Welcome to Ashland County Ministerial Association

Whether you’re in search of friendship, seeking to belong, or you are a pastor seeking advice from a fellow pastor, we invite you to join us at the Ashland County Ministerial Association. We’re here for a lot a reasons, the main one being to support you in prayer and mutual encouragement. We work together to coordinate the community outreach of God. We are the churches of Ashland County.

We know you’re strapped for time. For the last 35 years we’ve worked with our members’ schedules and found a solution for everyone. On the second Friday of every month we meet with 30-40 people who love Ashland and love this community. Connect with leaders across denominations and backgrounds as you work toward a common mission to carry out the call of Christ in Ashland County.




Join us! Gatherings 7:30 - 9:00 AM on the second Friday of each month September - June (December excluded). You can expect good food, time to discuss our common mission, catch up with friends, and most importantly, time to pray for each other. Pastors, ministry staff, and community leaders - all are welcome! Fellowship and food await you.
