13 Jan Merger Creates NorthPoint Church
Harvest Community UB church (Toledo, Ohio) merged with another congregation in August, and in October the name was changed to NorthPoint Church to be reflective of the new congregation.
Pastor Brad Wotring writes, “Currently our church is running about 450 people in our two Sunday morning services. That is up from the 30-40 attenders when I came here three years ago. We now have 4 fulltime pastors on staff, 16 small groups up and running, about 60 kids in children’s ministry, and 75 junior and senior high kids in student ministry.
“In November we hosted our third annual Thanksgiving Dinner and Concert where we feed over 600 people from our church and their family and friends for free. During our most recent outreach, in December, we gave away over 200 Christmas trees to people in the community.”
