Bringing Hope to Ohio

Jason Schlabach, Founder and Director of Door of Hope Ministry in Columbus, North Carolina was born and raised in Sugarcreek, Ohio.

Door of Hope Ministry offers Christian counseling to individuals, marriage counseling, and teaching of kingdom concepts to the larger Holmes County, Ohio area, including Sugarcreek, Mansfield and Berlin, Ohio.

Jason and Fern's Back Story

Jason and Fern Schlabach served a Christian counseling internship with ICBC (International Center for Biblical Counseling) of Carmel, Indiana, now Deeper Walk International and also a ministry stint with Fresh Start Training Center of Washington, Indiana. Then they moved to Columbus, North Carolina and joined up with Nelson and Sara Coblentz and Gospel Express Evangelistic Team.

Nelson was also raised in Ohio and Jason and Nelson had teamed up when Gospel Express conducted tent crusades in the Holmes County and Berlin, Ohio region. Through this experience, Jason was exposed to Christian counseling for individuals and marriages and saw a need for it.

The work of Gospel Express in North Carolina was prison ministry and community evangelistic crusades. Jason was fulfilled in his work but his personal vision for a Christian counseling ministry wouldn’t go away. On July 1, 1999 Door of Hope was formed in Columbus, North Carolina.

"It is imperative that when life happens and we feel a negative emotion stir up, that we choose to act on the truth and not on what our rational and logical mind may tell us."
