Welcome to the Greater Leipsic Multi-Site Parish!

Located in rural Northwest Ohio, we are five churches who have come together to share our gifts, our passions and our resources to invest in ministry that is greater than ourselves, all for the love of Christ.

Each congregation in the parish has its own unique ministries, from Drama Club and After School programs to Movie Night and Handbell Choirs. Each Sunday we gather for worship, study and fellowship at all of the churches, with the pastors rotating for worship from church to church.

As a parish we also come together for shared ministry and fellowship including Girlfriends and Men's Breakfast, Women of Faith weekends and mission trips. We believe in God's vision that is greater than any one person, any one pastor, any one congregation, God's vision for being and making disciples of Jesus Christ in our rural communities.

So check out our site, then check out our churches. Join us for worship, for study, for fellowship, for ministry, and may God's love be expressed in all we say and do.

The churches of the Greater Leipsic Multi-Site Parish welcome you!
