We feel led to seek a space that is west of 315, inside 270, and south of 161. However, that area is also among the hardest areas in the city to find and purchase real estate! We are looking for a space that is about 15,000 square feet; we won’t be able to buy land and build, or find a space and then start the process of raising the finances. When something becomes available, we will have to be able to jump on it immediately! This is a huge step of faith, but it is one the the elders and members have affirmed, and we believe that God is leading us in this. We know this will require all the faith our prayers can afford. It’s a part of Veritas’s DNA to plan church communities in areas that are most in need of Jesus, including areas that involve risk.
Mill Run Area
Another area that could be a potential blessing is the Mill Run area. We see how accessible it is for so many neighborhoods and yet at the same time it’s close and easily a short drive for the majority of members we’ve already been pursuing.
Henderson Rd/Bethel Rd/Reed Rd
Reed Rd connects Upper Arlington all the way to Columbus, Worthington, and Dublin. This is an area of our city that we’d love to see a gospel-centered church engaging the community and proclaiming Jesus, to see areas that have been traditionally broken and divided reconciled in Christ. We’d love to see God provide a space there.
