Catalyst For Columbus is excited to support a church plant


Garden City Church


To be an Apostolic hub (micro-city), awakening and equipping the Bride of Christ to bring transformation in the city of Columbus by advancing the Kingdom of God, starting on the westside of Columbus!

Garden City Church


Garden City Church exists to pursue communion with Jesus, to hosting His presence, to doing life together in community as brothers and sisters in Christ, and to use our influence to cultivate our city for the advancement of God's Kingdom as we look forward to the return of Jesus our King.   

Lauren and Gerald have set out to plant a new ministry on the westside of Columbus, Garden City Church ( and the Eden Center. The Eden Center will house both faith based non-profits meeting practical needs of the community and faith based social enterprises geared towards community development. Their passion is to help others discover their identity, purpose and destiny. They want to see Columbus thrive and the people of this city flourish as they encounter the gospel of the Kingdom!

Gerald and Lauren have been married for 11 years. They have four beautiful children, Rilynn, Adilynn, Nehemiah and Taelynn and they live in Columbus, OH.
