Welcome to the Cypress Christian Schools! We provide loving care and educational excellence for children from six weeks old through 8th grade.
Welcome to cypresschurch.tv. We exist to connect people closer to Christ and one another by REACHING those far from God, GROWING people in their journey with Christ, and SERVING others in the name of Christ. If you need more information after browsing our site, feel free to contact us. We are happy to answer your questions.
Originally located on Cypress Ave. in downtown Columbus, Cypress has a great family history of reaching people far from God, helping people grow in their faith, and serving others as a way of serving God.
Discovery Seminar, our membership / information class, is offered two or three times a year. Watch for details.
By offering the teaching portion of our worship experiences online, we hope to reach those beyond the doors of Cypress with the news of Jesus Christ. It's also a great convenience for those who do attend but miss a weekend now and then.
Your generosity is Making a Difference. It makes a difference in those who receive help and hope through the ministries of Cypress, and it makes a difference in you, the giver.
One Church. Two locations.

CHRISTMAS COMPASSION PROJECTS
Operation Christmas Child
A small shoebox can teach a child about the love of God, lead him or her to faith in Christ, inspire pastors, and plant new churches. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out is eternal. Thanks for changing lives through the power of a simple gift. Your generosity will bless 992 children with gifts, hope, and the love of Christ in a very tangible way this Christmas.
For God so loved the world . . .
Because LOVE is the answer, and God is LOVE, we are starting a movement to #LoveColumbus. Please join us.
Pay it forward and share your experience at #LoveColumbus or LoveColumbus.tv.
Providing Healthy Meals and Snacks for Kids
We are partnering with local ministries to provide meals to children who would otherwise go without. We will help feed over 400 children a day this summer.
Cypress Financial Bridge Fund
In a church like Cypress, there are always families and individuals in financial need. This fund allows us to help our own who need a "financial bridge" to make it through a tough time.
Next Wave Resident and Internship Program
We feel a responsibility to help train and raise up the next generation of ministry leaders. Over the past three years, we have had sixteen residents/interns go through our Next Wave program of ministry preparation.

If you are interested in furthering your effectiveness and receiving some encouragement at the place where life and leadership collide, then I'd love to have you join me for a Leadership Lunch. My leadership lunches will address the practical side of execution along with best learned practices from the field of leadership development. Life and leadership is not a "one and done" that you can check off your to do list scenario . . . it's an ongoing race.
1 Corinthians 9:24 . . . Paul describes that in a race, everybody runs . . . but only one gets the prize. He then encourages us to run in such a way that WE WIN THE RACE AND GET THE PRIZE!
Hope you can make it,
KEN'S LEADERSHIP LUNCH
Cypress is always looking for ways to serve you as you live out your faith throughout the week. We are inviting you to have a free account to an exciting new video library called RightNow Media. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. And you can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector.
No one should walk through the difficult times of life alone. That's what a church family is all about and one of the reasons we emphasize getting connected at Cypress . . . whether it be a group of people you serve alongside or others who are in a small group or Bible study with you.
At Cypress, the Care Team is a group of compassionate, trained volunteers who share encouragement and support during the tough times.
Below are some services provided by our Care Team.
• Listen and pray with you
• Christian counseling referrals
• Hospital, nursing facility or in-home visits
• Stephen Ministry one-on-one mentorship
To get connected to a Care Team member, call the church office, 614.878.8192, or email email@example.com.
Ministry Internships/Residencies exist to train future leaders by giving them access to ministry responsibilities, leadership coaching, and service to the church by increasing its leadership capacity. Through this experience, we want to see interns/residents discover more about who Jesus is, who they are in Him, and about God's calling in their life. If you are currently a college student in an approved ministry field and you are interested in pursuing one of our internship / residency opportunities, you can find more info by clicking on the links below.
Interested in housing a college student during their residency?
