Ministries

We are a mission-driven church. We believe it is not only our responsibility to share the gifts of our church, but, indeed, our privilege.

Our mission work not only serves members of our church, but also reaches people throughout the greater Columbus area, the United States and International Communities. Through the work of our ministries, we are able to do God’s work and fulfill the needs of those who God has called us to serve.
