Agora Christian Fellowship (Columbus, Ohio, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Agora Christian Fellowship in Columbus, Ohio, USA, began in 1994 with two couples. In January 1995, Al and Susan Mondalek opened their home to a small group for worship. Less than a year later, the group sensed an inner call to relocate worship into the center of the city particularly to serve children and youth.

Agora Christian Services offered infant care, pre-school, early learning, and after-school programs for children. It also offered transportation services for families in need and hosted a voluntary service program.

In 2022 the congregation remained part of the Central District Conference and the Ohio Conference of Mennonite Church USA. On 1 March 2023 it finalized its membership with the Evana Network.
