Episode 38: ForColumbus – Join the Movement


This summer (June 7-17, 2015) 1,000 college students will gather in Columbus, OH to take part in ForColumbus. They will be immersed in an experience of life and ministry within the city alongside church planters, and learn to identify and meet physical and spiritual needs of residents. Most importantly, they will be challenged to leverage their lives for the gospel by living life on mission.

Notable Points:

  • ForColumbus is a 10 day immersion experience for college students to learn and participate in ministry and church planting in a city context.
  • God is at work in big ways in Columbus. Over 60 churches have been planted in the last 10 years, with many more preparing to launch soon.
  • The college years represent the most malleable and mobile time in a person’s life. An event like ForColumbus can catalyze a student’s decision to leverage their life for the gospel.
  • Columbus is every city in America. No matter where students are coming from, or where they are going, there is something for them to learn while in Columbus.
