Youngstown Metro Church
Youngstown Metro Church was planted in 2004 by us (Josh & Aimee Shank). Metro, located in a highly unchurched post-Catholic area, was started with a particular emphasis on Youngstown State University. In 2010, Josh transitioned his full-time efforts from pastoring Metro to helping the wider church community through Rocket Republic. Metro continues to speak the gospel under the leadership of their new pastor.
Rocket has worked with Youngstown Metro Church since it’s inception 10 years ago. Through creative and impactful branding, printed marketing and grassroots efforts, Metro has become a well known community, connecting with a large number of students, artists, entrepreneurs and unchurched friends.
