Welcome to Journey at Christ Church. I have been pastor here for 12 years and my heart is to make_space in the Church for all who are seeking a connection with Jesus. If that’s you, then you’re welcome regardless of where you’re coming from and no matter your background, and I can’t wait to meet you. I’d love to have coffee with you and hear your story—my treat. I enjoy family time, nerding out with books, going to the gym, walking in the woods, and cheering for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
ERIN MITCHELL 9:00 Worship Leader
I’m proud to have been a part of this church family since 1997. I live in Findlay with my husband Mike, our dog Dante, and a fish tank full of African cichlids. I have 2 adult stepchildren, Colin and Paige. I am a counselor with Lutheran Social Services in my “day job.” In my free time, I enjoy reading, working out, doing assorted craft projects and gardening. I’m also a major football fan (go Packers!). My approach to both counseling and my role with the church is to meet people wherever they are, and my hope for everyone who finds their way to us is that they find that place where they belong, just as they are.
TYLER TALBERT 11:00 Worship Leader
Hi! I'm Tyler, I've been married to my wife, Megan, since 2016. Together we have two lovely cats, Nova and Freya, and a horse, Lenny. I've been in Findlay since 2011 when I started at the University of Findlay studying Religious Studies and Philosophy. In my free time, I enjoy craft beer, making music, reading, gardening, and talking philosophy.
TAMMY MARTIN Children’s Ministry Director
I was born and raised here in Findlay. After graduating from college, I spent 13 years in northwestern Minnesota where I met my husband on a blind date. Prior to moving back to Ohio in 2011, and joining the staff at Journey, I served as a Youth Ministry Director and Second Grade Teacher. Our home is full of fur babies who love chasing squirrels, as well as lots of fishing equipment that’s caught up to an 85 lb. sturgeon. If you turn on our TV it’s likely to be on a sports channel or HGTV. Journey is a place where you can come as you are. I’m blessed to be chosen and used by God to create opportunities for our children and youth to grow closer to Jesus.
NATHAN BIGGER Office Administrator
I am originally from Missouri but have lived in nearly every corner of Ohio for the past 20+ years. My wonderful wife Krista and I met at Ohio University and our love for all things Bobcat knows no bounds. We are blessed with two sweet, smart, and exhausting boys— JJ and Andrew, and our giant fur baby, Danny Tanner. Krista is a Findlay native and music teacher at Findlay High School. My background is in theater performance, arts administration, and bad puns. I have served as the church office administrator since 2018, and am proud to be a small part of such a welcoming church family. Come say hi!
