Download a report to learn more about the city.
The church life in Pittsburgh is focused primarily on the campus work at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt), though the need to gain more families is of equal priority (and not necessarily separate). While the saints in Pittsburgh welcome all who would like to move here, there is a particular need for young, typical American families to migrate to the Pittsburgh area in order to share the burden of shepherding and gaining the local typical American population. Because the church in Pittsburgh does not have a meeting hall, the saints meet in homes and on the campuses. The church recently established a new church entity and began a children’s service schedule, and it supports the two Christians on Campus clubs at CMU and Pitt.
