- Our Challenge:
We cannot and will not rest until there is a vital, evangelizing, discipling, reproducing church within driving distance of each of the 3 million people in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
- We exist to strengthen those existing churches and empower them to more effectively share the gospel in their community.
- In addition, we place a premium on strategically and prayerfully starting new churches in those areas not currently served by a Southern Baptist church.
- Our association accepts responsibility for 9 counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania from I-80 in the north to the West Virginia border in the south.
- There are 3 million people living in our association (approximately 2 million unchurched) and only 60 churches
- There is one SBC church for every 61,225 people in Southwestern Pennsylvania (this number is 1,452 in the state of Alabama)
