Heart for Ohio

As a token of appreciation for Ohio churches who financially support Network Ministries, Heartland Conference Retreat Center, and Church Multiplication, registration fees for major events for ministers sponsored by the Network in 2017 (see list below) will be completely waived* for lead pastors and all credentialed AG ministers (and their spouses) who are in good standing with their Network tithes and who regularly attend or are on staff at “Heart for Ohio” churches.

These are the churches who follow the recommendations of the Ohio Ministry Network’s bylaws by financially supporting:

  • Network Ministries monthly with at least 1% of their general fund offerings

  • Heartland Conference Retreat Center with at least __%

  • Ohio Church Multiplication (church planting) with at least __%

  • The combined giving by the church each month for those 3 categories totals at least 2.5% of their general fund offerings

This is our state board of presbyters’ way of saying a heartfelt thanks for the sacrificial and generous contributions these churches and their leaders send so faithfully. In good times and bad, these churches and their leaders make possible the vital and life-giving ministries we enjoy in the Ohio Ministry Network.

*Is there any fine print? Yes, such as:

  • This is for credentialed ministers and spouses only (or lead pastors if not yet credentialed)

  • This is for event registration only – housing, meals, travel, incidentals, etc., are not included

  • This discount cannot be applied until a Heart for Ohio 2017 form has been received by the Network Resource Center (contact Suzan Burris in the Finance Department if you need a form: suzan@ohioministry.net or 614.396.0700, x138)

  • This discount is only available for advance registration, not for onsite registration. Also, “completely waived” only applies during the early bird registration period. After the early bird period ends, the HFO discount will only remove the early bird rate and the registration rate difference will be charged.

  • Ministers/spouses who register in advance but then fail to attend without notification to events@ohioministry.net prior to the start of the event will lose their HFO discount for the next three qualifying events.

2017 events include: Ministers’ Retreat, Synergy, Network Conference, Great Family Adventure & The Forum.

Further, all students from HFO churches receive a $25 discount off their registrations for 2017 summer camps at Heartland.

Thanks to all our ministers and churches for their faithful support!

Who is Jesus?

More than two thousand years ago God sent Jesus Christ into this world. He became one of us, but he did nothing wrong. He showed us what God is like – merciful and kind. He healed the sick people, the blind were made to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk. Some people followed him, and to them he gave a new way of life – God’s way. But others hated Him because He was so good, and he exposed their evil ways.

He gave his own life as a sacrifice, a payment for our sins. He died on the cross to save us. Three days after he died, Jesus Christ came back from the dead. Now He lives in the power of an endless life to meet your need, to be your Saviour, to forgive your sins. Jesus Christ is the only one who can do this for you.

Why We Exist

May God richly bless you today!
