Join us for a catered picnic dinner (see menu below) and a battle between the Columbus Clippers and their in-state rivals, the Toledo Mud Hens.

Many of us can remember the gifts that we gave our fathers each summer for Father’s Day. One year, it was probably an ugly tie. Another year, the gift was likely a cheesy mug that read, “World’s Best Dad.”

A guidepost early in our ministry to inner city teens was the question, “What kinds of things did our dads do with us when we were growing up?” We wanted to provide those types of experiences for the teens that we had the privilege of mentoring, and that desire continues to this day.

This event is a homage to that cheap mug and to those priceless memories, which Our Father’s Project now passes on to a group of teenagers who need our help and guidance.

— About Our Father’s Project —

Our Father’s Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been serving inner city youth in Columbus for over 15 years. We are a relational ministry that provides mentoring and discipleship for teens in urban Columbus, Ohio, many of whom are growing up in homes with no father, generational poverty, and family members struggling with substance abuse.

As a Christian ministry, our entire mission points on high to our Heavenly Father. While it may sound quaint to call him the “World’s Best Dad,” we can’t help but wonder if our humble attempts at service end up bringing him the same sort of delight that the cliché mug does for any other loving father.
