What is Per Capita and How You Can Help Church Growth

Per Capita is a fundamental way in which all of the nearly 10,000 congregations and mid councils of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) connect, participate, and share in the work of the wider church.

Per Capita is the primary source of funding for the Office of the General Assembly, and is how Presbyterians mutually and equitably share the costs of coming together to discern the Spirit’s leading for the future.

All Presbyterians are called to take part in the ecclesiastical and administrative work shared by the whole church through per capita giving. All congregations – large and small – are encouraged to participate, either through an annual budget item or through a special direct appeal to their congregations.
