Founded in the midst of extreme gang violence in 1996 in East Liberty of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania by Pastor Jacque Fielder, Nabhi Christian Ministries (NCM) was established with the primary purpose to improve the quality of life for its neighbor by proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom through worship shaped by sound exegesis to produce transformational leadership in God's people, including the impoverished, marginalized and outcast who struggle to overcome the challenges of everyday life to meet their basic needs. NCM has grown to become one of the largest outreach churches in Pittsburgh. The organization expanded beyond East Liberty in 2004 with the addition of a Hardship Program in Larimer/Lincoln/Lemington. Since then, we have extended our reach into Homewood, Garfield, Hill District and East Hills in 2006; and throughout Allegheny County in 2010. We currently administer Hardship programs by handling application intake for the Dollar Energy Fund while also connecting those in need with other forms of assistance. The demand for assistance from our church has grown significantly due to increased costs of everyday living expenses and severe weather conditions. To meet the need, we rely on the generosity of individual donors and 40 utility companies partnered with the Dollar Energy Fund. Dollar Energy Fund’s unique funding model provides a dollar-for-dollar match from partnering utility companies for every donation received. The utility companies also make a separate donation to cover Dollar Energy Fund administrative fees, so 100 percent of all individual donations are used to provide utility assistance grants to limited-income households.
NCM is the recipient of numerous awards since its existence including, the 2019, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Community Service Award for ongoing service and unwavering dedication to community outreach & engagement and the 2015 Jefferson and Soroptimist Awards for Outstanding Public Service for establishing the first African American Male Urban 4H Program Curriculum for the City of Pittsburgh through Penn State Extension.
NCM has been recognized eight times by the United States Congress, State of PA, Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh for its outreach efforts for improving Pittsburgh neighborhoods and reducing gang violence; for appreciation of dedication, enthusiasm, cooperation and tireless community work; for service and civic contribution to the City of Pittsburgh; for tireless work and effective leadership towards the goals of making Pittsburgh a more peaceful and loving place; and for all its efforts in helping so many of those in need of aid in the city.
