Who We Are
NEO Church is a non-denominational, contemporary church with a passion to "go and make disciples." (Matt 28:19) Since its beginning, NEO Church has been most passionate about one thing; the unapologetic proclamation of Jesus Christ through the Bible. It is our desire to see Christ change the hearts and lives of NE Ohio through the truth of His word.
It all began in a barn. Not a manger barn...we were not trying to recreate Christmas...just a barn. It turned out God had put a vision in the heart of Pastor Dan Burgoyne to plant a church seeking to reach every generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ. With the help of a small team NEOchurch opened its doors Nov. 7, 2007 in the form of a Bible study on Wednesday evenings. Soon, the barn became filled and the need for a new location became evident. Given the desire of NEOchurch to reach all of NE Ohio, a central location to both the city and suburbs became an important priority. On July 6, 2008 that prayer became a reality as the first Sunday morning service was held at the Independence Middle School located near the two main highways connecting both the east and west sides. Today, we are witnessing a growing, thriving community of people who hail from around the city. We are excited for what God has already done and we are in eager anticipation for what He is about to do! What God says in Ephesians 3:20 is true. "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to his power at work within us. To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever Amen."
