21st Century Church

Church + Network + Movement

Church + Network + Movement

We’re on a mission to reimagine the 21st Century Church based on the founders (Jesus) intent.  We’ve been captured with the vision to see the church as a societal movement in community so we build the local church with an imagination for a societal movement. Have we arrived yet? No. Not even close, we stay close to the heart of our heavenly father. As He directs us, we move. Our strategy is simple, we pray and we obey.

Real Talk About Race five-week E-course Serious 

The protests following the killing of George Floyd and others have made race the central conversation in America. While you long for your church or organization to reflect God’s vision for a loving, unified and diverse family, you may be unsure where to begin. In this five-week academy, you’ll participate in an honest conversation about race and learn how your congregation can face the divides in our country with love and unity.

Songwriting conference

We believe that every church should be writing their own songs!

We are bringing in experienced writers, worship leaders, and industry experts to help coach you, encourage you, and inspire you to bring your best, most creative work forward, in service of the community God has called you to serve.

Pastors OlaDele & Oneya Okuwobi

Founding elders of 21st Century Church

We never wanted to start a church; as a matter of fact, we thought people who started churches were certified crazy. Our only desire and passion was to love the Lord our God and serve all people well.  We wanted to see  people being encouraged and  freed to fulfill their purpose and calling. We believe in people – we believe in their potential and also in their incredible ability for them to actualize. 


The sound of our worship


We resource the the body of Christ with  songs of  worship. Cross Worship Music is a collaboration of worship leaders based in Cincinnati, OH. Our heart is to reconcile the body of Christ across denominational and racial divides and to worship united as one.
