Wisdom of Old "Soles"

Walking God’s Path Together (John 3:17)


Charlotte Awake’s founders stand in a long line of prayer intercessors over the city, faithful, anointed, and called. They have sensed the Lord’s desire to pour out His Spirit for awakening in Charlotte and beyond. They have also felt that this prayer will initially manifest in small groups like prayer campfires throughout the entire city.

Multiplying disciple-making communities one heart at a time

We live in a time of church transition not seen since the great Reformation of the 16th century, where younger generations challenge the church’s forms and structures once taken for granted. Disciples are supposed to make disciples, not members. Leaders are supposed to train competent leaders, and disciple-making communities are supposed to multiply into other disciple-making communities. Church Awake trains new generations of disciples and leaders to be the church in organic New Testament ways with a focus on Jesus and His Word by His Spirit.

Walking God’s Path Together (John 3:17)

Wisdom of Old “Soles” is a ministry that uses the same technology to bring people to Jesus that Satan uses to pull them away from Him. The purpose is to mentor, develop, and provide GenZ Christ-followers (1995-2012) tools to become disciple-makers so they will create disciple-making communities of believers.

It’s an Ark!

It’s an Ark!

It’s 1977. Commodore, Tandy, and Apple introduce personal computers collectively known as the “1977 Trinity.” At that time, many thought of the personal computer as a way to balance a checkbook, play a video game, and stop a door from slamming closed in the wind. Who would have imagined that a small personal computer would forever change the world? No one had seen one before.

Psalm 1

Psalm 1

Only a fool wants to be a fool, and the rest of us work hard not to become one.

Stupidity, ignorance, and foolhardiness are hardly a science. Anyone can be an amateur practitioner. But being a fool is an art.

The thing is, you don’t wake up in the morning and simply decide, “Today I will not be a fool,” as you might say, “Today I will wear a blue polo and jeans.” After all, how does a fool know that he is a fool? Does the mere concern indicate one is not a fool, or do we all labor under a mass delusion that we are all somehow wise?

About Us

In the early 2000s, the prayer mothers and fathers of Charlotte birthed “Charlotte Awake.” They did so because of a keenly felt need for revival in the church and spiritual awakening in the community and culture.

No one knew the details beyond that, but by faith, “Charlotte Awake” became an umbrella for believers with the same vision and calling for God’s church. This open group has always been diverse, brought together by the Holy Spirit, trusting God for His kingdom and His will as we near Jesus’ return.

Charlotte Awake remains a movement where people feel called to pray. Originally stewarded by Bob and Mary Lance Sisk, Dr. Bob Lowman, Bishop Larry Jackson, and others, in 2014, Dr. David Ingrassia became the movement’s current steward—one always headed by the Lord Jesus.

We are followers of Jesus, anointed and called. Since 2014, a Board of Elders oversees Charlotte Awake’s staff and ministry operations. The prayer movement remains as it was, an open and diverse calling of all who are anointed by God’s Spirit to pray for church awakening in Charlotte and beyond.
