Charlotte has an abundance of churches and a strong tradition of faith driving civic engagement. But our residents have also struggled to address civil unrest, poverty, and racial tensions. Now, church leaders in Charlotte are joining with the church engagement team at American Bible Society to spur a movement for Charlotte’s renewal. Through faith-based partnerships and the life-changing power of God’s Word, we hope to see our city transformed.
Over 150 million Americans are curious about the Bible. But what about Charlotte? This website is the place for faith leaders to learn what people in Charlotte, both inside and outside our churches, are curious about when it comes to the Scriptures. Many of our city’s people believe there is—or at least could be—a solution to their difficulties in God’s Word, a way for people to come together in faith, unity, and love.
