The INN: Building Community in Columbus

The INN Columbus desires to see a community of healthy reproducing disciples living as the church in our city. We seek to engage refugees from around the globe and are looking for teammates with a heart gripped with God’s love for those who have not had access to the Truth.

Our ministry focuses on creative ways to connect and build relationships with the diaspora community and international students. In a city where 59% of refugees were resettled within the last ten years, opportunities to share the love of Christ are plentiful!

Come live life with our new neighbors in a cross-cultural community in Columbus.

Join The INN (International Neighborhood Network) and use your skills, education, and spiritual gifts to create ministry opportunities to serve the nations among us! Formal Bible training and an exposure to missiological principles is helpful, but not required.
