Tri County Church of God is a highly relevant and relationship-driven church located in DuBois, PA. Planted by Dave Bish twenty-one years ago, it has become one of the thirty largest churches in the Church of God (Anderson, IN) movement. Founded in 1995 Tri County Church consists of believers who have discovered the joy and purpose in following Christ. As Christ-followers, Tri County Church strives to be a caring group of people who share the love and compassion of God with those around them.


Averaging about 1000 attenders each weekend, it is a large, multi-site church with a great past and hopeful future. The leaders and staff of Tri County have continued to advance the Great Commission, since the inception of the church, and are ready to continue this legacy of impact alongside the new incoming Lead Pastor.

The Greater DuBois Area has the relaxed lifestyle of a small town that appeals to visitors and residents alike. Conveniently located in West/Central Pennsylvania on Interstate 80, it is less than a day's drive from major cities in the Midwest, East Coast, and Canada. It is about an hour’s drive from State College, PA, and a two-hour drive from Pittsburgh, PA. That makes DuBois a convenient stop for travelers, and a perfect home base. Offering a relaxed lifestyle for its residents, the city also offers good health care, education, and youth athletic options. Additionally, the large expanse of forests and waterways make DuBois and great base for outdoor recreation. The successes of DuBois are due to the vision and hard work of its residents. They follow the example of the town's namesake, John DuBois—entrepreneur, inventor, and visionary—whose legacy continues to thrive in the community today.
