In July of 1941 Rev. John Nussbaum, pastor of the Alliance Church in the Brooklyn area of Cleveland, acted on a mission to plant a church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Wooster, Ohio. He, along with Rev. Edmund Schumacher and Kenneth Duncan as song leader, held nightly services for a month in a tent in downtown Wooster, and then rented a storefront to continue services into the fall.
Several pastors picked up the work in Wooster over the following year, and in October of 1941 the church was officially organized with 10 charter members and received by the denomination as a Christian and Missionary Alliance church.
After meeting in facilities downtown for many years, a building was erected on Burbank Road in the north end of town and dedicated February 2, 1969 as the Northview Church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Then, in 1976, an educational wing was added to bring the building to its present configuration.
This simple summary of our history explains how we started. The full history of Northview Alliance Church is in the people and their lives, changed by the love, grace and Word of the living Jesus. Our history is really His Story. Come and experience our living, changing and life-changing history for yourself!
