Zanesville is a city in Muskingum County, Ohio. The population was 25,586 at the 2000 census.
Zanesville was named after Ebenezer Zane, who settled there in 1797 with his son-in-law, John McIntire, at the point where Zane's Trace met the Muskingum River. The city was the second state capital of Ohio from 1810 to 1812. The National Road runs through Zanesville as U.S. Route 40. Novelist Zane Grey was a descendant of the Zane family and was born in the city.
Zanesville is our community. This is where the Lord has decided to plant us, so in essence this is our Jerusalem. Act 1:8 ....and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Zanesville is a little town, it's almost a forgotten town with Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati grabbing all the headlines. But, we believe this is what makes Zanesville a perfect city for the Lord to use for a last day revival. It is like a modern day Nazareth. John 1:46, “And Nathanael said unto him, 'Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?' Philip saith unto him, 'Come and see.' Like Philip said about Nazareth we are saying about Zanesville “come and see.”
