Description of Organization

North Cincinnati Community Church (North Cincy) is a mid-size PCA church in the rapidly growing northeastern suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio. Worship attendance averages 171, with additional families participating via live-stream. Our 2021-22 budget is $800K, and we employ two assistant pastors and five staff (2FT/3PT).

North Cincy’s theology is rooted in the Protestant Reformation. Our worship is confessionally-reformed and liturgical, blending traditional and contemporary elements. The congregation is multi-generational, (0-22, 40%; 23-50, 30%; 50+, 30%). The Lord has placed a significant number of adoptive and foster families - nearly one in ten - in our midst, and many new families have joined our fellowship in the past 18 months. We have a legacy of church planting (2004-2012) and actively support nearly 30 global ministry partners.

It is our deep desire that all things be done in joyful submission to King Jesus as we seek to extol his name and bring him glory! And yet our human efforts are surely imperfect. Some of North Cincy’s aspirations and challenges include:

  • Increasing outreach and Gospel impact in our local community. To do that well, we must better prepare and equip ourselves to engage, love, and welcome people with sensitivity, grace, and truth, against a backdrop of many divisive cultural issues. We also desire to use our property (27 acres) and facility more strategically to engage the community.
  • Strengthening shepherding care to provide more consistent care across the congregation, and to equip ourselves to better meet the shepherding needs of women and people in crisis.
  • Finding new and tangible ways to care for all who are unable to regularly participate in church life due to health risks, illness, aging, unconventional schedules, family situations, etc.
