The Church Next Door started in 1955 by a small group of people with a common vision to start a church for young families. Over the years, the church has grown and reached many believers, families, and young adults across central Ohio. Within this growth one thing that has remained constant – a desire to experience God more fully in our lives; the belief that a relationship with Jesus Christ is transforming; a commitment to children and young people; and a desire to be a valuable participant in our community.
We offer multiple worship services every weekend, with many opportunities for everyone to be involved in the ministry. Come experience a modern, upbeat, and energetic worship service, along with messages every week to help you learn more about God and press into your faith. Our mission is simply to move people closer to God.
Doyle has served as Lead Pastor of The Church Next Door since 1998. He holds a Masters of Divinity Degree from Gordon-Conwell. Pastor Jackson moved to Ohio in 1992 to serve as a youth pastor in Cincinnati, Ohio. Doyle has since been an active member of the community, and has been instrumental in his leadership and guidance for the church.
Doyle and his wife Jennifer are passionate in teaching others the love and message of Jesus, and ministering to the families and young adults they encounter. Doyle has ministered to multiple churches and groups across the nation and the world, in areas like Tennessee, Africa, and within Israel, pushing to move people to God both within those nations and within his home church.
