Because Summer LINK operates through local churches, you can be sure your labor will continue being cultivated long after the summer is over.
Columbus, Ohio is the 15th largest city in the United States and, perhaps, best known for Ohio State University; the largest university in America. But there is much more to Columbus than buckeyes and football. Columbus is a vibrant and growing crossroad of culture with nearly two million residents; more than Cincinnati and Cleveland combined. Ethnic diversity, youthful population, vibrant university life, artistic culture, and recent city revitalization poise Ohio’s capital as a wonderful place to sow gospel seed among the nations. More specifically, Paramount Church is located in Bexley, a historic area five miles east of downtown Columbus. Bexley is home to the Ohio Governor’s Mansion, Capital University, and strong Jewish and Catholic cultures. For many years Bexley has lacked a gospel-centered church, until now. Paramount Church officially began on Feb 18, 2013 and is daily announcing the good news in a key area. We need your help and encourage you to consider joining the effort.

Is Residency Right for You?
The Generation LINK Residency is an intense yearlong residency program through the local church designed to develop men and women as life-long disciple makers. Generation LINK residents gain diverse ministry experience, valuable leadership opportunities, rigorous theological training, and intentional discipleship, all within the context of rich gospel community.
So what makes this a Residency?
Well, just as a medical residency prepares its students for the medical field through intense training in diverse environments, the Generation LINK Residency prepares participants for a lifetime of ministry by doing the same. This training is incredibly valuable, whether participants aspire to be missionaries, pastors, church planters, or men and women in the marketplace.
Maybe Residency is right for YOU!
