The Mission Barn, formerly known as The Eastbrook Mission Barn, is one of six UMCOR Relief Supply Network depots across the United States.
In 2000, Eastbrook United Methodist Church acquired a former dairy barn as part of its purchase of a new parsonage. In 2008, the church began using the heated office space to store UMCOR cleaning buckets.
Since 2008 they have shipped over $1 million worth of UMCOR kits; built 190+ ramps; developed 4 Satellites in 2 states; Supported 10 ramp-building ministries around their conference; supported several ERT teams with their tool trailers; and are involved with youth and adults with disabilities, recovering addicts, and youth and adults from WPA, East Ohio, West Ohio, and Upper NY in our ministries.
During 2022 they were outgrowing their space at the former dairy barn and started looking for a new home. In early 2023 they purchased a warehouse, only 8 miles away in Shenango Township, near New Castle, to continue the ministries and help them grow. Their new location is 181 Columbus Dr., New Castle, PA 16101.
