The Hub is a collaborative for equipping leaders and multiplying churches throughout Charleston.
240 churches by 2040 — To see 240 gospel-centered churches established, collaborating, and multiplying throughout Charleston by 2040.
Gospel — The Good News that God saves sinners through Jesus Christ truly does change everything. The gospel isn’t something you merely believe once or graduate from, the gospel is the core truth of our faith. We want to equip and coach leaders with the gospel and before we ever plant a church in community, we plant the gospel. [Romans 6:23]
Collaboration — Everything we do points to collaboration. We even define ourselves as a collaborative. Why are we so serious about collaboration? Because we believe we are better together. Together, we can develop more fully equipped leaders, multiply healthier churches, and revitalize more churches back to full strength. [Matthew 9:37]
Multiplication — Every living organism is born to reproduce. Leaders and churches are no different. It is our desire to see a generation of marketplace and ministry leaders equipped to play key roles in the planting and revitalization of churches throughout Charleston, our state, our country, and the nations. [Matthew 28:16-20]
