You don’t need to travel far to cross cultures! Encounter Columbus is a two-day missions training experience August 6-7 with Encompass World Partners in the growing and increasingly diverse city of Columbus, OH. Experiencing Columbus' diversity gives you a glimpse of God's heart for the nations and reveals that there are people who don't know the Lord right in front of you.

Participants will...

  • Encounter beauty in the diversity and complexity of culture.
  • Encounter Islam and Hinduism and learn how to share their faith with friends and neighbors.
  • Encounter God's heart for the nations, especially the least reached.
  • Encounter how they can be a part of God's plan to reach the nations!
