Medina Presbyterian Church is a congregation of followers of Jesus Christ. We believe he is the hope of the world, and in his name we welcome all those who come seeking him. We believe the purpose of the church in the world is to glorify God by making disciples and meeting human need. We are working to become more faithful disciples ourselves, and we encourage others to join us in that effort. We listen for God’s Word from the pages of scripture, and open ourselves to the transforming power of God’s Holy Spirit.
The Rev. Dr. Henry Pearce, Pastor
