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.
Cincinnati Community Church, Grandview Christian Assembly, and Oasis Christian Community occasionally get together for retreats and events. Keith Miller has been a missionary to Uganda, Africa, where he planted a church as well as conducted ministry training for university graduates and pastors. Today Keith brings his leadership abilities and experience to bear in leading Cincinnati Community Church. Parallel to his ministry of teaching and leadership, he also works as a Nurse Practitioner.
