increases awareness of the impact of our participation in the global economy and offers concrete alternatives for more just participation. Global Marketplace partners are excellent sources of responsibly made products. Your purchases benefit not only the people who use and enjoy the items, but the people around the world who make them and desire to live in dignity rather than poverty.  God’s promise of enough for everyone means there must be a way we can each live to our full and true potential.

Church Campaign Services

Together, so much more is possible. CCS is strategy, execution, and success – reimagined. We come alongside you to achieve your capital goals quickly and sustainably, building fiscal strength in your church long after a capital campaign is completed. We teach you new ways to encourage financial stewardship, new ways to grow generous and cheerful givers, and new ways to develop and identify financial capacities you didn’t know your church has. Generosity begins today.
