On January 7, 1995, then, Elder Ronald Hoard and his wife, Elect Lady Henrietta Hoard, came to Columbus, Ohio with a vision - not to establish just "another" church, but to establish the commandments of God through the life and walk of Jesus Christ. Thus, Ephphatha New Ministries was formed. Now after implementing the works of Jesus Christ and his Apostles through benevolence, charity, and true servitude, we are actively The Ephphatha Outreach Ministries.

Mark 7:34 says, "He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, "Ephphatha!" (which means, "Be opened!" ).

The Pastor and his congregation would like to invite you to "Be Open" - open to learning, open to receiving the Word through the Spirit of Truth, and open to going higher in the Lord, through worship and praise.
