TGC Columbus is a regional chapter of The Gospel Coalition, which is a movement of evangelical pastors, Christian leaders, and churches who delight in the truth and power of the gospel, and who want the gospel of Christ crucified and resurrected to lie at the center of all we cherish, preach, and teach.
How did TGC Columbus begin?
In 2005 a handful of pastors in central Ohio began meeting informally at a local Panera Bread. The purpose of these monthly gatherings was simply to spend time together in fellowship and share ministry blessings and burdens. Over time the conversation became more intentional. The attendees felt a growing responsibility to reach out to other likeminded ministries and make a difference for God’s Kingdom in the greater Columbus area.
What does TGC Columbus believe and value?
In 2006 and 2007, two significant conferences were begun at a national level—Together for the Gospel (T4G) and The Gospel Coalition (TGC)—both of which produced foundational theological statements. Our small local group found in these statements a commonality of theology and philosophy of ministry. Locally, we decided to use these documents to publicly articulate our central theological and ministerial convictions.
The mission of the TGC Columbus is to treasure the glorious Person and Work of the Triune God and to see God glorified by the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ through the Spirit in the greater Columbus area.
