The influence of the PCA extends far beyond the walls of the local church. Mission to the World, the missions agency for the PCA, has 519 career missionaries in almost 60 nations of the world, 169 two-year missionaries, and over 6,500 short-term missionaries. Because of the relationship between Mission to the World with over 30 mission organizations with whom some of our missionaries are working, many consider that the influence is far greater than our size might indicate.
Indeed, PCA churches support an additional 690 career missionaries, covering more than 130 nations. Further, with more than 100 chaplains in the military, Veterans Administration, prisons, and hospitals, as well as 45 college and university campus ministers, the Gospel is proclaimed to a large audience around the world not reached through usual outreach channels. Because of the emphasis on education, there are many members of the PCA who are teachers and professors at all levels, including a significant number of large universities and theological seminaries.
