Mike Gauch, Senior Pastor
As son of founding Pastor Dick Gauch and his wife Sue, Pastor Mike has been intricately involved in Christian Fellowship Church since the beginning. He officially came on board as Assistant Pastor in 1994 and now serves as Senior Pastor. He was raised in the Columbus area, graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Marketing, and has a Master’s of Divinity degree from Grace Theological Seminary.
For a number of years Mike held various marketing positions in Sales Promotion and Employee Placement Services before heeding God’s call into Pastoral Ministry. His heartbeat in ministry is to encourage people to have encounters with Christ, based in Truth that are both personal and practical. He desires each week, from his personal study of the Word, to bring forth messages that speak into real life, from a real life. He sees himself as a “fellow traveler” with God’s flock, seeking to pursue God’s heart and inviting us to come along.
Pastor Mike is a committed family man who loves his wife, Marcy and very proud of his 3 sons, David, Mason and J.B.
