Jim Roma

Born in 1951 in Easton, Pennsylvania, I started working early, delivering newspapers and washing dishes. Throughout high school, I worked full-time in a grocery store and meat market. Despite uncertainty about my career path, I pursued college while working in a textile factory. In 1979, I moved to Akron and held various jobs, including truck driving and construction.
Since age fourteen, I've been involved in martial arts, studying under Supreme Grand Master Florendo Visitacion. I've achieved high rankings and have been honored by various martial arts associations. I've also published an autobiography about my martial arts journey.
Spiritually, I found faith in Christ at nineteen and have been involved in various denominations before settling in the Church of God Reformation Movement. I've served in numerous roles within the church, including pastor, teacher, and board member.
Family-wise, I've been blessed with four children, although one passed away. After a divorce, I remarried in 2007 to a fellow church member, Maryann.
In retirement, I remain active in ministry because of my love for God and people.

Jonathan White

Jonathan White's passion for music ignited in his early years, shaped by his family's involvement in church ministry. With his father serving as a pastor and evangelist, Jonathan's upbringing was steeped in singing alongside his siblings and parents, fostering a deep-rooted commitment to spreading the message of faith. Tragedy struck when a drunk driver claimed the lives of his parents, thrusting Jonathan and his wife, Sheila, into the role of caretakers for his younger siblings. Despite the overwhelming burden, they found solace in their faith, witnessing God's grace amidst the darkest of times.
Amidst trials, including the birth of a daughter with Down Syndrome, Jonathan and Sheila discovered profound lessons in God's plans. Their daughter, Brittany, became a beacon of inspiration, leading them to support others navigating similar challenges. With the birth of their son, Austin, joy returned, and Jonathan's ministry expanded, aiming to uplift others in their spiritual journeys, reminding them of God's transformative power in adversity. Whether performing on grand stages or in intimate settings, Jonathan's unwavering dedication to sharing the message of hope and faith resonates, touching hearts and souls with each note sung.

Who We Are

When the Ohio Church of God Men's ministry began in 1976, the members had a vision for all men in Ohio. They would seek to live out the message and ministry of reconciliation through corporate fellowship and mission by the grace of God. For many years, the men's ministry hosted a spiritual retreat known as the Ohio Men’s Ox Roast. Today, the fellowship, mission, and retreat continue as the Ohio Christian Men's Fellowship (OCMF).The OCMF is a retreat in which Christian men gather to engage in fellowship with one another. This event has many different activities that men of all ages can enjoy. The retreat takes place over two days and is always scheduled the first weekend after labor day. Weekend events include a multitude of athletic and outdoor tournaments, sermons from an accomplished Christian speaker, devotional sessions, musical worship, and loads of recreational activities. All Meals are homemade and included. Accommodations are also included, which include cabins, RV hook-ups and open space for tents/hammocks. The OCMF retreat is a time for men to grow in their faith and meet and fellowship with brothers in Christ. Through the OCMF, Christian men across the state have raised money for ministry outreach and challenged countless numbers of men to serve the Lord. The OCMF is lead by a council of men that meet multiple times per year, under President Lance Rose, to plan the annual retreat. If you are a man interested in helping us plan this retreat, or a woman interested in helping with food preparation, please reach out to us at

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two- edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” ~ Hebrews 4:12
