Missio Dei Central is the second church planted by Pastor Kurt Hannah and the first one planted in Cincinnati. From the beginning, it’s been our mission and vision to see localized, inter-dependent congregations take root in every region of the city in order to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Central church exists to serve people inside the highway 275 loop by establishing and multiplying Gospel-Centered, City-Focused Church Communities.
We gather at 9a & 11a on Sundays at Essex studios, and throughout the week in communities all over the city.
Very simply, worship is focusing your attention and affections on something. Gatherings at Missio are full of us focusing our attention and affections on God. We do this in a few different ways. Music and corporate readings facilitate a portion of the gathering, but we also worship through studying God’s word and praying together.
We don't take the vision of being Gospel Centered lightly. Expect to hear passionate, biblical preaching on the weekend where we'll read through a section of text together before one of our pastors or church members breaks it down and helps us apply it practically.
You can listen to some of our teaching by visiting our sermons page.
We believe that whenever the Gospel is proclaimed, it evokes a response in those witnessing it. At Missio, we usually respond to Gospel proclamation with song, communion, prayer, and giving.
You can hear some of our original music or check out the songs we’re singing in gatherings on our music page.
Do you have questions or are you interested in meeting someone from Missio before attending a gathering? Email us at Life@missiodei.org and we’ll get something figured out. :)
We were made for community. No one exists to do life on their own. We need spaces made up of people from all generations of life, to share stories, eat meals, pray, and study God’s Word. We need a space where we work to consider each other over ourselves. No community is perfect, and no two communities are exactly the same; we don’t expect them to be, because people are messy and so is our pursuit of Jesus.
Each Sunday, your child will learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. The lessons are fun and approachable and taught by committed volunteers and staff who serve Jesus by serving you and your kids. We also seek to help equip parents to train their children in the gospel through resources like family guides for our lessons, weekly activities, and resources for home. Ultimately, the goal of Missio Kids is to get kids excited about Jesus and to get families talking about Jesus together throughout the week.
Three values we are built on.
Gospel • Teaching God's word in ways I can understand.
Family • Equipping families to continue the story at home.
Friends • Expressing the love of Jesus to those around me.
