Domestic Ministries at Dwell Community Church exist to provide an effective witness for Christ in the Columbus metropolitan area. We seek to share the love of Christ to people in our community as well as around the world.

In 1990, Bhutan expelled more than 100,000 residents of Nepali descent, who then lived inrefugee camps in Nepal for nearly 20 years until resettlement began in 2008. Many of these Bhutanese refugees have resettled in the Columbus area. We have a burden for this community and have been working among them for many years. Outreach in this community has led to the planting of many home churches. This ministry has taken shape thanks to many faithful workers.
Currently, our ministry to the Bhutanese-Nepali community consists of primarily youth ministry. Our goal is not only to strengthen and grow the existing groups but to develop a solid base of workers from which to ignite home church planting among Bhutanese-Nepali in all stages of life. We are working to help students to be life-long followers of Christ and teaching them how to share the love of Christ with their family and friends.
Central Ohio Youth for Christ
Dwell Community Church works in partnership with Central Ohio Youth for Christ. Youth for Christ (YFC) is an evangelical ministry that began serving youth and families in central Ohio in 1981. A significant portion of YFC's ministry is dedicated to working with at-risk teens both from urban neighborhoods and those held in local juvenile detention centers. YFC serves more than 4,000 at-risk young people every year through their various outreaches, which include mentoring, job and life-skills training, faith-based programming, and professional counseling.
YFC's goal is to develop life-long followers of Jesus Christ from at-risk communities, who in turn become servants and leaders within these communities.
