Thanks for checking out the NPC website… I want to personally welcome you to North Park Church online. You might have noticed our theme is “intentionally different”. At NPC we are not trying to be like the church down the street. We hope to accomplish our God given purpose and mission- and that means doing church a little differently than you might expect. Whether it’s the music, the message or the multimedia- we want it to be real. And we want to be real. No faking it here. So come on in… relax and be yourself. See and experience the intentional difference of NPC.


Pastor Lyn Hansen


He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners 
and recovery of sight for the blind, 
to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Luke 4:18-19

Thats why we are here.

Jason married Crystal on Jan 9, 2016 and has a son, stepson and stepdaughter with her. He  worked all of his adult life in music, graphic design and screenprinting until entering into pastoral studies an North Park Church in 2012.

“In 2011 I was in treatment for the 11th time and God had removed all of my excuses. He was telling me to stay in Columbus and plug in to North Park. I knew absolutely that this was His will for me and, for the first time in my life, I intentionally decided to refuse my own methods of comfort, reject my own worldly understanding of things and trust God. Today I have purpose, I know what peace that surpasses all understanding is, I know Jesus, want to grow in His likeness and want to grow His kingdom. .”
