Sharyn and Andy’s Story:
Sharyn and Andy are teachers who serve. The couple chose to live in the South Side of Columbus with the intention of serving their community and showing love to the families in the neighborhood. They serve through every aspect of their lives and go above and beyond each time. In their classrooms, Sharyn and Andy give so much of themselves to create a healthy learning environment for their students and give back to the families of their kids. This couple is active in their church, sharing the gospel in their neighborhood and partnering with local non-profits like the Dream Center and Stowe Mission. They intentionally go into places that some would consider undesirable to live out the mission that God has given them.
Cory and Jennifer’s Story:
Cory and Jennifer have a heart of gold. Their relationship is all about giving and being a part of the same mission. Cory has been a pastor at his current church for 5 years with a unified goal of loving our neighbors. Cory and Jennifer see the physical needs in their community alongside the need for the gospel. They run a community food pantry, a winter drive collecting blankets and hand warmers for the homeless, and the Inner City Toy drive at Christmastime. If someone has a need, they will do everything in their power to meet it. They will provide a hot meal, water and clothing in a heartbeat.
Pastor Cory and his finance Jennifer have built up physical resources for their church to serve these needs as well as spiritual resources through gospel training. They train people to do community outreach and partner with events like Columbus Takeover and Columbus Gospel Fest.
