Who is starting this new church?
Larry and Mary Noel are the lead pastors. But they are recruiting a launch team who will staff the ministries and be in charge of activities. Larry has been in full-time ministry in several churches as an associate pastor, executive pastor, worship pastor, youth pastor, and children's pastor. Mary is the office manager for S.D. Myers in Tallmadge, and has also served in ladies ministries and held Bible studies at home and work. They love hiking, going to sporting events, concerts, playing table games, and hangin' with the family.
Why start a new church in Kent?
Our purpose is to reach out to the students of Kent State University and families in the Kent area who have not found a place to belong. We will provide a community of believers designed to meet their spiritual and individual needs.
Our vision is to prepare people to reach the KSU campus and touch the Kent area and beyond.
