Pioneering a ministry multiplication movement to introduce God’s peace to the next generation one heart at a time.

Hi. We're Charlotte Awake.

You’ve experienced the church. But you’ve never experienced being in the church quite like this. Because we’re pioneering a whole new way of engaging with people and growing as a disciple of Jesus. We’re sharing our stories about meeting and knowing Jesus, and inviting others to join us as we encounter Him in His Word. We’re growing together as disciples of Jesus–some of us in new congregations, others as part of existing congregations. In short? We’re making “disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20) Join us?

Prayer and Feasting

Charlotte Prayer Net

We pray for revival.

But prayer is not a formula for revival. It’s an expression of humility that precedes it. It’s a realization that we cannot achieve the mission, cannot direct the vision, cannot move the needles of success. It’s God who does it all. He just invites us into the process when we humble ourselves in repentant obedience by faith.

Bible Clusters

Read. Talk. Pray.

That’s what you do in a Bible Cluster. It simple, but very powerful. Bible Clusters are groups of three or more people who meet together to read the Bible, talk about the Bible, and pray. In doing so, people encounter God through His written Word.
