About Us

The Star in The East is a Congregation of "The Way"  of Yeshua (Jesus)  in Canton, OH. 
Our journey began in 1998 as "The Star in The East Messianic Congregation", led by founding and current Rabbi, Michael Oyler. During our first 2 years, we met in the basement of Cornerstone Chapel in North Canton. The next 2 were spent at Christian Assembly of God (Later, City of Hope) in Canton. In 2003, we were given the blessing to have a facility to ourselves, moving into the corner of Plain Township's Oakwood Square, a dying retail plaza at the time of our tenure. It was here that we celebrated 10 years as a congregation. In the Autumn of 2008, we moved into a larger location at the end of the plaza. In 2017, we were guided by God into our current facility, the former Christian Assembly/City of Hope building.
