The East Ohio Church Plant Resource Team has formed to support the church planting effort in Strasburg, a town in Tuscarawas County a few miles from Dover.
The resource team has called Jason Rissler to serve as church planter for this new church. Jason and his wife, Heather, and their boys, Evan, Derek and Brennan, have moved to Strasburg. A commissioning service for Jason was held Aug. 28, 2011, at LifeBridge Community Church in Dover.
Eleven Ohio Conference congregations have pledged their support, both prayer and financial support, for the church planting effort in Strasburg. Supporting congregations include the following:
The Ohio Conference is also supporting this church plant financially, providing $10,000.
