Welcome Jim Garrett
By OCF NewsDecember 15, 2017
We are excited to announce that Dr. Jim Garrett has joined the OCF Staff as our Associate Pastor!
Dr. Jim and Cheri Garrett hail from South Carolina where they both came to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ at an early age. Although they both were reared in dysfunctional homes where their dads were alcoholics, their comprehension of God's love came through very tangible means: Cheri through the love of a bus ministry from a local church and Jim through the loving persistence of a local pastor.
They each have over 40 years of marriage and of ministry experience as pastor, missionaries, youth and children's leaders, and various other administrative ministry functions.
They are the parents of three adult children, all living with their respective spouses here in Ohio, and all active in various phases of ministry. They are also Papa and Mimi to 15 wonderful grandchildren ranging in ages from 2 to 17.
A big welcome to them as Jim begins his new ministry at OCF as Associate Pastor!
