Igniting Souls Conference (October 25–27, 2019), October 25, Hilton Columbus PolarisSince the beginning of time, we’ve been gazing at our neighbor’s lawn, trying to see whose grass is greener. Thanks to the internet we now have access to billions of backyards—at all hours of the day and night. But grass is no longer the focus. We’ve migrated to followers, dollars, and views.  Comparison is a popular blood sport, making causalities of us all. Our competition isn’t found in the marketplace. It’s found in the mirror. We don’t need to change the world. We need to change ourselves. And somewhere in the process, we’ll end up changing both.  You’ve been created to create, and it’s time to admit that you’re in a race of one. Marathons and mountaintops share one thing in common. Both are reached by taking YOUR NEXT BEST STEP.  LEARN MORE

All those who are dedicated to hiking excursions in Ohio, with a focus on leaving no trace of litter on our lands can join us! We will get together for evening hikes on metro parks trails, gather for day hikes in the Ohio State park and forest system and maybe even do overnight trips if anyone is interested. Lace up your hikers and hit the trail with us! And don't forget to check out the Polls section to vote on when/where to go on the next hike. We are trying to get some dog friendly hikes in for you and your canine companions. Check out the calendar for upcoming meet ups.  LEARN MORE
