Pillar Stafford is affiliated with the following entities:
Pillar Stafford is in friendly cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The SBC, founded in 1845, is a national fellowship of Baptist churches. It cooperates with state fellowships of churches called state conventions and county-sized fellowships called associations. Most fundamentally, however, the SBC cooperates with the local church. Messengers to the annual, national convention represent each individual church, not the state convention or local association. By participating in the Cooperative Program, we contribute to the International Missions Board, the North American Missions Board, seminary education, Lifeway Christian Resources, and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.
The North American Mission Board (NAMB) was established in 1845. The focus of NAMB has been focus on sharing Jesus Christ within North America. NAMB has a rich history in establishing many ministries within the Southern Baptist Convention. A few of those ministries are Annie Armstrong, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, World Changers (a youth coed mission project), and in 2011 starting the SEND network to plant evangelistic churches in areas of North America.
Send DC began by a group of Southern Baptist churches with a desire to take the Gospel to the Nation’s Capitol. The goal of Send DC is to plant churches within the Washington, DC metro area, a city where 85% of the 5.8 million people living there do not know Christ as their Savior.
Pillar Stafford has been partnering with Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV) since being a church plant in 2012 with the SBCV, an SBC state entity. The SBCV began in 1996 to specifically focus on fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our monthly contribution supports the missions work of the SBCV.
The Praetorian Project (inspired from Romans 1) began in 2005 with the start of Pillar Church of Dumfries, located on the North side of Marine Corps Base Quantico. The purpose is to establish gospel preaching churches near military installations worldwide and to help service members grow into committed Christ followers.
