Our pastor

Andrew Scholz is the founding and Lead Pastor of City North Church. He and his wife Vanessa, with their two kids moved home to Columbus in 2016 to pursue their dream to plant a new, life-giving church in northeastern Columbus. After their first year in Westerville God began to pull Andrew back to his hometown of Sunbury, and his alma mater, Big Walnut High School. He is passionate about seeing the halls he walked a teenager used to make the name of Jesus famous.

Andrew has a passion for seeing people who have been hurt and broken by a church find healing and see the gift of life a great local church can be. He walked that journey himself and often uses his story of brokenness at the hands of a church to help people find hope in their own journey. He is a gifted communicator who is able to take Biblical truth and principles and make them applicable in everyday life. More than anything else he believes the local church is the hope of the world, and that nothing can stand in the way of a group of people passionately united around a common mission to make the name of Jesus famous in their city.
