Pentecostal/Charismatic Christians and Roman Catholics
Engage in Ecumenical Dialogue
A historic, exploratory, ecumenical dialogue between representatives of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Churches of North America (PCCNA) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) met September 1416, 2021, in Washington. This was the first time scholars representing the two groups met at a national level for a theological dialogue in what is expected to be a three-year exploratory dialogue that could lead to further dialogues exploring areas of convergence in the future. 
Christian Unity Commission leaders are joined by representatives from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Washington, D.C. meeting.
Acts 2 Church Health Commission
Committed Accessibility
Our church health efforts and initiatives must be within reach of every pastor and every congregation, regardless of church size or geographic location. We believe a commitment of time, focus, and resources must be made to fulfill our mission. The Acts 2 Journey team is beginning work on scalable digital delivery of the Acts 2 Journey cohort to provide pastors and their leaders with more opportunities to engage in the process. 

If you’d like to learn more about the Acts 2 Journey, mentoring ministry leaders through the Acts 2 process, or pastoral transition training, make plans to join us in Springfield, MO, November 9–11 for the Acts 2 Journey Intensive.
Dr. Alton Garrison, Chair of the PCCNA Acts 2 Church Health Commission, shares about how to become a certified Acts 2 trainer.
Team Partnership
Paul to Timothy Institute
Local church health requires a team and cannot be achieved by the pastor alone. The challenging journey to health requires multiple gifts and the kind of encouragement only a team can provide. Unless pastors can develop the potential leaders that God has placed around them, the church will struggle to reach its next-level potential.
Learn more about the Acts 2 Journey and the Paul to Timothy Institute for creating a clear process for equipping pastors to mentor their ministry leaders and develop a church’s leadership pipeline.
Introducing the U.E.C.
Transdenominational Fellowship
As we continue highlighting our PCCNA member organizations, the UEC was birthed in 1958 in the midst of a worldwide outpouring of God's Holy Spirit upon ministers and churches of all denominations. This outpouring created a need for a non-competitive ministerial fellowship (not a new denomination) that could unite evangelical churches, bring ministers and ministries together in fellowship and unity of heart, break down the walls of sectarianism which divide God's people.

NHCLC and Convoy of Hope
Help Fleeing Afghan Refugees
The NHCLC has partnered with Convoy of Hope to provide the NHCLC community an opportunity to help tens of thousands of refugees fleeing the crisis in Afghanistan. At this time, the situation is sensitive, and communication regarding this response will be limited. Convoy of Hope is sending truckloads of resources to locations around the U.S. where refugees are arriving as a result of this crisis.
Convoy of Hope will also be working with international partners near Afghanistan and throughout Europe to strategically serve people fleeing the country.
Teenagers Proclaim Gospel
Go Share Day
The Gospel is going forth through an army of children and teenagers on the last Saturday of every month designated as GO Share Day. Greg Stier, the founder of Dare 2 Share, is leading this effort. On September 25th, teens shared the Gospel and distributed Chick-fil-A in Ohio. Teens in Texas organized outreach and went door to door to share the Gospel. In downtown Denver, a team of teenagers had 33 Gospel conversations, handed out pizza, and prayed for people.

Younger Voices
Reaching and Discipling the Next Generation
Younger voices than mine echo in my heart and mind, voices from a generation half my age and younger or from those who serve with that generation. They are living for Jesus and calling us to live as His church in a transformational manner today . . . Listen to their call, their passion, and their wisdom—which may well make the difference in whether or not we develop entire new generations of Jesus followers in Canada’s future church.
David Wells, Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada General Superintendent and PCCNA President, asks the question, "What should our focus as churches be if we are to reach younger generations?"
12 Traits of Churches Doing Well During the Pandemic

by Thom Rainer
I just completed a fun exercise. I looked at the data and anecdotal information of churches that are doing well during the pandemic. While these churches still have an attendance below pre-COVID days, they are beginning to grow, gain a new momentum, and see possibilities other church leaders perhaps have not seen.

So, what are these churches doing? As I examined the data and traits of healthy churches, I saw twelve recurring themes. To be clear, many churches are doing some of these items, but the churches I examined are doing all twelve items . . . They are faithfully preaching and teaching the Bible . . .
