  • Columbus City Engagement Trip

    Our goal is to combine learning and service to provide a week to get to know Columbus better and the needs of the city. We will focus on four key areas:


    1) Education 2) Anti-Sex Trafficking 3) Racial Reconciliation 4) Poverty and Homelessness


    During the week we will hear from different speakers and change makers in the city on these topics. We will also serve with a variety of organizations that are engaging in these needs. This trip will be a little different than a relief work trip like the one to Houston but we will have plenty to do and at the end of each day you will be physically and emotionally tired. A huge benefit of engaging with people, organizations, and the needs right here in Columbus is that you can personally and in community continue to engage, instead of stepping in for a moment and then stepping out. We are excited to see what God will do in the week and we hope you’ll be willing to join us!
