Peace, Justice and Global Missions


The PJGM ministry of Blacksburg Presbyterian Church works to deepen the awareness and participation in the BPC congregation. We do this by encouraging dialogue among differing views, identifying and addressing situations of violence and injustice, and providing support for organizations acting to promote peace and justice locally and globally, and by engaging with programs of the PC(USA) and its agencies.

The PJGM team meets monthly at BPC and is chaired by Rachel Parson. For date and time check out the BPC Calendar. All are welcome.
