At the heart of the Pittsburgh Dream Center (PDC) is our desire to rescue those who have been enslaved by hunger, homelessness, poverty, human trafficking, and other life controlling issues. We do this by providing hope, empowerment, and the love of Christ both in word and deed in our four focus areas- Children, Community, Discipleship, and Hunger Relief. We seek to meet urgent physical and spiritual needs through our many outreach and discipleship programs.
Our Church is an important part of the Pittsburgh Dream Center mission as we believe each person has a God given plan and purpose. Our goal is to help you discover and live out that plan and purpose.
Pastor Gary and Amanda met in church in their hometown of Somerset, PA. After getting married they moved to Pittsburgh, PA where they both had successful business careers and started a family by having four children- Hannah, Andrew, Caleb, and Jonathan.
After ten years in Pittsburgh Gary and Amanda believed the Lord was speaking to them to go to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK to get trained for ministry. The couple along with their children headed west leaving family, friends, and successful careers behind. While in Oklahoma the family grew under the teaching of Pastors Billy Joe and Sharon Daugherty of Victory Christian Center, and helped at the Tulsa Dream Center.
The Brougher’s believed they would return back to Pennsylvania to minister one day, but a dream started in them after Gary took a missions trip to the Los Angeles Dream Center. It was on this mission trip when God spoke that he, Amanda, and their family were to return back to Pittsburgh and start a Dream Center. In August 2011 the Pittsburgh Dream Center began with its first outreach- Adopt-A-Block.
The mission of the Pittsburgh Dream Center Pittsburgh is to directly impact the issues that afflict Pittsburgh communities by reconnecting people to God and a community of support by providing free human services that address immediate and long-term needs in the area of hunger, poverty, homelessness, education, and human trafficking.
The Pittsburgh Dream Center is also reaching Pittsburgh neighborhoods through various outreach programs. The acts of kindness are simple, but the impact is grand. The Dream Center is looking for volunteers to assist in reaching and building the hurting and hopeless. You can learn by visiting our official website by clicking on the button below.
Our church services are committed to creative, compelling, challenging presentation of God’s truth. Our format is accessible to anyone, no matter where they are on their life’s journey. This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts.
In every service, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message based on Scripture that will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide you with a strong Biblical foundation.
We have live, upbeat worship with a full band, as well as intimate songs of worship. Everyone worships in his or her own unique way – for some, that means singing, clapping, and raising their hands; for others, it means quietly reflecting on the words. At a PDC service, you’re welcomed to do what comes from the heart in praise to God.
PDC is committed to helping children grow from the knowledge of Christ, to a relationship with Christ, to becoming a lifelong, committed follower. We create a safe, exciting atmosphere where kids can discover God’s calling while building a relationship with Jesus Christ.
No matter what age your child or children are we believe it’s never too early to start sharing God’s Word with them. Our nursery ministry not only offers quality care for your young one(s), but we share biblical truths in simple and active ways.
