Charleston is affectionately known as the “Holy City” because it was settled on the principles of religious tolerance and diversity. Church steeples of various denominations still punctuate the city skyline. Though rich history abounds, the spiritual brokenness of the city permeates the culture. Once devastated by wars, fires, earthquakes and hurricanes Charleston is currently devastated by an absence of true gospel transformation, authentic discipleship and missional living.
An awakening, however, is on the horizon. The recent tragedy in the city is causing the church to rise up and join together to reclaim this city for God’s honor and glory. The harvest is ripe. The time is now. With three undergraduate universities, a medical university, growing businesses, a large underprivileged community and a diverse population, Charleston is a strategic location for engaging brokenness, building disciples, and equipping leaders.
GOD AT WORK IN CHARLESTON
God is at work in Charleston through a city-wide movement of gospel centered churches. Centerpoint Church is joining hands with other new and established churches to strategically engage the brokenness of our city by passionately pursuing Christ, living missionally and equipping leaders.
We are trusting God to transform Charleston with the gospel. With a plentiful harvest and a shortage of laborers we have an abundance of opportunities for ministry. Come partner with us in this vision as the gospel works in us, among us and through us.

THE CHARLESTON RESIDENCY
It’s an exciting time in Charleston as we launch the ministry of Generation LINK. Come be a part of laying the foundation for years of fruitful ministry. The city is in need of the gospel and the church is in need of leaders and laborers to bring it to them.
Our focus is on leadership development through hands-on ministry experience in the context of gospel community. Our Generation LINK residents will enjoy a front row seat on the inner workings of a young church plant. Through intentional training and participation in various church ministries our residents will not only be personally developed but will have the opportunity to use their gifts and abilities to serve.
In addition to leading in ministries of the church, our Generation LINK residents will also engage in outreach to youth, college students, neighborhoods and the underprivileged.
