In 1993, after personally experiencing homelessness in Colorado, Mike and Tina Wurschmidt with their two children came to Western Pennsylvania. In response to God's call, they attended seminary which led to organizing a small team of committed pioneers to worship and walk on the streets, feeding those in need and offering the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Over the years, Shepherd's Heart Fellowship has held evening services in several locations around the city. We now own the church building at 13 Pride Street in Uptown, one block from Mercy Hospital. We currently run services on Sunday evenings at 5:15pm, a drop-in center, clothing and food donations, a veteran's home, and many more services.
