Serve the North Side of Pittsburgh helping missionaries share Jesus Christ through athletic, educational, and performing arts activities.


Servant Life partners with a local ministry in Pittsburgh whose mission is to do their part in fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission on the North Side of Pittsburgh by following His model of holistic ministry by investing in the lives of at-risk children, youth, and their families in order to develop responsible followers of Christ.

What will my team be doing? 

On a short-term mission trip to the North Side, you will have the opportunity to serve with one of our many outreach programs (athletics, education, performing arts), assist in numerous construction and renovation needs, and learn how God has been moving in the heart of the city. You will also experience missionary training in order to serve effectively in an urban setting, including prayer walking in our community. Our hope and prayer is that teams would walk away with a sense of urgency to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission with real, practical tools to serve in their own community and beyond.
