Grandview Christian Assembly was planted in January 2009 in the Upper Arlington area largely by a group of Oasis staff and alumni. It then moved to Grandview in July of 2010. It is a non-denominational church that reaches out to graduate & professional students as well as those settling into adult life. Situated only fifteen minutes from OSU's campus provides Oasis the opportunity to join with GCA for some small groups, men's ministry, and other events. Oasis also joins GCA about once a quarter for a corporate Sunday meeting. Contact Jeff Friess for more information.
Grace Covenant Church, Grandview Christian Assembly, and Oasis Christian Community occasionally get together to put on events like the Ascent Conference and to assist in overseas missions, particularly the starting of new churches in Uganda, Africa. Grace Covenant was formed when Impact Church and Cincinnati Community Church merged to create a greater impact in their community with the gospel.
Grace Bible Church is a new church plant (started April 2013) in Uganda, Africa that is being assisted by Oasis, GCA, and GCC. We are helping to train the church leaders and assisting in humanitarian aid.
