Praise Point is the result of two smaller churches sharing vision for more effective ministry. These two churches combined in 2006 to address the needs of both the congregations and the region. Located in the rural village of Willshire, OH, a town of only 400 people, Praise Point has people who will travel for over 40 minutes just to be a part of what God is doing here.
Today, the church has grown to about 200 (bumping to just under 300 on special holidays) and impacts our region in practical and tangible ways. The growth potential here is exciting. Our slogan is “Teach. Train. Transform.” We diligently teach the Scriptures, Train in righteousness and watch God Transform hearts and lives. We are a teaching church. We desire to be known as a church that holds the Scriptures high as our authority for life and godliness. It’s been a joy and an honor to see so many lives transformed by the power of God.
We are a member church of the United Brethren in Christ, the first American-born denomination. Famous UBers such as Francis Scott Key and the Wright brothers are a part of our history. For more information, check us out on Facebook or our website.
