Our History & Mission
Pittsburgh Presbytery is a covenant community formed by the triune God, called to share together in the ongoing life and ministry of Jesus Christ, proclaiming and demonstrating the Gospel publicly in word and deed in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our God is a missionary God; we are a missionary people. In response to God’s call, through our congregations and staff, and by means of our money and other resources, we will turn out to the communities of Pittsburgh Presbytery in love, bearing fruit through evangelism, training disciples, serving with mission agencies, working for racial, social and economic justice and strengthening ecumenical bonds.
Pittsburgh Presbytery staff “equips the saints for the work of ministry” in Christ’s name by using our G A M E plan:
- Gathering church leaders regularly to be strengthened for participation in Christ’s mission, personal devotion to Christ’s call, and richer fellowship in Christ
- Assisting congregations through transitions and challenges in their ministry
- Mobilizing presbytery to fulfill Christ’s great commission
- Encouraging and enabling for ministry those whom Christ calls into leadership
