Earlier this year, the Health Ministries Department of the Ephesus church in Columbus, Ohio, began “Sabbath Walks in the Park.” Members meet every other week in the city’s parks to get some exercise, explore nature and bond with each other in a safe environment.
One thing I have learned through my years as a husband, father and a pastor in various ministry leadership roles is that a leader does not mean you play a more important role than anyone else; a leader is one who serves alongside others in order to meet a united goal.
After filling out an interest card, Cierra Wood recently accepted an invitation to attend the Victory church in Delaware, Ohio, with her five sons. When she heard the Sabbath message, she promptly decided to make a change in her life.
Three pastors from the Central Ohio region of the Allegheny West Conference (AWC) recently met with Columbus Police Chief Thomas Quinlan. The meeting, organized by C. Shaun Arthur, pastor of the Beacon of Hope church in Columbus, centered on discussing newly instituted police reforms, in light of the shootings of Andre Hill and Casey Goodson Jr. by local law enforcement.
