OTW Ohio

Our Main location is based in New Philadelphia Ohio

Our main location typically has between 30-45 students and is in the perfect spot on the map to take a day-trip to Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh and other fun locations. New Phila offers many part-time jobs for students to pursue and is home to Kent State University at Tuscarawas, which offers a variety of degree programs.


OTW students live in fully-furnished houses and apartments in surrounding neighborhoods of each OTW location.

Each house or apartment typically has 5-10 guys or girls who are required to do the weekly chores and daily tasks involved in maintaining a living environment. This is so that students learn to live in love and responsibility with others.

School & Work Life

Every student at OTW is required to have an outside focus on non-class days. Students are to either have a job, be enrolled in school or be an active volunteer in the community.

This is so that students are able to leave the ministry "bubble," be involved in their communities and apply what they're learning in classes to every day life and outside relationships. Our heart is for our students to take what they learn and go out to make more disciples wherever they go.

Get Involved In the Church

Off The Wall is not here to replace the local church. Rather, we are here to encourage young adults to participate in it, stepping up in their levels of involvement. Each student at OTW is assigned a ministry role to serve in the church, from working the coffee bar to children's ministry and anything in between. Students are also encouraged to form connections with other families in the church outside of the OTW community.
Ohio students attend The Branch Church's two locations. Local students are encouraged to remain in their home churches.
