A team of seven Alabama collegians traveled to Columbus, Ohio, June 7–17 to join with more than 500 students from around the country to participate in ForColumbus, a 10-day extension of Crossover. Crossover is the one-day evangelistic outreach initiative that precedes the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention.

While in Columbus the team — which consisted of two campus ministers and five students from three colleges — had a “different kind of missions experience,” according to Jake Duke, campus minister for five campuses in west Alabama. It was different, he said, because ForColumbus integrated hands-on evangelism training with service projects and witnessing opportunities.

Anna Henderson, a senior at Judson, described ForColumbus as combining “discipleship and evangelism techniques to really focus on the community” they were serving.
