Worthington Christian Church

Worship Minister



Why I Love This Opportunity

Mike Haight


The new Worship Minister at Worthington Christian Church will have the opportunity to serve in a growing congregation committed to reaching its community for the gospel. The Worship Ministry is healthy and is known for musical excellence. The new leader will have the opportunity to build upon this foundation while leading the church toward new heights.

About This Organization

Worthington Christian’s vision is to “Follow Jesus Together.” The church is passionate about reaching those who do not yet know Jesus. They strive to accomplish this evangelistic work by encouraging relational outreach among their members and through Community Impact Partnerships with organizations such as Pregnancy Decision Health Center, Habitat for Humanity, local school supports, and Lifeline Christian Missions. They are keenly aware of the tremendous growth in their surrounding area and the need for healthy Christ-followers to be engaged in the community.

Since its beginnings in 1975, the church has grown to an average weekend worship attendance of more than 1300, gathering over three services at 8:30, 9:45, and 11:11 AM each Sunday. Recently, the church has been prayerfully working toward “re-envisioning” its buildings and property to better serve its members, their families, and their community. This initiative launched in 2023 and is called REACH. In recent months, this initiative led to a renovation of Worthington’s kids and student ministry spaces. Now, work has begun on a complete renovation of the church’s worship space, including updated finishes, expanded seating capacity, new theater-style seats, new AVL systems, and LED screens.
