About us

Motivated by the Love of Jesus, Potter’s Wheel exists to love, equip, and empower neighborhood families to thrive.

our history

The Potter’s Wheel Inner City Mission began as an outreach of Evansville’s Oak Hill Christian Center (OHCC) ministry in 2003. 


The neighborhood around the church campus was in decline and had become known for drugs, prostitution, and other criminal activity. The Potter's Wheel had a desire to transform the neighborhood into a thriving community


As a result of feedback from the families served, a clothing bank, food pantry and soup kitchen were organized to meet basic physical needs in the surrounding community.


The Potter's Wheel Inner City Mission was organized as a separate entity from OHCC and became incorporated on October 6, 2003; it received 501(c)3 status in June 2004.
