District Summit Speakers

Dr. Greg Ford

Dr. Greg Ford

Pastor of One Church

Dr. Greg Ford  moved to Columbus, Ohio, with his wife Shaylyn, in March 2010, with a vision to ignite a movement of Christ-centered, multiplying churches. The first step was to start One Church. They began by working in the community, building relationships, and hosting meetings in their apartment. One by one, people began to see the vision and join the movement.  Soon a team was built and word began to spread. On 
January 23, 2011, One Church hosted its first official service. 

Since then, the church has continued to expand. In 2016, One Church purchased the property at 817 North Hamilton Road in Gahanna. This facility is now home to a church that is reaching, connecting, growing, supporting, and empowering person after person. As the numbers grow, so do the stories. Lives are being transformed through the power of Jesus. 

The Fords are a family of five. With Greg and Shaylyn are Ella, Hudson, and Miles. They claim that their family is complete, but who knowswith God all things are possible.
