Welcome to the Norwood Christian Church website! I am Pastor John Dotson. I’ve been the Pastor here at NCC since January 2007. My wife Pam and I have two sons, two daughter-in-laws and nine grandchildren spread around the United States. Having been called into the ministry in my 30’s, I attended Bible College and received my degree in Ministry.
Prior to coming to Norwood, we lived in Idaho, where I ministered to the congregation of Victory Christian Church for eighteen years. Before this, we lived in Bend, Oregon where I served Bend First Christian Church as a Deacon, Elder, Sunday School Teacher, Sunday School Superintendent, and President of the Church Board for several years, while at the same time running my small business. It has been my privilege and such a blessing to dedicate my life to the service of Jesus Christ, by serving His people. It is my hope and prayer that all will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus and become part of His family here on earth and someday in heaven. If you live in our area I invite you to come join with us as we serve and worship our Lord together. God bless!
My wife, Mary, and I are the last remaining charter members of Norwood Christian Church. When we decided to get married nearly 42 years ago she wanted us to attend church and I said, “Fine; but, I get to pick the church.” I chose Norwood Christian Church. At that time the church met at the Norwood Christian Youth Ranch on Brasier Hill west of Norwood. The founders of the youth ranch, Don and Virginia Woodstock, moved to Norwood in the early 1970’s started building the ranch. Not having a Christian Church in the area they started meeting as a church in their trailer behind the Back Country Inn. Over the years we have ministered to the entire community and beyond. We seek only Jesus and His grace as is told in the Bible. We try to be more like Jesus in our daily walk.
