“Making waves sounds like being disruptive or causing trouble. In this instance, we are making waves to do something that lasts... to make an eternal difference in someone’s life!”
Lead Pastor Jason Rehmel
As we move into 2018 and beyond, we want to measure growth for our church in one way, answering one question: How many people are we introducing to Jesus and a life being lived for God? Funds for Our Church Family represents our normal operating budget for 2018 and 2019.
God is calling Eastside to big things on the east side of Cincinnati… one thing that has hampered us over the last decade is the restrictive debt the church incurred in the early 2000s. We have made great strides in debt repayment over the last seven years and it’s time to make even greater progress toward being debt free as a church so that we can refocus more resources in the community where God has us!

Through partnerships with Christ-centered organizations we can make an even bigger impact in the world! Through Milford Miami Ministry we will help the poorest families - primarily single parents with children - located in the immediate vicinity of our church campus; through Christian Villages Benevolence Fund we will help provide funds to older adults who have exhausted their personal financial resources and need a helping hand to cover basic care and housing. Finally, we will help establish an orphanage along side Psalm 823 in Liberia, Africa. This is our response to James 1:27: “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction…” Yes, it is - and it’s time for us to jump in and make some waves!
