Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

The Missio Dei Team has been serving with Vintage since their launch in Easter of this year. This has been an amazing partnership and experience for the team as we continue to move forward in planting a church in Monroeville. This partnership has been a way to serve within the local church, mentorship by other pastors, and provided an environment to actively work through leadership, and planting strategies in a way that would not be possible otherwise.
Missio Dei has also seen an increase in those the LORD has brought on board for the mission of planting a church in Monroeville! Aaron and Kristen Dye have joined the Missio Dei Team, moving up from Oklahoma as well as Peggy Tomlinson and Diana Liebling, residents of Monroeville who see the vision of a Gospel multiplying church and have joined the team! We are thankful for them as they have immediately began serving in the local church in volunteer capacities faithfully.
Thank You to the Partners
I wanted to take a moment within this update focused on partnership to thank you, the partners. To those who labor in prayer for us, to those who support financially, to those who advocate for us, to those who send help our way by dedicating your time - thank you. Partners like you more important than words can convey. You have not just financially supported us but also been incredible encouragements to our team, spurring us on to continue the work of laboring for His Kingdom.
In Pittsburgh, there are currently 7 active church plants for a population of over 2 million. Your support of teams like us, is paving the way for a movement of churches to be planted in this city. As Missio Dei approaches the launching season of our plant, we would ask you to consider continuing to support us as we build to a healthy launch season so that we might not just be a church that makes it, but rather a church that multiplies and sends Christians to plant churches all over Pittsburgh, the State, Country, and world.
Is God Calling you to Pittsburgh?
We are looking for a diverse group of godly men and women to join us in Pittsburgh. We are literally asking you to drop what you are doing and move your life into the unknown with us in a new city. The truth is, you can be that Gospel light in the workplace that someone would never have without you. You can be a gospel light to neighbors we will never meet.
If you think God might be calling you to move your life to Pittsburgh with us, I’d encourage you to visit https://www.missiodeicc.com/join-our-launch-team.html.
Become a Bridge Partner
We are seeking 446 people to become the backbone of our support here in Pittsburgh. With only the change you would use to buy a few cups of coffee, the 446 of us can raise over $100,000 each year to support the planting of a new church.
If you have $20 to spare each month and would love to partner with us to reach Pittsburgh, I’d invite you to become a Bridge Partner by signing up at https://www.missiodeicc.com/about.html.
