Our Youth Ministry enables 6th-12th grade children of our members, our neighbors, and others in the Oakland community to flourish as we mobilize and deploy families, volunteers, and intergenerational relationships within a sturdy framework. This framework of relationships, programs, and opportunities includes small discipleship groups, Sunday School classes, intergenerational worship services, film and book clubs, and Friday HangOuts.
Everyone is welcome! Email our Youth Leader Matthew for more information.
Our University Ministry is an interdenominational Christian fellowship for undergraduate students, and is in partnership with the Coalition for Christian Outreach. We provide opportunities to connect with God and others through various Bible Studies and our large group fellowship. It is a safe place for those who have been a Christian their whole life, or those who know nothing about Christianity, to ask more of these honest questions and grow in their faith. We serve the greater-Oakland area including Chatham, CMU, Carlow, and University of Pittsburgh.
We believe that Christ is our true identifier. This is something that we wish for every college student to know.
When Christ looks at you, he says, “Mine.” You are His.

Young Adult Ministry: Rooted
Scripture points out that there is a way of wisdom, a path to walk in that will result in rest for our souls. As graduate students and young adults at Bellefield, we strive together to follow that path. We do that through small groups meant to encourage, instruct, and lift one another up. We do it through practices like service and hospitality. We do it through monthly gatherings of all young adults and grad students called Rooted.
Each of these programs and practices is meant to help guide us as we make these trajectory-setting decisions. More than that though, they are helping us answer the most important question of our 20’s and the rest of our lives: who is Jesus and what impact does he have on our lives?
We’d love to have you join us walking the path.

For the adults in our community we offer a number of ways to engage in discipleship. Sunday Classes, Sunday Morning Worship, and Men’s and Women’s ministries meet in order to fellowship and to present the life changing love of Jesus Christ, in order that people may come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior, grow as Christ’s disciples, and serve Christ in the church and in the world.
Sunday, September 20th: Sunday Classes for adults will resume Online. Link will be in the weekly email each week.
Our Adult Sunday School class is titled “A Man After My Own Heart.”
We will study the narrative events that lead directly to David’s anointment starting at 1 Samuel 13) through to the end of 2 Samuel, as well as all the Davidic Psalms. The goal is to get a holistic view of David’s character by studying both his life and his compositional output together. Each week will include discussions of both narrative readings and psalms.
The readings for these classes can be found here.
You can email the office for more information on Adult Discipleship.
