Who We Are

We are a church community that is learning to live and love in Jesus.

What to Expect

We all get together on Sundays to worship God. We do this in many ways. We sing songs to God which is a lot like prayers set to music. We share stories or testimonies of God’s love and power. We teach using the Bible as our authority, and from time to time remember the sacrifice Christ made for us through Communion. Our building is handicap accessible.


The Real Meaning of Church

Most people think the Church is the building. That’s an accident of history and translation. When Jesus used the word He meant “people called out”—that is, people called out of normal life to follow Him in an extraordinary adventure.

Brandon Snow

I began attending MC in July of 2011, where I have experienced exponential growth as a man, husband, and father. Back in 2012-2013, I co-led 2 different Story Formed Life small groups. Laura and I have led a few other small groups in the years since, including a DMM study with a neighbor, pre-Covid. We have also engaged in some family-oriented events, like a version of a church picnic, and started and led Family Camp. I regularly volunteer to run the soundboard for Sunday worship services and am an occasional volunteer for children’s Sunday School.

I married Laura in December 2011. We now have 4 sons: Luke, Levi, Liam, and Lincoln. In 2020, at the dinner table, we were reading the story of Nicodemus’ interaction with Jesus, Luke accepted Christ for the first time and was baptized about 2 months later. What a gift! Laura and I have been especially blessed to have been built into by some really incredible spirit-led leaders. We look forward to many more years of this, as well as having more opportunities to disciple others in the Lord.

John Treas

In the Fall of 2015, I attended a teaching one night at MC, and although I had never been here before, I knew the Spirit was calling my family. We started attending and in 2016 began to lead an MCC NKY Small Group where the Lord has kept us in an incubator of prayer and worship ever since. We also had the opportunity to help start the Family Camp at MC. In this church family we have learned to confess, repent, and worship the Lord in a richer way than ever before. Our eyes have been open to the greater spiritual world increasing our vision and discernment into the Kingdom and the battles they present the church. I have learned the Spirit wants to move and speak, and we are learning how to position ourselves to allow His will to be done. Under the leadership at MCC, I have learned that the Lord’s journey in our lives is a continual loving process of relinquishing our will, renewing our minds, and healing our hearts so that we can conform to Christ and reach Abba’s sons & daughters. I am filled with the anticipation and hope of His relentless pursuits.

Royce Baker and his wife, Liz, have been attending Mariemont Church since 2009, when they moved to Cincinnati to help relaunch the local campus ministry with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ).

Katie Smith

Director of Kingdom Kids

Hi there! My name is Katie Smith and I get the awesome privilege of serving our church as the Director of Kingdom Kids Children’s Ministry. I love facilitating a true experience of Jesus - our kids pray for one another, practice hearing from God and learn about their mission to bring the Kingdom of God to those around them! I also love bringing families together to develop deep, life-giving community.
I have worked as the Director of the After-School Program at CHCA Otto Armleder, I’ve been on staff with Cru, and I’ve taught positive culture building skills with Perfect 10 Corporate Cultures. I married Jeremy in 2008, a Cincinnati fireman who runs into fiery buildings for a living! Now I am a mom to Nick and Aubreigh.

Mike Brownfield

Director of Operations

I love the vision and mission of Mariemont Church. I was born and raised in the Cincinnati area, accepted Christ in my early twenties and have been a Jesus follower ever since. My desire is to use the gifts God has given me to serve others and further God’s Kingdom. After 33 years working in the engineering field, I wanted a career change and shared my heart’s desire with God. I hadn’t expected this would lead to a full time church position but was thrilled when He brought it all together in the most unexpected way. I’ve performed the operational side of church work in the past mostly part-time or voluntarily and really get energized by it. MC has a great team of staff and volunteers so I’m really excited to be part of it. I am married to the lovely Renee and have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.

Nancy joined our staff in January of 2023 after moving from California to be near “framily” (friends like family). She brings years of experience in marketing and the publishing industry. At Mariemont Church she manages communications and finances in addition to a lot of office “stuff.” She loves animals, swimming and snorkeling, and when she can, kayaking.
