How We Serve

Mission Increase
Mission Increase teaches Christian ministries to embrace and deploy a biblical approach to fundraising so that ministries are more fully achieving their God-given missions and engaging more of God’s people in their work.

Mission Columbus seeks to advance critical social and spiritual causes through the formation of collaborative Elevate groups. Each group is comprised of congregational and para-church leaders whose ministries serve the same cause. The leaders meet periodically to connect and better know each other, communicate what’s happening and pray for their ministries and look for ways to work together to advance their cause. Current Elevate groups are…

Anti-Human Trafficking Ministries
Gospel-centered Drug Recovery
Hope Centers
Immigrant and Refugee Outreach
OSU Collegiate Ministries
Workplace Leaders Forum

Leader Enrichment
Mission Columbus seeks to enrich the personal lives and ministries of current and future Christian leaders through pastor fellowship and equipping groups, mentoring relationships, and learning groups.

Many young pastors and leaders are eager for the opportunity to learn from the experience and wisdom of older, more seasoned leaders. Mentoring discussions include marriage and family, personal spiritual development, finances, career, and leadership. A year-long learning group helps young leaders grow in their personal life and leadership skills and their understanding of citywide ministry.

Columbus Tutoring InitiativeThe Columbus Tutoring Initiative
CTI is a joint venture between Mission Columbus and Central Ohio Youth for Christ to provide in-school tutoring for elementary-age students whose reading skills fall below their grade level.
