About My Church Plant

River City Church is located in an urban community on the edge of Pittsburgh. It began in 2016 with a small group of people who were radically changed by God’s amazing grace. Our desire is for others to hear the good news as well.
River City Church in Pittsburgh exists to glorify God as we make, mature and multiply disciples of Jesus Christ through gospel-focused worship, gospel-formed community and gospel-fueled service.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


The people in our community have many physical, mental and psychological needs. Pray for lost and broken individuals to find healing and forgiveness in Jesus. Pray that God would save those who are entrapped by empty religious systems that offer no real hope. Pray that God would raise up workers to join the harvest and for mature believers to lead others in their spiritual growth.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with our work. Commit to long-term missions support with us as a missionary partner. Pray for us. Send or recommend a worship leader to join in the ministry.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
