Mosaic’s Story

The idea for Mosaic Church began in 2014 as Pastors Wayne Botkin and Roz Picardo were driving back from a church planting meeting at the Vineyard Church in Columbus. They began to ask the question, “Why is it that when a church is planted only one planter is sent?” The biblical model Jesus instituted in the New Testament demonstrates this work being done in teams; Jesus sent out his disciples two by two. Then they said to each other, “What if we planted a church together?”

Wayne and Roz didn’t give the idea much credence initially because they were each part of two different churches. (Wayne is the Pastor of the South Campus of Christ Church, and Roz is the Executive Pastor of New Church Development at Ginghamsburg.) Yet, neither of them could shake the conversation and started to realize that a God-dream was being birthed in their hearts: two pastors coming together to plant a shared church. But, how could they convince two churches to partner? It’s not typically done. After more thought and prayer, Wayne and Roz decided to approach their lead pastors and others. Surprisingly, all parties were intrigued and supportive. After much prayer, meetings and deliberation, this God-dream became Mosaic Church.

In 2001 he received a Masters in Divinity from the Methodist Theological School of Ohio and served 15 years in youth ministry (6 at Christ Church) before he was appointed as the pastor to help start South Campus. He enjoys time with family, especially his nieces (one of who lives with him and Tricia), attending and cheering them on at various events. Wayne looks forward to meeting you and hearing your story and journey of faith!
