Organization Description

Fellowship City Church is a non-denominational church on the East Side of Cleveland, Ohio, that began in 1976 with a desire to see people engage in dynamic worship, biblical teaching, and small groups so that the people of God may be equipped to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Throughout the years much has changed, but these core elements from our founding families have remained the same.

The church is under the guidance of a unique team leadership model: our Executive Team of pastors lead together and have found that there is power in teaming together to help people experience true significance in Christ. Fellowship is alive and growing: with three campuses, each week new families visit and decisions are made for Christ.
