Vision & Mission

Stronger and Better Together: Joining Jesus in the Restoration of the World

The Southern Ohio Synod consists of congregations, individuals, clusters, conferences, organizations and synod staff members who 'walk together in the way' of Jesus Christ to work toward God's purpose of restoring the world. We believe that together as a synod, we are able to accomplish things that we cannot do on our own. Indeed, the English word, 'synod,' is derived from two Greek words that denote the power of working together for a common purpose (syn - 'together' + hodos - 'way' = synodos).

We are stronger and better together! Please explore the rest of our website to find ways that we are joining Jesus in the restoration of the world.
