Thanks to Emily Starr of Reaching the Nations, International (RTNI), who shared this amazing update with us! 


We are grateful for the partnership and prayers of Sanctuary Columbus Church.  Your generous giving has been a great blessing as RTNI continues to expand into more communities and serve additional students.

We launched a new ministry site in the Trevitt community in the fall of 2020, and since that time over 200 students have been impacted with the gospel, with love, with access to opportunities, and with a consistent presence and safe space within the community.  

RTNI hired two part-time staff in 2022 to help with the ministry growth in Trevitt.

Belinda is a retired minister and Juliana is a student teacher. These two African American women are a powerful team as they bring together generations of experience, as well as new energy and creativity as we endeavor to engage students with the gospel and with each other.

In addition to spiritual growth, we have also seen our students grow in skill, leadership, and maturity.

Ni’Asia has participated in several of our skills camp options, but found her niche with auto mechanics. She successfully completed Beginners and advanced to Intermediate. “I’m built for this!” she said, as she continues to develop the skills needed for a successful career in auto mechanics.

We look forward to see what God will do through our ministry in 2023!
