Andrew Scholz is the founding and lead pastor of City North Church. After five and a half years as a youth pastor serving in two churches, Andrew experienced an emotional and difficult departure from a church he loved. In the coming months he took some time away from full-time ministry to heal and seek God. In time, as his heart healed God planted a dream he did not expect deep in his soul. It was a dream to come home to north-eastern Columbus and plant a brand new, life-giving church for people just like him; people who had been hurt and broken by the church.
He and his family began praying and preparing, an in March 2016 moved home to pursue the dream full-time. Andrew is passionate about reaching people who have been hurt by and given up on the church.
