Open hearts.  Progressive minds.  Listening to the voices of faith and reason.

St. Stephen’s is a community of 150 individuals that worships at the corner of Woodruff and High adjacent to the campus of The Ohio State University. The community gathers individuals from the OSU campus and the wider metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio, to grow in faith through worship and prayer, nurturing minds, and community service. We are multigenerational singles and couples with and without children who work to meet each other in unvarnished authenticity. All are invited to come explore faith with us in an atmosphere that strives to be open, inclusive, and challenging. For us this means an open table, our practice of inviting all to share in the meal of bread and wine . . . but it also represents a broader vision of openness and inclusivity. Everyone is invited to participate fully in the life of the parish, in any way he or she feels called.
