We have activities and events that will make your experience in Pittsburgh more enjoyable.


We exist so that you don't have to be alone during your time here, and we want to offer you many opportunities to build relationships while you're here! 

Our hope for every PRISM gathering is that you would feel welcomed and loved. As you get settled into Pittsburgh, we encourage you to meet new people, and our events are a great place to do just that!

You will discover that our greatest passion is discussing, learning, and growing to be more like God. And we can know God personally because of what the Bible has told us about Him!
