Who We Are

Why We Exist

We're here to connect people to Jesus and each other.

You are welcome here whether you are brand-new to the church, have been a Christian for a long time, or are looking for more information. We want to provide you with a setting where you can make a connection to God in a community of caring people. To have the most impact, we keep our goals straightforward.
Our mission, vision, and values guide every decision we make as a church in order to shepherd each person in living the abundant life that God has created them for.

Our Vision

Our Leadership begins

With Jesus

The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is the Head of the Church (Eph. 1:22–23, 4:15, 5:23). He is the One that we seek and follow as He continues the movement that He started 2,000 years ago through His perfect life, substitutionary death and victorious resurrection. After He ascended into heaven, He gave us His Spirit and established His Church.
It’s His church, and he’s our Senior Pastor. Underneath the guidance of Jesus are leaders who follow Jesus and encourage others to follow him as well. At SCC, our formal leadership structure involves elders, staff, community group leaders, and church members.

"Not to be served, but to serve..."

Our Lead Pastor

Leading God’s mission here at Sebastian Christian Church.

Todd Thomas

Lead Pastor

I grew up in the small town of Minerva, Ohio. Along with serving in the U.S. Army, I graduated from Cincinnati Bible College in 1993 and entered full time youth ministry. After 16 years as a youth minister (in both Ohio & Florida), God called our family to move to Sebastian where I have been lead pastor for over 13 years! My wife, Cathy, and I have been married over 28 years and have 3 kids (Kyler, Kyrra & Kalley). God has blessed us with a wonderful Church to serve as well as a wonderful community to be a part of.
In addition to serving His Church at SCC, I enjoy sports, video games, outdoor activities, theme parks, and love dogs (Especially Dalmatians – of which we have two).
I love teaching & preaching the Word of God and consider it an amazing, sacred privilege as well as helping minister to those in need.
