Worship Pastor

Living Hope Church is an Evangelical Free Church located in Findlay, OH, only a little over an hour from several major cities like Columbus, Dayton and Toledo. The church is led by Senior Pastor Blair Hayward, who has been the senior pastor at the church for 12 years. Attendance currently runs around 500 in person each week with about 100 viewing online. Currently, the church offers two identical services at 9:15am and 10:45am on Sunday mornings with a more contemporary bent. The church is widely multi-generational in their demographics with a mission to reach their community of over 40,000 people made up of college students, young professionals, and families.

The church has a huge heart for helping people experience a deep relationship with Jesus through discipleship and equipping people for evangelism. Since a new refresh of their mission, vision, and even their name a few years ago, the church has planted a self-sustaining sister church on the other side of town with plans to continue to plant a family network of churches.
