Frequently Asked Questions

Where is WHC?

Since 1987, WHC has met at 4595 Gender Road on the East side of Columbus, about five miles south of the Brice Road exit off Interstate 70 and roughly three miles north of U.S. Route 33.

When are services held?

WHC holds three regular weekly services: 10 a.m. Sundays, and 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

A Sunday-evening service is also scheduled monthly; check our home page for information about the next scheduled services. Sunday-evening services start at 7 p.m.

Pastor Parsley is involved in a lot of stuff. How involved in this church is he, really?

Pastor Parsley has often said that if never had the opportunity to be host a television show, preach in churches and other venues across America, do humanitarian work around the world or influence moral values in the public square, he’d still be a pastor. WHC is not only the flagship outreach of the ministry he’s built for more than 30 years, but also the place where his skills and his passions are most fully realized. He is involved in every aspect of the church’s operations, and there is no reason to expect that will change anytime soon.

What do you have for kids?

Our intent is to have the most family-friendly church in Columbus, both so young children can experience God in a way that makes sense for them and so their parents can worship Him without distraction or concern for their kids’ safety. We offer a nursery (birth-age 3), preschool (age 3-kindergarten) and junior church (grades 1-5) for every service. Our trained teachers are dedicated both to your children’s safety and to ministering the Gospel to them.

Our opportunities for children and youth also include Royal Rangers and MPact Girls, Christian organizations similar to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts respectively, which meet at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

What do you have for teens?

Our Next Harvest Youth program meets on Wednesday nights on the campus of Valor Christian College, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in relevant ways with area teens. Monthly events at other times of the week, called Next Harvest Branches, are held as well. Click here for more information.

How do I become a member?

It’s pretty easy – if you want to be a member of WHC, you can be! One-hour membership classes are held monthly before Sunday-morning services. The classes help you understand more about our vision and how you can be part of it. Click here for more information.

Do you have Bible studies or other small groups?

Life Groups are in-home gatherings of eight to 20 people who meet on a regular basis for fellowship, Bible study and prayer, separately from the weekly worship service. New Life Groups exist throughout greater Columbus; each is led by one or more mature Christian leaders who will accept you as you are, strengthen your faith and encourage you during life’s difficult times. A Life Group is a connection to a growing church and an awesome God. To find or form a home group in your neighborhood, click here.

How else can I get involved in the ministry?

WHC is the flagship outreach of Pastor Rod Parsley, one of America’s foremost Christian leaders. Joining this congregation makes you a part of a ministry with a 30-year track record, including a television program broadcast worldwide, a K-12 school, a Christian college and a pro-life medical clinic for women. Your opportunities to serve the Kingdom of God here are limited only by your energy level and your willingness to serve. Click here for more information.
