WE ARE GHMC

A welcoming community walking with God to create a more peaceful and just world by cultivating curiosity, creativity and compassion.

"The poet Donald Hall referred to a church he attended in New Hampshire as a 'little hive of goodness.' When I read that several years ago, I immediately thought of Glennon Heights. No congregation of humans is perfect, but much of the activity at Glennon Heights is directed towards the good – encouraging people to recognize and respond to the needs of others and revel in the wonder of creation. Glennon Heights resonates with my family, school, and work lives and provides a spiritual home for reflection and growth."

Our Mission

  • A welcoming community walking with God to create a more peaceful and just world by cultivating curiosity, creativity & compassion.

Our Vision

  • Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we envision growth, building a community of faith which practices constructive responses to conflict; and, in a world driven by fear, promoting a Christian voice of love and nonviolence.

Anger is an important component of our faith. In this sermon, we wrestle with the traumatic history of residential and boarding schools which tried to erase indigenous cultures and Mennonite involvement in this injustice.

Ryan is passionate about social justice, peacemaking, community development, the larger Mennonite church, and finding ways of spreading Jesus' message of reconciliation to the larger faith community.


Ryan is an avid tea drinker; he loves playing games and he is overly invested in most Ohio sports teams, particularly the Browns and the Guardians.

"I love Glennon Heights because it offers me a second family, a safe space where I am loved and cared for. Glennon Heights is the right decision for me, though, because it's a place that also pushes me to grow into my own faith. At church, I've learned to love and care for my church family in return as well as other people around me."

I love the community and service aspects of Glennon Heights. The church is quick to make newcomers feel truly welcome. Through weekly activities, as well as organizations that we support, I see the commitment of the congregation to caring for each other, our local community, and the broader world.
