Pastor Buddy Watts dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal – to help those who are far from God realize that they don’t have to be. With the help of the Dream Team, 35 people committed to seeing this dream become a reality, Legacy Church began on January 26th, 2014. That Sunday, in spite of a level 2 snow emergency, 118 people attended the first service at Winchester Trail Elementary School in Canal Winchester, OH.


From the beginning, Legacy Church has focused on reaching out to those who do not know God personally and building relationships through small groups. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of our Sunday experiences, and the simple style of Legacy Church has served as a catalyst to bring extraordinary change to the lives of many people who call Legacy home.


In its first few years Legacy has had nearly 100 people commit their lives to Christ. At the same time, Legacy has helped plant 4 churches around Columbus, OH and given another 10% of its income to plant churches across the United States.


We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to seek God with passion! We are excited about your future and believe wholeheartedly that the best is yet to come in your life, and at Legacy Church!
