From our very beginnings, we have put our church customers first for service and value.

The story of Generations begins three generations and over 40 years ago, with our traveling father and son church supply business. Traveling from church to church, town to town, we cared for churches and faith communities throughout Ohio and the Midwest. From those simple beginnings, Generations has grown to be Ohio’s best dedicated church supply service, providing our institutional customers with only the highest quality products, knowledgeable care and service, and the best value on everything they need.

From the beginning, our ministry and our pride has been in providing our church and institutional customers with the highest level of dedication and service. Churches and institutional customers in the Diocese of Columbus and throughout Ohio choose Generations for their consumable needs, including hosts, altar wine, altar candles, incense, annual publications, and more. Our customers choose Generations for service, products, and savings that they cannot get anywhere else, notably because:
