To know and exalt Christ as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King; and to complete His great commission.
Brian “Yogi” Durbin
Our district family is acutely feeling the loss of Brian “Yogi” Durbin. Not only did Yogi sit on the The Ohio Valley District Executive Committee as a Board member, Yogi provided pivotal leadership in our family of churches. His ministry was centered on investing into every relationship God placed in his life. Yogi introduced many to Jesus by emulating Jesus’ character and love. People felt valued when they were around him. We all have cherished memories that will last. We look forward to seeing Yogi again.
God primarily accomplishes His mission though the multiplying Church, therefore our district’s mission is to:
- develop leaders
- support and inspire district churches
- plant new churches in the growing, the underserved, and the receptive communities of Western Ohio and Kentucky.
We long that every Ohio Valley church, by the power of the Holy Spirit, is driven by the Christ-centered Acts 1:8 mission until every man, woman, and child in our region has repeated opportunity to hear and respond to a clear explanation of the Gospel, to be baptized, discipled and sent on mission until the Great Commission is complete.
