Lower Lights Christian Health Center

Take time to lift up the ministry at Lower Lights today! They were recently featured in this article by Nazarene Compassionate Ministries! Fun Fact: Our previous Children’s Pastor, Leah Bowman, now serves with this awesome ministry.

In the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, in the United States, 55 percent of people live below the poverty line (which in the U.S. is defined as a yearly income of $26,200 for a family of 4), and almost 1 in 4 adults are unemployed. Compared to other areas in the state, Franklinton residents have the lowest life expectancy, a sign of the socioeconomic inequities and barriers to health care access that are a constant challenge for people living in poverty.

To remove those barriers, Lower Lights Christian Health Center (LLCHC), serves the people of Franklinton and five other neighborhoods in Columbus with high quality medical, vision, dental, behavioral health, and nutrition care, regardless of the ability to pay and with or without insurance. LLCHC is a Nazarene compassionate ministry center, and therefore provides care for both the body and spirit.
