About Us


In The Beginning

The Ridge began during the summer of 2009 when the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church appointed Rev. Jimmy McIlrath and his family to start a new church in the Columbus area. The church began meeting in his home in July of 2009 with a God-given vision to reach people who weren't already going to church. So far, the group continues to grow and is very excited about worshipping in Brookstone's beautiful auditorium! 

Everything we do at The Ridge is designed to connect people with Jesus Christ. We desire to reach people where they are and help them realize that God loves them and has a purpose for their lives.

 Our Vision

"Inviting everyone to experience the love of Jesus, acceptance into God's family, growth into Christian maturity, and guided preparation for the journey."

This is lived out through our:

* Compassion for others.

* Connection with God and each other.

* Commitment to becoming more like Christ.

* Calling upon the Lord with our worship and prayer.
