“Ephesians 1:23 promises that when Christ returns, he will fill—or complete—all things. When Christians, as the body of Christ, start new Christian communities in the myriad domains of life, they signpost this future. They demonstrate that there is no sphere where Christ and his church cannot make their home.”

Rev. Dr. Michael Moynagh and Rev. Dr. Michael Adam Beck The 21st Century Christian: Following Jesus Where Life Happens (Manuscript)

As we enter into 2021, there is great hope for what the future holds for our families, our churches, and our communities. Here at the Northwestern Ohio Synod, we are filled with hope about what it means to journey together in this new year, continuing a moment of disciple-making that began with Jesus and has been entrusted to us as we follow Him On The Way.

On the Way is a movement that seeks simple and everyday opportunities to connect with our neighbors who are currently not connected to any faith community. This is a movement of new relationships formed in the sacred spaces that exist beyond our church walls, where Jesus dwells and welcomes us all to witness, worship, and walk together On the Way, for the renewal of Northwestern Ohio and the world.
