International (Missions)


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 to. 


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 read more about Christ For The City in El Salvador.





Myanmar Christian Mission (Joshua Leme)

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.
