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 Organizations

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


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 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.



Foster and Adoptive Parents Support Group

Are you and your family foster parents or parents of an adoptive child? Join us on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM for a virtual support group where families across The Bible Chapel spend time in Christian community.
