Mission and Vision Statement

God calls us through the Holy Spirit to connect with each other to plant, grow, and nurture vital, faithful communities of Christ for service and ministry. In response, we build partnerships, communicate with and support congregations, leaders, and individuals, and embody Christ's transforming love in the world.

Galloway Church

The Galloway church was organized in the late 1800's from members of a United Brethren congregation and a Methodist congregation, who voted to join together and become Presbyterians. The church continues its faithful mission and ministry today in a lovely church building in a relocated site. Galloway Church is a friendly, family church and is always ready for company! Sunday worship begins at10:45 am. The Reverend Thom Shuman recently joined the Galloway Church family as the Transitional Pastor. Pastor Thom comes to Scioto Valley from a church in the Presbytery of Cincinnati.
