Our Present. Our Past.
YOUR Future…

Church of the Saviour is in a wonderful place in our journey as a church family. Known as a very warm and welcoming church, you will feel like a part of our family when greeted with a friendly smile and handshake as you walk through our door!

Beginning in 1865, and through several evangelical mergers, our church has been a faithful servant of Jesus Christ in our community. In 1968, we became a part of the United Methodist Church, and after several relocations, we built our “forever home” in 2005 on 22 acres of land on the East side of Hoover Reservoir in Westerville on Fancher Road.

As we live out our daily lives together, we continue to grow in our faith and look forward to our future, as we know God has a plan for us and for you!

Our Pastor

Rev. Andrew Burns

Pastor
“But nothing, not even my life, is more important than my completing my mission. This is nothing other than the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus: to testify about the good news of God’s grace.”

Acts 20:24, CEB

Rev. Andrew Burns (Pastor Andy) grew up in a household deeply committed to the United Methodist family. In June 2010, Andy heard his call to ministry and began journeying toward becoming a United Methodist pastor. Andy received his Local Pastor’s License from the West Ohio Conference in the summer of 2014. Previously, Andy has served Alger First United Methodist Church as their pastor and Church of the Messiah as an Associate Pastor.

Andy has a deep passion for proclaiming the good news of God’s grace to all kinds of people however it may best be heard and received. He loves exploring new ways to be church and new ways to do church today, and works to lead the church in those directions

Andy grew up in several locations around Ohio: Lima, Toledo, Hamilton, and Circleville. In May 2015, Andy received his Bachelor of Arts in Music with a focus on trumpet, as well as a minor in Communication Studies from Ohio Northern University. In May 2018, Andy received his Masters of Divinity from the Methodist Theological School in Ohio.

 
Andy met his wife, Lauren at Ohio Northern, where she was studying for a Bachelor of Science in Biology. The two got married in May of 2017. Prior to Westerville/New Albany, they lived in Alger, OH (near Lima). In his free time, Andy enjoys meeting new people, playing and listening to all kinds of music – from symphonies to punk to jazz to death metal to show tunes – as well as reading.
