Our Story

TURN is a collaborative network of local churches, businesses and organizations that are working together to reclaim our area spiritually and to create lasting change in a community that reflects Christ.

TURN began as a vision placed in the heart of Bert Lindsay, the founder and president of Lindsay Automotive.

God burdened the heart of Mr. Lindsay that the churches were to take territory, that the Eastside of Columbus needs to come under the leadership of the church and that the church needs to help change the culture of our community and bring together leaders to find a solution.
