At Discovery we have always tried to think beyond just
ourselves. Whether that be starting new churches here in the Pittsburgh,
serving local charities and supporting important causes, or helping
missionaries in different parts of the world... we think we should strive to
make a difference in the lives of people all over the world. While we
can’t financially support every worthy project, we believe we can make a
significant contribution in a few strategic places God has led us
Mission to El Salvador (Jon and Danielle Snyder)
In 2009, Discovery sent out its first full-time missionaries to the
country of El Salvador. After leading several short term trips to the
country working with orphans and the homeless, Jon and Danielle Snyder
chose to quit their good paying jobs, sell their home and belongings,
leave family and friends and move to El Salvador to make an impact in
people’s lives. Jon and Danielle were original members of Discovery and
were with us from the very beginning. Discovery became the Snyder’s
sending organization and they became our first representatives to this
small country. Click here to read more about Mission to El Salvador.

Christ For The City International (Jake and Becky Hjemvick)
In 2011, Discovery sent out its second full-time missionaries to
the country of El Salvador. Jake and Becky had gone on several short term
trips with Discovery over the years and began to feel the tug of God on their
hearts for the people in the City. They moved their young family to the
city of San Salvador, the largest city in El Salvador. The mission of
Christ For the City International (CFCI) is to help people transform cities by
transforming lives. Their ministries are built to meet the needs of the
most desperate people in the world’s cities - street kids, prostitutes,
orphans, the homeless, the unemployed and the destitute. Click here to

Myanmar Christian Mission
After getting involved with the Burmese refugees living in Pittsburgh,
Discovery made connections with Myanmar Christian Mission and Joshua Leme (a
Burmese national and Pastor). Besides sending monthly support to help
with starting new churches in Myanmar (formerly Burma) we have also provided
aid following devastating cyclones that ravaged the country. In May of
2008 a cyclone left an estimated 200,000 dead and more than a million homeless. Discovery
sent financial aid and 5 water purification systems to help those most in need.
Many homes were re-constructed and thousands of pounds of food and
medical supplies were distributed. To read more about Myanmar Christian
Mission and Joshua Leme click here.
