Columbus OH Urban Plunge

The Columbus, Ohio RTNI Urban Plunge is a unique experience. We stay in the home of Aaron and Emily Starr, two wonderful young people who founded and run an inner-city ministry in Columbus OH called Reaching The Nations International (www.reachtni.org). Their Urban Ministry includes Youth Bible Study for ages 5 – 12, Proverbs 31 Girls which teaches girls ages 9 – 18 basic life skills, Money Talks, their financial literacy program for ages 13 and up, one-on-one tutoring and Young Gardeners of Milo, a 1000 sq. ft. garden project. Their global ministry includes work in Haiti, Venezuela and India. Their unofficial ministry includes hanging out with neighbors in their home and connecting neighbors with resources when possible. Their ministry house is located at 837 East 2nd Avenue, Columbus, OH, 43201. (Emily is the daughter of Jerome and Paula Lange, our friends in Liberty, KY.)

During our visits we participate in a variety of activities including service activities with the young people served by the Starrs, working on their new ministry house, hanging out with the teens and sharing life experiences, playing games, doing Bible activities, sometimes visiting The Ohio State University, and much more.

Our next visit is being planned for FEBRUARY 23 - 25, 2018. Registration is open! Limit of 9 participants. A few spots may remain open due to the change in date. Email Mr. Forman if you are interested in an application.

Contact Mr. Todd Forman (tforman@mndhs.org) if you have any questions.
