We are a non-profit community with a vision; impact the world for Christ through homeschooling. The OSR was created as an outlet for homeschool graduates to meet, mingle, and fellowship, uniting young people from all corners of the US. Today, we are growing and stronger than ever, with a focus that encourages the use of talent, ministry and ambition through The Arts (displayed through dance, skits, singing, music, etc,) small business, outreach, and ministry. Most importantly, the OSR is a retreat for Spiritual uplifting and growth. Jesus is the center of all we do. At the OSR, you will meet, fellowship, and learn alongside homeschool grads from all walks of life. Together, we can expand to reach each other. . .and the world.
Those under the age of 14 are not permitted. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or sibling 18 years of age or older.
"The entire event flows like a well orchestrated song. We meet people, we get to know them, we worship with them, we play with them, we dance with them, we thank God with them, and then we hug them goodbye with their faces emblazoned on our hearts. Many friends I have cherished and kept close to my heart during the following years. I've seen numerous friendships flourish and blossom through the OSR."
"My siblings and I were talking about the OSR, and we all agree. The OSR was physically exhausting yet in every other way (spiritually, emotionally and mentally) rejuvenating!
I always feel so spiritually rested and blessed!"
"I am so excited to be attending the OSR for the first time this year! It is always such a treat to attend events that will strengthen my relationship with the Lord, and at the same time be able to have a blast with like-minded friends"
"The Ohio Summer Rendezvous is a place where homeschool Alumni can gather to enjoy wonderful Christian fellowship, games, dancing, the beautiful outdoors, and devotionals. Come prepared to meet new friends and grow in your walk with Jesus Christ."
"I have had the blessing to attend this event twice and Lord willing will get to enjoy a third! For me the OSR is one of the best events. It has the perfect combination of fellowship and fun. Plus the atmosphere and location is relaxing and refreshing. Just what I need after my crazy summers. The people are awesome and super friendly! The food is never a disappointment and the Ferrars & Co. always do an awesome job in planning fun activities. Please come! You'll leave loving it and regret not coming sooner!"
