Who we are

E-mail Print PDF

We are (PCAI) PARAGON CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL, INC. -  PCAI is officially and legally recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) and holds a "Group Status" in which it has been given the authority by the IRS to issue the 501(c)(3) to qualified religious organizations referred to as "subordinates." Each ministry (subordinate) is autonomous and sovereign operated by its' own governing board.

PCAI was organized and chartered in 1976 under the name "Christian Ministries" - a local non-denominational religious organization in Monroe, Louisiana. In 1988, the leadership with over forty years of ministry experience, met to discuss a fresh vision for soul winning, evangelism, church planting, missions, and Christian education.  During this meeting they expanded the organization nationally and internationally under the name of Association of Evangelical Gospel Assemblies. In 2011 the primary legal name was changed to PARAGON CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL, INC. to better express the vision and purpose of the ministry maintaining the former name as a tradename. Our desire is to reach out to the whole Body of Christ with the ministry resources God has given us.


PCAI can help you receive your ministry credentials (Licensed & Ordination through our ministerial fellowship) for qualified applicants (both men and women), and offers the 501(c)(3) tax exempt status under our group exemption to various types faith-based charitable and religious based ministries.  We can do in 30 days what would take one to three years if you acted alone in obtaining your 501(c)(3) status directly from the IRS. What a great benefit! You can remain independent...yet connected (autonomous and sovereign). Being a fellowship, we differ from a denominational structure.  As such, we adhere to and believe that your Christian nonprofit organizations should operate autonomously. Therefore, all property and assets are held in the name of your ministry and under the guidance of your board of directors. To be in compliance with the IRS rulings, we only require that the president of the board hold credentials/membership with PCAI.


Already obtained your 501(c)(3)? We offer an affiliation program for ministries for the purpose of fellowship and networking.
One of the primary missions of PCAI is fulfilled through its educational divisions - Omega Bible Institute & Seminary and Evangel Christian University of America - training hundreds of indigenous ministers and those wanted to learn more about the Bible in many countries and in the USA. Students from numerous denominations enroll in a par excellence study program to earn a bachelor, master, or doctorate degree.  When you become a member of PCAI, you become part of the vision to educate laymen and ministers around the globe for the glory of God. 

A ministry TO and FOR ministry professionals, PCAI is committed to helping individuals like YOU move forward in the work HE has called you to.
