Church History

In 2007, then seminary students Mike Gehrling and Chris Brown committed to prayer walking in Pittsburgh. One year later, God called them to start The Upper Room in Squirrel Hill to reach people without a religious community. The church committed to being a sacramental, contemplative, and missional community to provide people with intimacy and exploration. In 2018, The Upper Room relocated to the Wilkins School Community Center in Regent Square, and in 2019, we called a new pastor, Brendan Ashley. In February 2020, we celebrated the completion of our mission and we formally dissolved as a congregation.
