About Us

Our Mission

To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world

Our Discipleship Path

Come Worship

The first step on The Path is to Come Worship. It is in worship that we experience God and respond to the grace God has made available to us through Jesus Christ. This is a great first step, but it is not the end of The Path. Now we are ready to go to the next step, to Build Faith.

Build Faith

The second step on The Path is to Build Faith. This normally occurs in a smaller group than when we all gather for worship. In a smaller group, we find a safe place to explore what faith means in the midst of real life. Through life group conversations, studies, and experiences we take steps to trust God and build faith. As we take this step, we are making progress, but there is still more ahead of us. The next step is to Love People.

Love People

The third step on The Path is when we turn our God given abilities and desires outward, and we actively Love People as the hands and feet of Christ. This is where we take notice of the people around us, perhaps those whose names we do not know, and intentionally love them as Christ would love them. We meet them where they are, love them as they are, and invite them to join us on The Path.

Ministry Teams

Our ministry teams are the life of the church. These volunteer-led teams are full of individuals who partner and work behind the scenes and center stage and everywhere in between to make Asbury happen. See how you can be a part and join a team today!

Outreach Ministries

John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, taught that we pursue our faith in community and action with others. We practice a social holiness. We insist that personal salvation always involves Christian mission and service to the world. The United Methodist Church has a long history of action and advocacy for social justice.
At Asbury, we are moving in our local community with such programs as Mission Columbus (our construction ministry), Pit Stop (taco church for high schoolers), and the Asbury Conservatory (free music lessons for kids). We support local efforts like Transformational Living Ministries (recovery ministry) and national efforts like the Appalachian Service Project with our Youth and Red Bird Mission. We support global mission efforts through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and a number of other mission organizations.

Kids Ministries

The heart of kid's ministry at our church is to teach kids about who God is and how His word applies to their lives in creative and memorable ways. Through engaging teaching, supportive environments, and close knit small group classes, we guide kids towards a better understanding of what it means to have a real relationship with God. We want kids to know that the Bible is full of interesting stories that matter in their lives today, that fun and games are definitely allowed at church, that worship can be full of loud music and silly dancing, and that there are adults in the church who truly want to love and lead them closer to Jesus. In other words, we want them to know that where God is, life is a lot more fun!

Youth Ministries

Student ministry is such a huge part of what we do at our church. We want to guide our students in developing a personal faith in Christ as they step into their specific roles in the story He's writing with their lives. We work hard to create environments that engage students in good conversation about God, encouraging them to ask questions, search out answers, and truly learn to listen to His leading in their lives. And maybe even have a little fun while they're at it! After all, if life in Christ is truly the best life we can live, shouldn't we encourage our students to enjoy living it to the fullest?

Life Groups

Our life groups represent opportunities for all people to grow. Life is messy.Our small groups provide an opportunity to live life together and help each other through these messy times. New bible studies, Sunday school classes, small groups, and other life groups form and disband over time. To take a first step, we encourage you to join our open bible study on Wednesday nights at 6 pm. From there, we can get you plugged into other life groups that fit your interests.
