Our Story


Our Story


In 2007, Pastor Justin and Jenni Wiegand felt called to start a church in rural Ohio, where they both grew up. Pastor Keith and Jenny Peterson followed the calling as well. They left their home in Kentucky and moved with their two sons to help Pastor Justin and Jenni start the church. In 2007, they launched the church in Lewisburg with only a few additional families. Community of Faith has since grown to serve nearly a thousand people on a weekly basis.

Pastor Jeff and Elizabeth Travis joined the team in 2014 and are the pastors of the second campus in Eaton.  Community of Faith is now a multi-site church, holding seven services throughout the week and continuously pursuing the mission God laid on Pastor Justin’s heart many years ago -- to launch life-giving churches in rural communities. In the fall of 2017, Community of Faith launched a third campus in Arcanum.
