Our History

Pine Valley Bible Camp began in November, 1961 to serve as a youth camp for the churches of Beaver and Lawrence Counties. Around 1988, that ministry ceased to exist and Pine Valley became a place for local churches to use as a rental facility.


In May of 1995, the Lord called Matthew and Susan Reichart to Pine Valley to begin The Nehemiah Project, its partner ministry of providing residential camping to Pittsburgh’s youth. The ministry has since expanded to include a variety of communities in and around Pittsburgh and even neighboring states (such as Ohio, Virginia, and New Jersey).

Power of Camp

Camp facilitates transforming encounters

with Creation, Community, and Jesus Christ.


Creation is a powerful preacher no man can deny (Romans 1:20). God whispers to the soul when we encounter his creative beauty, His vast majesty, and His staggering complexity. We retreat from the city and unplug from technology to experience God in the midst of His creative beauty.


Transcendent Community is the result of living unselfishly, loving unconditionally, and serving sacrificially. Life is Relationship and our relationships will be marked by Love.


The Gospel of Jesus Christ communicated and demonstrated Love on a daily basis. The Truth of God's word will not be compromised, and obedience to His word will be our highest calling: namely to love the Lord your God with all of your heart and to love others more than you love yourself.
