The Ohio District Heads to Minneapolis!


Ride the District Bus!

Option 1 will depart various locations throughout Ohio on Tuesday, July 9. This option allows the riders to have more than a day to explore Minneapolis and surrounding areas. The starting points will be determined once the churches riding have been finalized. Then a location will be announced. Each departure location will hopefully be no longer than an hour drive from the home church. These buses will meet at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9, to arrive in Minneapolis around 8 p.m. that evening. This option is $230 per person. We will try to put 45 people on a 55 bus. This price also includes money to 'tip' our drivers for their service to us.

Option 2 will depart from various points in Ohio on Wednesday evening, July 10. They will meet at 8 p.m. and travel through the night to arrive in Minneapolis around 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 11, the day the Gathering begins. This option is $215 per person, again figuring on 45 people on a 55 passenger bus and including tip money for our drivers.

Both options will take you to and pick you up from your Gathering hotel! Both options will leave Minneapolis on Monday, July 15 around 7 p.m. They will travel through the night and arrive back in Ohio between 8 and 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 16. The price for either option is approximate but will only change if the number of riders is significantly below 45 per bus.

Those arriving in Minneapolis early may make arrangements to ride our District bus to the Mall of America on Wednesday, July 10.  More information to come!
