Sanctuary Columbus Church - Columbus, OH

Planted in 2010 – Lead Pastor, Richard Johnson

Sanctuary Columbus Church is a missional church dedicated to reaching out to neighbors within its local community. Four years ago the leaders of Sanctuary prayed that God would open a door to connect with the growing refugee and immigrant population in the city. In 2013, the impossible started to happen — God not only led them to a people group, but also partnerships and a place to do missional outreach. Sanctuary Columbus partners with World Relief and Lifepoint Church to conduct ESL and citizenship classes, tutoring...

Planted in 2013 – Lead Pastor, William Mack
