“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.”  John 15:5

Rev. John Romig, Senior Pastor

Our Pastor writes:

We try to be real people, figuring it out with a real Jesus in a church that’s just trying to help others and learn more about God. I have been married to Tracy for 19 years and we have two boys that are in the Canal Winchester High School. I Coach JVB Baseball for the CW High School and enjoy Crossfit. Below is a more about us:  
We believe in helping every individual to discern God’s call in their life. We believe that God loves each one of us and desires to lead us all into Christ’s life-giving paths. Therefore, we devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of being the hands and feet of Christ in this world. Our passion and goal is to equip believers for the work of the ministry, while helping people understand God’s love through scripture, prayer, faith, action, and experience.

Values and Seeds of Vision

“A covenant network of congregations in mission:
We are the body of Christ gifted and called in covenant together as Disciples of Christ to be centers of transformation on the new mission frontier of our communities.”


From the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States & Canada, our national presence

Our Identity

“We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”

Our History

Gender Road Christian Church was born from the merging of two Columbus congregations – Southeast Christian Church and Scottwood Church. Strong in their resolve to grow together, the newly formed congregation purchased land and built the current building, which held its first worship service in June 1999. Gender Road Christian Church has always been known as a church that accepts all people, knowing that we are all children of God and for our weekly sayings on the large sign out front.
