"Sow a Seat" Church Bus Campaign

Our faithful 1982 Chevy G30 church van has traveled the streets & highways of Columbus for over the last 3 years. Big Red faithfully served the ministry by providing consistent and safe transportation for children and adults with a desire to attend Rapha Kingdom Community Church , but lacked transportation. She has officially made her last run.

Public transportation can be challenging on Sunday. And while a few accept that challenge, our church is blessed to have one of the most compassionate group of drivers who transport as many of their fellow members in their personal vehicles as possible. In addition to transporting their own families, this leaves little room to safely transport others. There are occassions were multiple trips are made to make sure everyone has a seat. 

The transportation ministry of Rapha Kingdom Community Church  is in need of a 15 passenger minibus and we need your help. Would you help us by sowing towards a seat? Each seat of a  preowned 15 passenger minibus is estimated at $3,333 for a total of $50,000.  We need to purchase the minibus as soon as possible.

Why is it important for folks to get to Rapha Kingdom?
