Here is a short clip of our Spring 2018 Prince Cares, and how God used our people to serve our community!
Foster Care and Adoption
Prince cares about our community.
We have several partnerships with local ministries to help us to both demonstrate and declare the gospel to those around us, including Neighborhood Bible Clubs held on the last Saturday of each month, and working with the ministry of International Friends, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with internationals living in the Athens area.
Prince has also initiated other ministries to share God’s love with our community, including the Athens Korean Church, Hispanic Ministry, and Prince Avenue Christian School. The church also strongly supports the Athens Pregnancy Center.
