About Us:
In 2016, we founded our small community with several students who attend the University of Pittsburgh. We currently consist of one married couple and eight single young adults who attend university or work.

We are conveniently located in the Schenley Heights neighborhood of Pittsburgh, adjacent to Oakland and within walking distance of several universities and hospitals. Behind our house is a deck that is perfect for barbeques with neighbors and relaxing after a day of work or study. We also have a yard that is a great space for singing together in the evening and playing games. We are located very near to a reservoir which affords stunning panoramic views of the city.

Connecting with Neighbors:
Our neighbors have welcomed us warmly. We are quickly finding opportunities to join in with other churches and Bible study groups. We look forward to hosting many of our own events in our back yard or dining room.

Point of Interest:
Our house is nearly 100 years old and was recently renovated. We were invited to put Early Christian symbols on the front of the building so it is easily recognizable from the street.

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

The Bruderhof has an open-door policy. No matter who you are, we are delighted to meet and spend time with you. All Bruderhof communities host both drop-in and overnight guests every week. Some visits are purely social; others are deep explorations of faith and possible membership. Some visits involve ice cream and horse-cart rides; others revolve around spiritual conversations and guidance. Whatever your visit will be, we look forward to getting to know you!

Praying for His Persecutors


This week, as our country celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and simultaneously realized just how far we are from his vision of racial peace and justice, I was reminded of a film I watched last year. Accidental Courtesy tells the story...

Advice from My Dad: Work on the Basics


Mr. Dileo gave our senior composition class what I thought was a really sappy assignment in our last few weeks at Warwick Valley High: we had to create a scrapbook-style collection of memories from the past eighteen years. But one page of the book...
