Get to Know the PRC

PRC is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3, non-denominational, education-based service organization providing professional consultants, educational webinars, workshops and resources.

Our goal is to provide faith communities time-effective; cost efficient; and results-oriented programs and services.  Although much has changed since the opening in 1984 of the Parish Resource Center (the organization from which Practical Resources for Churches has its roots), one thing has not; the core of this organization is and will remain our professional consultants and their work with churches.
