Our Story

How it all started...

In November of 2013, just over a dozen adults planted a church in Gibsonia, PA. The goal: to saturate the route 8 corridor with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Since then, people have partnered with Advance from all over the Pittsburgh region with the same goal; demonstrating and declaring the good news of salvation!

Qualitative Growth

Men, women, teenagers, and children learn, grow, and are equipped  through Sunday gatherings, community groups, training events, and ongoing discipleship.

Over 70% of regular attenders and partners are in community groups, volunteer regularly, and faithfully support the church's work in advancing the gospel work of Jesus Christ locally and around the world.

What's next?

Phase I included Advance's launch and years of steady growth. Looking forward, Phase II included both morning worship on Sundays and the expansion of pastoral and support staffing. This  step created more room for people of all ages and backgrounds to respond to the gospel, grow in faith, thrive in community, and worship in unity.

Ultimately, we believe the Lord is leading us to Phase III, which includes purchasing land and building a facility. Here, current and future generations from  our region will experience and belong to a gospel-centered church whose impact is realized locally and globally for the glory of Christ.
