The Union is a new student ministry in Charlotte, NC founded by Zach & Kristen Griffin and dedicated leaders who want to see Charlotte area youth come to know Christ and become connected with the local church body. Our launch date is August 8th.
There are over 145,000 middle and high school students in Mecklenburg and the surrounding counties (not including private or homeschooled students). The Union seeks to reach out to these students and connect them to the heart of God as well as a local church community. Meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursday nights, The Union provides an atmosphere of worship for those who are followers of Christ as well as an atmosphere to learn more about Jesus for those who may not be familiar with Him.
We need funds to get this ministry started off right. We want to show the students of Charlotte that they are important and that God loves them. We have immediate needs such as file our non-profit paperwork, design our website, promotional materials to get the word out, liability insurance, etc. Once the ministry gets momentum, we plan to partner with local youth ministries and businesses to meet the needs of the students and the ministry. Anything raised above our immediate need goal will go towards purchasing audio/visual equipment for services.
Please consider showing your support for the youth of Charlotte. Each gift - no matter the amount - makes a significant impact in the lives of students in Charlotte.
