our Story

In June 2005, Eastside Vineyard Church in Pickerington, OH sent Brian Burd and his family, along with approximately 55 other people to plant a church in Pataskala. We held our first service at Watkins Memorial High School on June 5th of 2005. After four years of meeting in the high school and later sharing a building with another church, we moved into our own permanent facility at 9286 York Rd SW in April 2009.  In April of 2021, Vineyard Christian Church became Living Hope Church.

We offer programs for students thru 12th grade. In addition to our Sunday worship service, we meet in small groups (we call them Connect Groups) in various locations around the area throughout the week. Our worship is contemporary, the messages are practical and encouraging, and dress is casual.

From the beginning we have been focused on connecting people with God and each other. We believe that Jesus is the answer to the problems of mankind and that we serve Him best when we serve Him together. It is with great excitement that we commit to carrying out this purpose and serving Pataskala and the surrounding communities. Our story is just getting started. . . it is with great expectation that we look forward to God's writing of our story! And we invite you to become a part of the story that is being written.
