To provide an effective and meaningful community ministry to all the families and individuals residing in the geographic area around the participating congregations. To extend the ministry of the church to all people by mediating the saving grace of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. Acting as the cooperative agent of the member congregations. Wilkinsburg Community Ministry develops and engages in activities and outreach programs aimed at meeting physical, social, economic and spiritual needs of all people in the community. The ministry is currently supported by twenty congregations, along with judicatories, foundations and civil organizations.
The Wilkinsburg Community Ministry began as a cooperative effort of ten congregations in Wilkinsburg in April 1968. The original steering committee was composed of laity and clergy from the Methodist, Lutheran, United Church of Christ, Episcopal, and the Christian Church of Wilkinsburg. The Board of Directors was formed with two lay people and one clergy person from each of the cooperating congregations. Along with the part-time chaplain, the late Samuel McGill, the steering committee sought to serve as mediator in the racial unrest among the youth of the community and help them deal with the social forces affecting their lives.
