About NWO


The primary objective of NWO is to populate northwestern Ohio with dynamic Wesleyan- Holiness churches. 


We are “optimists of grace” realizing it is by God’s initiative that we come to know Him, are offered salvation through Jesus Christ, and are being made like Jesus by the work of the Holy Spirit.  We seek as followers of Christ to “love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.”


Presently we have sixty congregations in our twenty-two counties, and are actively seeking to start new churches.  NWO is a “connected” district.  Because of  the relatively small geographical footprint of our district, and our sense that “We are better together” there are many opportunities for fellowship, worship, evangelism,  and training.  Our district offices are located on the grounds of the Lighthouse Camp and Retreat Center in St. Marys.
