Shining Christ's love and light on our neighbors

Outreach is right here.

Outreach demands your heart, but it doesn't demand a plane ticket. To declare Christ's glory among the nations, you can start with your own zip code.

Our Outreach Ministry works with community partners and organizes community projects that serve people in need right here at home. Just like their counterparts in the far corners of the world, local folks in need include those who are hungry, homeless, alone, and lost.

So to do outreach work, you don't need to update your passport. You just need to venture right outside your door!

Community Partners

The Bible Chapel partners with community organizations who share our belief that Jesus is the ultimate healer. These partners continually bring people into a relationship with him, and generate true restoration, one person at a time.

 


City Mission

Next door to our Washington Campus, City Mission is a homeless shelter that provides not only hot meals but also Christian counseling, job training, legal services, and a medical clinic.

How We Help

The Bible Chapel helps City Mission with onsite volunteering and support for events, particularly the huge annual dessert festival known as Sweet Sunday.


Light of Life Rescue Mission

On Pittsburgh's North Side, Light of Life meets hurting people right where they are by offering emergency food and shelter as well as long-term Christian recovery programs.

How We Help

The Bible Chapel supports Light of Life with its year-round programming and events, such as the Tunch and Wolf Walk for the Homeless.

Community Organizations


In addition to our community partners, The Bible Chapel also serves the following community organizations:

 

Sto-Rox Elementary School

Near our Robinson Campus, Sto-Rox has a proud steel-town heritage combined with the challenges that the decline of the steel industry in our region left behind. Many families here live below the poverty line.

How We Help

The Bible Chapel assists Sto-Rox teachers by tutoring, helping in classrooms, and running regular book drives. We also help provide students with school supplies and Christmas gifts.

 

Choices Pregnancy Services

Located in Coraopolis, also near our Robinson Campus, Choices Pregnancy Services cares for both women and men facing unplanned pregnancies. Choices provides testing, counseling, and care that encourages families to choose life for their unborn babies.

How We Help

The Bible Chapel helps Choices provide resources and volunteers for all its programs and services. We also contribute to Choices through our yearly Baby Bottle Campaign.

 

Family Guidance

On the North Side near our partner Light of Life, Family Guidance is the power behind our Mentoring Ministry. Their expert child advocates identify kids in need across the Pittsburgh region, screen and train mentors, and carefully make mentor/mentee matches that last.

How We Help

The Bible Chapel partners with Family Guidance to recruit mentors, host mentor information sessions and trainings, and offer our facilities and resources for mentor/mentee events.

Community Projects


The Bible Chapel organizes several community projects that reflect our commitment to children and their families. 

 


Baby Bottle Campaign

For a few weeks each year, we ask you to keep a change bottle instead of a change jar! We provide you with the bottles, and all proceeds go to local Pregnancy Resource Centers and their efforts to help families choose life. 


Operation Christmas Child

We partner with Samaritan's Purse for OCC, a locally-organized project with an international mission: to distribute shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts and the salvation message to needy children around the globe.
