Mosaic Church began as a conversation in Fall 2017 between founding pastors James Hinton and Shay Osborne. While both were pastoring church plants in Winchester, they began to wonder if their two churches couldn’t accomplish more together.
As they began to pray and seek God’s direction, they brought in their church’s elders and leaders to begin dreaming and praying about what the future would hold.
After numerous conversations, prayer sessions, and fasting, the two church’s membership cast their votes on whether or not to move forward with the merger. It was at that time that Church at Winchester and Mosaic Bible Church became Mosaic of Winchester in Spring 2018.
Over the next three years, the church faced joys, trials, losses, and victories together.
In Summer 2020, co-founding pastor Shay Osborne and his family followed the calling of God to step away from ministry and relocate to Shay’s hometown. Then in January 2021, lead pastor James Hinton was informed that his full-time job would be relocating he and his family.
As the elders at Mosaic of Winchester began praying and fasting for James’s replacement, it was discovered that a pastor with nearly 20 years of pastoral experience would be move to our area and was looking for a church. In May 2021, that pastor, Jamie Limato, was called to be the new lead pastor of Mosaic.
Over the next several months, the elders of Mosaic began to examine and refocus on the mission we believe God has called us to as a church. In August 2021, it was announced that Mosaic would undergo a revamping—starting with a name and logo change. This effort is more than just a rebranding, but a complete refocusing on the mission and vision Mosaic has had from the start.
Thus, Mosaic of Winchester became Mosaic Church.
We are excited about what God has in store of us as a church, within our community, around the nation, and around the world, as we seek to see God glorified in Winchester and beyond. What started as a dream to do “better together” is now becoming even more realized than ever before, and we believe the best is yet to come!
