The world has made numerous attempts to mend the widening racial gaps, political chasms, and rifts inside our nation, without success.
The Unified>Forward Team is really a community of champions who know that "nothing is more powerful than the love of Jesus to heal our divides." We come from churches, home groups, businesses, and non-profits all around the Columbus metropolitan area to encourage unified and diversified worship (Rev. 7) and use our abilities and talents to influence our world with gospel-centered unity in public spaces.
Since 2020, God has given us the wonderful opportunity to partner with over 50 churches and hundreds of followers of Jesus to put on 22 evangelistic gatherings collectively. Together, we have:
held powerful Christ-centered racial healing events
created bridges between the police and one neighborhood
cleaned up neighborhoods
sang a gospel message of hope at a basketball game at Nationwide Arena
distributed water bottles with a Scripture of blessing to park visitors
organized family events and sporting outreaches that have impacted the lives of youth and young adults
distributed baby formula, food, and toys
prayed for people walking along the streets
witnessed physical healings
were moved by numerous salvations and baptisms that took place in Columbus' streets
Of course to continue this mission, we need supporters. You can help this work even more by making a monthly donation. God is so good because nearly all of our work is carried out by volunteers just like you. We only need 200 people to give $50 a month to meet our budget for 2023. If you sense God's leading to pay it forward, join us!
We never imagined that God would allow us to be a part of so much in such a short period of time, and we simply want to say "yes" to the cause of Christ for as long as the Lord gives us strength.
As we seek to continue this local work in 2023 and add three part-time staff members to support the expansion and the additional collaborative efforts the Lord is having us pursue, we would love for you to join the Unified>Forward Team by prayerfully considering not only giving but serving in the following ways:
1. VOLUNTEERING with us. You can do so by clicking on the volunteer link at the bottom of the page.
2. PRAY for these gospel-centered initiatives as well as for open hearts as we work to achieve Spirit-led unity in the Church of Columbus (John 17:21) and spread the good news of Jesus to people in need throughout our city.
We are incredibly grateful for you and are eager to continue joining in with what God is doing to see a breakthrough come in our city!
