Description:
In 1989, the Covenant Fellowship of Presbyterians and Presbyterians United for Biblical Concerns merged to form Presbyterians for Renewal (PFR)--a broad based advocacy and ministry organization. In 2011, a movement began that would come to be known as the Fellowship of Presbyterians--reclaiming a covenanted biblical community within the PC(USA) where unity is derived from a clearly articulated theology, where the common mission is making disciples of Jesus Christ, and where new generations of leaders could be nurtured to speak the gospel into a rapidly-changing world. In 2014, these two organizations blended the best of their ministries together to form The Fellowship Community.
