The Indian Springs Church of Christ was started by evangelist Rawden Bullard with funds from the Church of 7th Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. It was first started in June of 1955 in the northern area of Columbus in a contemporary brick building. 38 members from the 7th Avenue congregation had transferred to Indian Springs. Under Bullard's guidance, a church bulletin was implemented with the purpose of both chronicling the history of the church as well as uniting the congregation. From 1955 to 1983, The ministers who preached at Indian Springs were: Rawden L. Bullard (June 1955-March 1958), Robert "Bob" J.
