Central Southeast Ohio Association welcomes Rev. Jim Nolan as our new Administrative Minister

Please welcome the Central Southeast Ohio Association’s new Administrative Minister, Rev. James Nolan! The Personnel Committee and the Association Council are excited about the gifts and energy Jim brings to this position.

A native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, he is happily married to his high school sweetheart, Cami. Between them they have seven children and 18 grandchildren. Jim is a graduate of Indiana University (and still a diehard Hoosier basketball fan) with a bachelor’s in journalism, an MBA from Colorado State and a master of divinity from Lancaster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania.

He spent nearly four decades as an award-winning journalist/editor and publishing executive at big city newspapers (Miami, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver) before trading in pen for pulpit as a United Church of Christ pastor. Before relocating back to Columbus, Jim served churches in Fairview Heights, IL and Wadsworth, OH. Between his experience in business, his love of the church and his eagerness to take on new challenges Jim has much to offer the Association. We are grateful his journey has led him here.

Jim started with us on July 16th. During the week, Jim will be available Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. He may be reached by email at jimn@ocucc.org., through the main Association number, 614-885-0722, ext 212 or on his cell, 614-716-8519. After he settles into his new duties, Jim plans to be available for guest preaching requests.

From the Association Pastor:

May you experience and share God’s Love in new and deeper ways ……………………
Do you ever sing to God and imagine Him singing to you???

No matter what is going on in your life today, take the time to sing to our Lord and bless His name.

More Than Anything
(Song by Lamar Campbell)

I lift my hands in total adoration unto You
You reign on the throne
For You are God and God alone
Because of You my cloudy days are gone
I can sing to You this song
I just want to say that I love You more than anything…

I love You Jesus
I worship and adore You
Just want to tell You
Lord, I love You more than anything

Seeing God in Everything…Sing His praises,

Rev. Patricia E. H. Battle
Servant of God

Imagining a Different Conference

You are invited to help the Conference Vision Team! Recently, a team of 15 representatives from Associations and Conference forwarded a report to the Board of Directors. That report imagined different ways to shape the Ohio Conference and its Associations.

The Vision Team declared to the Board of Directors that we need to become “one nimble and responsible judicatory that is faithful in mission and responsible in stewardship.” The Board agreed. And that’s where you come in.
