How did we come to be? Our roots were formed in a desire to follow the example of Ken Wilson and Emily Swan, co-pastors of Blue Ocean Faith Ann Arbor. Many of us were in similar church environments, with a desire to create a judgement-free community for all people to investigate Jesus and explore a life of faith.
We started meeting as a small group in the fall of 2015 with the intent to plant a church. In February 2016, we started meeting at an office in Clintonville. Later, we moved to a larger facility in Grandview, more suited to meet our growing needs.
While there are many churches in central Ohio who serve the average church-goer, there are plenty of people who wouldn’t consider attending a traditional church. We want to be a place where anyone can come in and explore faith at their own speed without the need to conform to a set of rules and religious cultural expectations.
