Conrad Esh

Lead Pastor
E-mail Conrad Esh

Conrad grew up in eastern Pennsylvania, consistently cheering for all Philadelphia sports teams and the Penn State Nittany Lions. At the age of 15, he gave his life to Jesus Christ, receiving him as Savior, Lord, and Friend. Upon graduation from high school, Conrad spent a couple years in Hong Kong, participating in YES (Youth Evangelism Service). It was during a time of fasting and prayer as a young adult in Asia that he first sensed a clear call from God to pastor. Even though he questioned whether or not he was “too weird to be a pastor”, he began following the Lord by faith down this trail.

Conrad has now been involved in church planting and pastoring for over 20 years. Along with his wife Vicki, he participated in a church planting team to begin a non-denominational church in the city of Reading, PA. Also, more recently, he helped start Crossway Vineyard Church in the town of Urbana, OH, where Conrad served as the founding pastor for approximately 10 years.

Conrad loves his family! He has been happily married to his wife Vicki for 20 years. They have twin daughters, Bryn and Lydia, who are seniors in Marysville High School. Their youngest daughter, Ellie, is in the seventh grade at Bunsold Middle School. The Eshes are living in downtown Marysville and loving where God has placed them!

Vicki Esh

Associate Pastor
E-mail Vicki Esh

Vicki Esh grew up in a small town in the “Thumb” of Michigan where winters are long and cold!  Upon graduation from high school, she left the Great Lakes State and moved to Ohio to begin her college career.  Within a few hours of her first day on campus, she met Conrad who later became her husband, and life has never been the same!

Vicki received her Bachelor’s degree in Leadership and Ministry from Ohio Christian University, and her Master’s degree in Ministry with a concentration in Intercultural Studies from Hope International University.  She is passionate about human rights, social justice, and seeing women rise up as leaders in the global church.

Vicki has been married to Conrad for almost 20 years, and together they are raising their 3 daughters in their adopted home of Marysville, Ohio.  Vicki loves dark chocolate, strong coffee, long chats with friends, and Michigan football.  When no one is looking, she kisses her Goldendoodle, Junia.

Pastors and Elders

Leading with Teams

We understand the value of leadership in the context of teams. We’re just better together! With that said, our Pastors/Elder Team meets every week to assist our senior pastor and pastors in caring for our church family.  Empowered by the Holy Spirit, these men and women help discern and implement God’s direction for our congregation.
