About National Church Residences


2335 North Bank Dr., Columbus, OH 43220, US

Mission Statement

Our Mission: Originating from a Christian commitment of service, our mission is to provide high quality care, services and residential communities for all seniors. Our Vision: To advance better living for all seniors, enabling them to remain home for life. Our Promise: Excellence that transforms lives.


In 1961, the Reverend John R. Glenn and four Ohio Presbyterian churches formed National Church Residences out of a Christian commitment to serve older adults' housing, social, and human needs. Today, our success stands on that spiritual foundation.

Bristol Village in Waverly, Ohio, was National Church Residences' first housing community, and has grown to meet a full range of lifestyle needs, including independent living in more than 400 individual homes, supportive services in an 82-unit apartment complex, a 25-unit assisted living facility, and skilled nursing care in a 50-unit convalescent center. In 2001, Bristol Gardens, a 12-unit Alzheimer's care retreat, was added to the campus.

The year 2011 marked our 50th anniversary since the purchase of our flagship community in 1961. For more than 50 years, National Church Residences has seen explosive growth and forged dramatic inroads for seniors and families in need of safe, affordable, comfortable housing.
