Early in 2006, we (lead pastors Konan and Keri) felt God speak to us about planting a church in East Columbus. Konan, who was serving as the Network Youth Director for the Ohio Ministry Network, decided to resign without even knowing where the church would be planted.
Right after that step of faith, God opened a door for us to acquire a building in Pickerington, Ohio. A small group of friends relocated to be part of our vision to see all of Columbus know Jesus. Our core team really felt that God was calling us to not only plant a church, but to launch a movement. So in November of 2006, the doors were opened and C3 Church was born. Since its inception, C3 has continued to grow and has seen hundreds of people commit their lives to Christ!
After a couple years, C3 began partnering with other leaders to help them plant brand new churches. To do this more effectively, C3 Church created the C4 Network in order to plant churches through relationship, resources, and the releasing of people. The C4 Network has a vision of planting 100 churches in the next 20 years and operates as the church planting arm of C3.
You will often hear us say, “We are a church full of imperfect people, striving to follow a perfect God.” That is so true! Despite our shortcomings, God is using us to fulfill His mission of loving people into a growing relationship with Jesus. It has been an incredible journey so far, and we have only just begun!
