Beloved Leadership have a passion to see people awakened to their identity and activated to their calling.
Johnny Miller is just a normal guy, who woke up one day and decided that life is to be lived, and not simply observed.
And so, he decided that he would chase after whatever crazy impossible dreams were in his heart.
He realized that he would rather live an impossible life that is marked with the supernatural fingerprint of God, than the mundane life that he had created for himself. (if you must know, he still fails- more than he'd like to admit- and sometimes he just flat out messes up, but what great story is complete without a little drama?)
Beloved is one of those crazy dreams. It was born out of the confident realization the he was not alone. There are others, crazy enough to dream, bold enough to dare, confident that the God who awakened their heart had a beautiful, crazy, impossible story with their name on it.

Brenna and Bryan Bolick
Pittsburgh natives, Brenna and Bryan met leading worship together at Eighth Avenue Place Ministry in Homestead, PA in 2007. After faithfully serving there for over seven years where they became best friends, Brenna and Bryan were married in 2014. As newlyweds they felt God calling them to a new adventure where they helped create a new church plant in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh. Bryan and Brenna served there as Worship Pastors for two years. It was heartbreaking to leave this church family, but they knew God was calling them to a new home where they could worship more freely and deeply enter into God’s throne room- This is their hearts’ desire. As they continued on God’s worship adventure, Brenna and Bryan met with Pastor Johnny at Beloved and they have been serving alongside him since 2017. Together, Bryan and Brenna have over 20 years of worship leading experience, but they are always learning something new in God’s Presence. They are honored to be called to a life of leading God’s beloved Sons and Daughters to intimately minister to their Holy Father through worship. It is what we were made to do. “We are so excited to be part of Beloved and we’ve never felt so at home! We’d love for you to come and experience the Tribe with us!” – Brenna and Bryan

WHAT WE BELIEVE
As a community, what binds us to one another are these elemental truths.
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Spirt — God is real. He seeks to encounter us and to be encountered.
We value the presence, gifts, and fruit of the holy spirit. We believe that the fruit and gifts of the holy spirit are essential and operating in the body of christ today. we assert that, at best, gifts of the spirit void of the fruit of the spirit is magic, and that the fruit of the spirit without the gifts of the spirit is humanism.
Community — God is love. We will seek to be like god. to love without condition, to give extravagantly, to do good.
Beloved is a multicultural multigenerational tribe who believes that the kingdom works best when people belong, then be-loved, then become, then behave.
Mission — God is here. We believe that every child of god, who has been awakened by his love will be fueled by that love to make earth look like heaven.
To do justice is to worship.
Creativity — God is creator. We value creativity and art, as we believe that creativity is divinely and purposefully placed within humanity and touches every sphere of life.
Foundations — God is unchanging. We value the bible, the Apostles creed, and the historical foundations of the church.
