Geographical Areas of the Ohio Ministry Network


Based on 14 separate groupings of Ohio’s 88 counties, churches and ministry leaders identify locally with a specific geographic area. See the areas listed below for each ministry leader and contact information. Credentialed ministers and non-credentialed ministers associated with churches and ministries in each area gather monthly for area ministers meetings. These incorporate networking, idea sharing, spiritual encouragement, prayer, and special speakers or initiatives during the year. Additionally, statewide ministries, such as Youth Ministries, Girls Ministries, Boys Ministries, etc., all have area representatives who coordinate and serve the leaders of these ministries at the local church level. Contact your Area presbyter or ministry representative for further information … and get connected!
