Quest is committed to living life as friends with faith. Another way we say it is relationships are the mission. What that means is:

• We want everyone to have a vibrant, active relationship with God through understanding the gospel and how the Spirit of God leads them and interacts with them.

• We believe a vibrant faith and life is only possible when we do it with friends with whom we can be honest and open and serve together with them in God’s mission in all facets of our life.

• Finally, our posture with those who don’t believe or who are even against Christianity is one of finding ways to build winsome friendships that allow honest interaction about faith.

The worship team currently has around 35 volunteers, a stipended intern and stipended vocal coach. A number of the musicians work part-time or full-time as professional musicians. There are three volunteers and the worship intern whom we are currently developing as worship leaders to deepen our bench of leadership and multiply leaders to send out. We also have an experienced youth band and a newly developing second youth worship band. The team has one sound professional who works as a repairman as well as helps run sound for many of the large concerts in Central Ohio. We also have three other capable sound people.

Quest is a growing church of over 600 people calling Quest home with 300 average attendance per week in two services. Over 60% of our 450 volunteer age people are involved in volunteering. Our two fastest growing populations are 20 and 30 something young couples without children or just starting to have children, closely followed by empty nester’s 50 and above. The church has shown slow, steady growth for 3 years in a row. The 2015 year-end numbers indicate growth is likely accelerating. There is strong unity around vision, over 60% of the people volunteer regularly and we are experiencing significant progress in the people learning to engage with the Holy Spirit.

Quest serves Northeast greater Columbus with the church sitting at the corner of New Albany, Westerville, Columbus and Big Walnut School Districts. Quest draws about 50% from New Albany, 30% from Westerville and about 20% from other areas nearby. The area we draw from is a mix of highly wealthy, upper middle and middle class as well as nearby areas in which poverty and families at risk are on the rise. Major companies in our immediate area are: Limited Brands, Abercrombie and Fitch, Chase Bank Headquarters, Worthington Industries, Discover Card Center, Nationwide Insurance, Bob Evan’s Corporate offices and other regional, national and international businesses and startups.

While Quest reaches families from several nearby school districts, the majority of our children come from New Albany and Westerville, which are perennially two of the best school districts in Ohio. New Albany is regularly recognized as a top performing school nationally, producing an above average number of National Merit Scholars and successful elite college applicants. In 2015 New Albany was voted the number 1 best small suburb in which to live in the United States. Nearby surrounding areas also made the top 50 list of 2015 best small suburbs in the United States.
