Our Faith Connects Us
and Our Unity Gives Us Strength.
Equipping and Empowering Leaders for the Mission of Jesus
That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
John 17:21 NIV
Why Go It Alone?
Are you a pastor needing assistance with an issue affecting your congregation? A board member facing governance or pastoral opportunities? A young disciple being called to have a greater impact?
When we encourage others to “Give it up to God,” we recognize that we were not created to bear life’s burdens on our own. However, many congregations operating in isolation are left with a heavy cross to carry.
Let us lighten the load and bridge the gap.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
We act as a catalyst among leaders and churches to empower and accelerate the path toward reaching their God-given mission.
As Christian leaders, our goal is to serve as many people as we can according to God’s will.
When we work together as a tribe, we have that power and momentum.
David and I are so thankful for all Ohio Ministries has done to connect us to the larger work of God in Ohio. We have found that through the prayers and accountability of its leadership, we have been equipped in our ministry for the revitalization of the First Church of God in Shelby.”
- Rita Bullock, Lead Pastor of First Church of God (Shelby, OH)
The state office and particularly Rev. Demetrius Booker, our state associate pastor, were tremendously helpful to me in my recent pastoral search process and transition. Whether in providing assistance to the congregation on church life cycles and overall health ahead of the search process, council to the pulpit committee, or the personal support I received from Demetrius, I am incredibly grateful for all our state office does. Numerous emails and phone conversations were crucial in helping me navigate that season of life and ministry and I believe they were a key part of God’s direction for my present place in the kingdom.”
- Tod Huston, Senior Pastor of First Church Ravenna (Ravenna, OH)
Ohio Ministries has helped our church become compliant in bookkeeping procedures, has held training classes for Quickbooks, both individual and groups, and has held lay leader conferences such as Fresh Start. Wintergreen Ledges has benefited from all of this in many ways. The staff is great to work with and knowledgeable about church life. I can highly recommend them!”
- Cathy Eppinger, Church Administrator for Wintergreen Ledges (Akron, OH)
Ministry can easily and quickly become something done in isolation. Ohio Ministries stepped in at a time when both myself and our church needed them. They provided support and encouragement but more than anything else they made us realize that we weren't in it alone. We had a partner and that was a big deal for us."
- Josh Chaffin, Senior Pastor of Creston Community Church (Creston, OH)
