OUR STORY

2 Churches | 1 Vision

The idea for Mosaic Church began about a year and a half ago as Pastor Wayne Botkin and Pastor Roz Picardo, were driving in the car. They had just attended a church planting meeting at the Vineyard in Columbus. They began to ask the question, “Why is it that when a church is planted only one planter is sent?” The biblical model Jesus instituted in the New Testament demonstrates this work being done in teams; Jesus sent out his disciples two by two. Then they said to each other, "What if we planted a church together?

Wayne and Roz didn’t give the idea much credence initially, since they were each part of two different churches. Wayne being the Pastor of the South Campus of Christ Church and Roz, the Executive Pastor of New Church Development at Ginghamsburg, Yet neither of them could shake the conversation. They started to realize a God-dream was being birthed in their hearts: two pastors coming together to plant a shared church. The next thought was that there was no way their two churches would agree to partner; it’s just not typically done by two different churches. After more thought and prayer, Wayne & Roz decided to approach their lead pastors and others. Surprisingly, all parties were intrigued and supportive. After much prayer, meetings and deliberation, this God-dream is about to come to fruition. Mosaic Church will be launched as new faith community in the fall of 2017 at the Rave Cinemas at the Greene.

A mosaic can be defined as a combination of diverse elements forming a more or less coherent whole. Beauty, color, intricate patterns. all these are elements of a mosaic. As you take a closer look you’ll see a mosaic is made up of many small pieces, many broken or chipped. Each piece with it’s own attributes but yet as whole a beautiful creation. This paints a picture that helps to describe the church as a whole, many individual broken pieces brought together by an Artist who will take each piece and fit them together to create a masterpiece.

We’re off to a great start ! God has continued to confirm His vision and plan as He weaves together the stories of those who have become part of the Mosaic Church staff and launch team. Although our services don’t start until the fall, we’re jumping right in and serving the community of Beavercreek, participating in Kite Day, buying coffee for customers at Winans and this summer we’ll be a part of the Greene’s Summer Concert Series. Serving and love, that’s what Mosaic Church wants to be known for.

LOVE EACH OTHER

We can't experience God's love to its fullness until we love others.  We live this by being fully present, listening deeply, and helping each other grow to be more like Jesus each day.

Our Beliefs

God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God's redeeming love. 

The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work.
