Love Local

“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”
– Philippians 1:3-5


God calls us to not only spread the Gospel throughout the world, but also to serve our brothers and sisters in our surrounding neighborhoods and communities. Columbus Avenue has three types of Love Local partners: Financial Partners, Community Partners, and Ministry Partners. Each of these partners seek to holistically meet the physical, spiritual, emotional, and relational needs of people in our community.



We encourage all members of Columbus Avenue to get involved in a local expression of engagement in the Kingdom of God. Learn more about our Love Local partners, the main contact for each partner, and get involved! For more information, contact us at or at (254) 752-1655.
