Sharing the Life Changing Good News of Jesus Christ
In these first decades of the 21st Century, Pittsburgh Lutherans are giving birth to a renewed enthusiasm for the mission of the Gospel. Ten congregations have begun to respond to God’s Call for transformation. They have discovered that the best way to live into this calling is through an intentional cooperative ministry. We call it "Pittsburgh Lutheran United Ministries" (PLUM).
Gradually our members are learning that faithfulness to the challenge of the Gospel requires a move out of the confinement of our church buildings and unbinding the restrictions of traditionalism. This will renew the congregations’ commitment to the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28.19-20)
