What is Fellowship 4:12?
Pastor Sheldon & Fay Williams
Fellowship 4:12 is a Satellite Church Campus of Allegheny Center Alliance Church. The name of this new campus is adopted from Acts 4:12: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
Our aim is to bring help, hope and healing to our Homestead neighborhoods by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and His kingdom.
Pastor Sheldon Williams and his wife Fay are the husband and wife team leaders of the Fellowship 4:12 satellite campus. Pastor Sheldon and Fay are part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance and both have additionally completed requirements to be Marriage and Family Therapists. Fay has authored several books on marriage and family enrichment and therapy.
Homestead, with its rich past as a major steel manufacturing center, has been challenged in its revitalization as part of the renaissance of the city of Pittsburgh. It's an emerging community challenged with pockets of poverty, homelessness, addiction, crime, broken marriages and families.
The leadership of ACAC's elders and pastors, after much prayer and fasting, concluded that the Holy Spirit was leading us to start a new community of faith in obedience to “following Jesus in diverse community.”
We officially launched Fellowship 4:12 this year on Easter weekend, and as we begin establishing our presence and ministry, we look forward to impacting the greater community and sharing what we've learned on the north side about effective, diverse urban ministry with the wonderful people of Homestead.

What is unique about the vision for ministry in Homestead?
Fellowship 4:12 is a biblical and Christ centered family-oriented ministry. We are seeking to bring help, hope and healing to marriages, parents, children, and enabling healthy relationship functioning as the basic spiritual foundation to God’s kingdom and man’s society. The family is God’s design to expand Christ’s kingdom into the world in the framework and mission of the church.
Why is ACAC planting in Homestead?
Allegheny Center Alliance Church (ACAC) has a rich history of expanding the gospel of the Kingdom beyond its borders. Fellowship 4:12 is part of a larger mission at ACAC called “Expanded Influence” to evangelize areas which would result in new churches. Our pastoral and elder teams, after prayer and fasting, determined that the Spirit was steering us to plant in places that other churches typically would not plant. Homestead area is where we believe God is calling us to worship, grow, share and serve.
