Who We Are

We don't care what you wear, what you've done or where
you've been. We're not perfect but purposeful. We need Christ and that conviction leads us closer to Him. We're passionate, real, and serious about getting to know God. Just drop by and experience something unconventional.

RUSH wants to make its impact and watch the wake of the Gospel message bring spiritual awakening. Even though people have every basic need met and some with abundance, if they don't have Jesus they have nothing. It starts with an encounter with God. A REAL EXPERIENCE.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our facility is Industrial and modern in style. It is like going to Chipotle for lunch. We serve hot coffee, hot or cold tea, hot chocolate, juices and other cold drinks. Often we serve home made granola bars. We greet you with a smile and desire that you feel at home. We start with our music team - who has been writing a third of the songs we do. We pray as the spirit leads and bring a Bible centered word - called Life Lessons. It is very important that we are apply what the Word of God is telling us. We want every person equipped and commissioned to do ministry in the church and outside the church. We are involved in community events and support a number of local and foreign missions projects.

What is the community like?
Our community is down to earth that puts family first. Try to find parking when a school event comes up. Canfield holds many event throughout the year to encourage family. Our 4th of July event brings out over 25,000 people to watch a wonderful parade and then gather around activities for all age groups (dunk tank, archery, potato sack races, carnival games, live music, inflatables, and much more). In the center of town (called the Green), there are nights of music, 'Lighting of the Green' for Christmas, Pumpkin Hunts, Easter Egg Hunts, and so much more. 'First Night Canfield' is a event at New Years with events all over the city.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Seriously, many people are searching for truth, the meaning of life, reasons for premature sickness or death, and many more thought provoking issues. Often the world around us leaves us void of answers. Not everyone who attends our church knows what church is all about. The church over the past 2 decades has often missed the mark on being the extension of God's amazing love. We, at rush church, are apologizing for pushing rather than embracing. The world will know us as God's disciples by the way we love. Please come as you are. We are not here to impress you but to embrace you. We are growing together on this journey of life. I know for a fact that this journey with Christ has so much more to offer.

Jim Barton

I was called into full time ministry after a career in electronics. I graduated as an Electronic Engineer in 1983, worked at Hewlett Packard for 12 years, and then went in a new direction. I felt the calling to go into ministry in 1997 and went back to school the same year I got married to my beautiful wife Jill. I started serving as a youth pastor in 2002 and then stepped out to church plant in June 2008. Rush church was birthed and the doors opened in July 2009. I have two wonderful children born in 2001 and 2005. Children have given me a new outlook on my Father's Love.

What Members Say Add your voice

  • I have visited the church for a few weeks and what stands out to me is the freedom to worship in the Spirit. You can sense the Spirit of God as soon as you walk in the doors. I attribute this to the Holy Spirit obviously but, also to the servant-leadership of Pastor Jim and his wife Jill. If you are looking for a church that is welcoming, loving and one where the Word is preached passionately and unapologetically then I couldn’t recommend Rush Church highly enough.
