Who We Are
We exist to connect people to Jesus and to make Jesus known.
Jeff Greenway has a passion for seeing people come to a saving faith relationship with Jesus Christ. He believes that every member of the Body has a distinctive role and function in ministry. Through his commitment to Christ-centered, Bible-based teaching, Jeff leads our church to become all that God has intended and equipped us to be. He is a gifted leader, preacher, teacher and servant and has shepherded the congregation here at Reynoldsburg since 2006. Jeff is a graduate of Mount Union College, Asbury Theological Seminary and Wesley Theological Seminary. He is married to Beth and together they are parents to three adult children and their spouses: Nathan and Rachel, Joe and Suzanne, and Paige and Chris. God has blessed them with eight grandchildren.
We seek to be a thriving hub of life in our community by welcoming all and reaching those who don’t know Jesus. Grounded in Bible-based teaching, we actively engage together in serving, worship, and learning on a regular basis. We exist to connect people of all generations to Jesus and make Jesus known.
- We believe and profess the teachings of historical Christianity.
- We believe that all people were created by God in His image and should therefore matter to us. Everyone is welcome at Reynoldsburg UMC, no matter where they are in their spiritual journey.
- We believe that the Bible is a guidebook from God that we can trust for helping us along our journey.
- We believe God’s very existence is community – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
- We believe that Jesus makes forgiveness possible for everyone – His sacrificial life, death, and resurrection is a gift from God that gives us freedom from the mistakes and failures of our past and freedom to be what God created us to be. We believe embracing faith in Jesus is the only way for this restoration to happen.
- We believe that taking time to investigate the claims of Christ is important; doing so within the context of community provides for a rooted spiritual life.
- We believe that the celebration of Holy Communion is a significant way we remember Christ’s sacrificial lifestyle and anticipate His return. When we participate in the Lord’s Supper as a community, it is a time of both celebration and reflection.
- We believe that baptism is a once-in-a-lifetime initiation into the Christian community. The sacrament is a gift of God’s grace that is available to persons of all ages. While no one needs to be re-baptized, we do offer frequent opportunities to remember your baptism.
