We are the Liuzzo's
So, who are we?
A family that started in 2002 when Brianna and I said I do! We’ve been serving God full- time since the day we married! Youth Pastor, Family Pastor, Executive Pastor… over 20 years of full-time ministry and now we are starting a new journey! We are planting a church… yup, pretty scary stuff but we are not alone. Along with our family we have YOU!
OUR CALL TO PLANT
At the beginning of 2020 I felt God calling me to take a lead pastor position, but at the time I didn't realize that He would be using my family to plant a church. After serving full-time for 20 years, 13 of those years at Fellowship Baptist Church, my family is now ready for this giant step of faith to continue to reach Ohio by planting a church northwest of Columbus in the Dublin area. This desire to plant a church did not come from an idea that I was the most qualified, for a matter of fact, I am terrified! The overwhelming call came from knowing there are over 52,000 people in Dublin, OH with less than 14 Bible-believing churches and this city is located only 45 minutes from the church I have served at for 13 years.
WHY ARE WE PLANTING THIS CHURCH?
We believe that the Biblical method to reach the world starts with the local church. In accordance to Acts 1:8, we will start by reaching our community with the Gospel and expand into regions outside of our church location. Our desire is to cultivate a mission-minded church through local
evangelism, church planting, and foreign missions.
WHAT IS OUR LONGTERM VISION FOR GLOBAL EVANGELISM?
Our vision for the first year is to be engaged in the community through evangelism, community outreach, local official connections and weekly worship services. We believe that the key to a successful church plant comes directly from being community- minded and Biblically driven. Following the first year of the church plant our mission is to plant churches within Ohio and throughout the United States, by developing and training preachers and church leaders within the church.
