LeaveAMark Church

Children's Director

Columbus, Ohio




Denomination: Non-Denominational

Weekly Attendance: 800

Location: Columbus, Ohio

The Role: Children's Director


About the Organization:

LeaveAMark Church was started 14 years ago with 12 people in the living room of Lead Pastor, Steve Combs. Over the next several years, LeaveAMark operated as a mobile church meeting in several different locations. We moved into our own building in 2016 and, because of steady growth in our church, we are getting ready to break ground on a new 800 seat worship center, allowing us to convert our existing building into a state of the art Family Ministry Building. LeaveAMark is blessed with a beautiful 40-acre campus on the south side of Columbus. From day one, LeaveAMark has been an outwardly focused church where “no perfect people are allowed.” We are passionate about making LeaveAMark a place for people who feel like they have no place in the church, and we are seeing God fulfill that in some really cool ways. We saw over 400 people place their faith in Christ at LeaveAMark in 2020, and we have first time guests coming every weekend from all walks of life and from all over the Columbus area. God is using LeaveAMark to bring the hope of Christ to so many people, and we believe the best is yet to come!
