East End Ecclesia

Organization Description: 

East End Ecclesia is a new multicultural, missional church located in Pittsburgh's East End. As a multicultural church we seek to reflect the reconciliation granted through Christ by tearing down the "walls that once divided" to see the diverse groups of people united under Christ. As a missional church we believe that the church exists for God's mission of redemption, reconciliation, restoration within our community and city as a whole. We believe God's mission does not end in the growth of the local church, but believe that God grows His church for the sake of His mission within our world.

We are a very new church plant that uses a liturgical structure while having a more baptistic expression within our services. Though small at the moment our church consists of young and old, working class and those in poverty, white and black.
