Welcome toMove a Mountain Missions Logo

Rooted in a deep desire to be Jesus for the most vulnerable in the world, Move a Mountain Missions is a Catholic non-for-profit organization that aims to help youth and young adults from the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh grow deeper in their call to service.

We organize and raise funds for local and international Mission Trips, raise funds for particular projects for Mustard Seed Community, and assist in bringing a missionary charism of caring for the most vulnerable among us home to Pittsburgh.

What we doOur Service

How we move mountains.

Serving the Vulnerable

We serve children and adults with disabilities and young mothers in crisis both locally in Pittsburgh and in Jamaica at Mustard Seed Communities.


We raise funds for particular projects for Mustard Seed Community. Currently, we are working to build an adaptive needs sports complex for residents.

Encounters with Christ

We organize and raise funds to send local Pittsburgh high schoolers and college students on mission trips to serve the most vulnerable both locally and internationally and to help them grow deeper in their call to service as Christians.


Our mission teams come home truly transformed by their service experience - with their Catholic faith so enriched, they return to Pittsburgh with a new, giving spirit. It is our desire to do what we can to make this experience possible for more students.

move a mountain missions co-founder dan gallagher "It's amazing to see, we go to serve and help out the residents, but the reality is they do much more for us because they have a joy that is contagious."

We are Mountain Movers.

“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

- Matthew 17:20
