Recent research done by NC Baptist revealed that 9 of the 10 most unreached areas in North Carolina are within the 485 loop. Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina with a population of over 850,000. It is currently one of the top 10 fastest growing cities in the US, growing by 150 people per day. It is estimated that 100 different languages are spoken within the city limits because of the increase of international businesses and the universities.

The northeast area of Charlotte between Charlotte University-UNCC and 485 is one of these areas. There are over 45,000 people (African American 42%; Caucasian 40%; Asian 10%; Latino 6%; Other 2%) with 90% non-evangelical. At UNCC there are 29,000 students with 1900 International students.



Charlotte, NC

King's Church

Our vision is to multiply disciples, leaders, and churches for King Jesus by equipping disciples who enjoy Christ and evangelize the lost.

Through the study, application, and accountability of the Scriptures, disciples are equipped to maturity in the likeness of Christ increasing in love of God and others. As we mature, we rejoice in the Lord Jesus and we share our joy with others through evangelism that others may know the love of God. As the Lord multiplies disciples, we seek to develop leaders and send out church planters.

The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Join us as we seek to glorify God in the booming city of Charlotte.

We are seeking laborers who will join us in Charlotte to advance the gospel among the next generation and the nations.
