PBC has a strong spiritual and musical heritage for over 70 years, and music always plays an exciting and vital role in our corporate worship experience. The purpose of PBC's music ministry is to share the gospel of Jesus through song, encourage believers, lead the congregation in worship, and provide opportunities for members to share God-given musical abilities. As a multigenerational church with 500+ in attendance weekly, PBC offers two Sunday morning services featuring diversity of praise team, hymns, choir, and gospel music. Thankfully, God has long blessed PBC with members with strong musical appreciation and skillsets who readily serve under the guidance of the worship leader.
