Our Story

Donnie and Charity Ryan had a vision to plant a church in Johnstown for over 10 years before the door opened in the summer of 2014. Beginning with a bible study in one of our founding members' home, crossroads came to fruition under their leadership in early 2015.


Donnie is a registered nurse and the vice president of a national case management and consulting company. He received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio and a Master of Science degree from Western Governor's University in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is also an ordained minister with the United Pentecostal Church. Charity was an early childhood education major at Central Ohio Technical College. They have three children, Rebecca, Michael, and Gabrielle.


Their goal is to reach people far from God and lead them in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
