Thank you for visiting our website!

*Johnston’s Jottings*

Welcome to the site of the South Central Ohio District Church of the Nazarene. We are so glad you are here!  We are a family of 78 unique congregations located in an area stretching from the state capital of Columbus on the northern edge of the district, to the cities of Portsmouth and Marietta along the Ohio River in the southern part of the state.  Some of our congregations have teamed up to form multi-sites, others remain as individual congregations; still others are brand new works that God is creating among us.

The mission of the International Church of the Nazarene is also our mission: To Make Christ-Like Disciples in the Nations. Our purpose is to equip pastors and congregations on our district to effectively spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We trust that the information you gather from reading these pages will both inspire and encourage you to take advantage of our resources and useful links and if God is calling you to join our team… as a church planter or to pastor an existing congregation, please get in touch!

Rev. Trevor Johnston, District Superintendent
