Central Presbyterian Church was greatly interested in missionary work in the black community. In the spring of 1919, the Presbytery’s Committee of Home Missions announced plans to establish a mission in the Black community. They found there was a need for more constructive activities for youth in the community.  In response, an organized mission resulted, known as the "Presbyterian Colored Mission".  As participation continued to grow a new location at the corner of Mary and Coleman Streets was acquired for a new mission, which became the Pittsburgh Mission. On December 1, 1923, Rice Memorial Presbyterian Church was erected and named in honor of Dr. Theron Rice. On January 1, 1924, Reverend George W. Gideon, of Banks County, was hired as pastor of Rice.  Reverend Gideon presided over the first worship services held in the new structure on Easter Sunday 1924.
