What We Do

We put the Gospel into action.

Living and serving within Charlotte’s inner-city refugee community, we take Jesus’ call to love, disciple, and provide for those most in need as literally as possible.

Through One7, God is making the impossible possible – transforming lives marked by homelessness, abuse, abandonment, and worse into the next generation of leaders for Christ.

The Apartments

The Apartments

Our 18-unit apartment complex is more than transitional housing. It’s a supportive community for homeless and broken refugee and immigrant families to come find healing in Jesus Christ. We currently have 15  families from 11 different countries living at One7 Apartments, with approximately 60 children living on site. We do homework together, eat together, play together, laugh together, cry together, and truly live in community with one another. This place is a amazing representation of every nation coming together to pursue Christ!


We build leaders and spread the Gospel using the universal language of soccer through training programs, One7 club teams, and a strong presence in local school athletics. We have teams ranging from younger recreational teams all the way to competitive club and college soccer. Our players take the opportunity to share about Christ after every game, whether they win or lose. Kids who would never walk into a church come to play soccer at our One7 Apartments or on one of our teams, and learn first hand about the love of Jesus Christ.

Outreach Center

We are so excited to announce the completion of our Outreach Center! God has performed so many miracles from the idea of this building until now. This building will be used to continue to pour out the love of Christ in inner-city Charlotte. We will host our after school program, outreach nights, events, and any other opportunities God provides to share His love. This isn’t just a building with four walls and a roof—it’s a place where hurting and broken people can come to experience His love for them!

This past Thursday night was on fire 🔥
Jesus showed up and worked through our young leaders, from their testimonies to leading worship. Nothing beats the feeling of the Holy Spirit in this place. Thank you Jesus for loving us and reminding us the importance of loving you and loving others. That you call us to a greater purpose, nothing that the world could give us but that only you alone can give us. Thank you to every volunteer who came and did life with us, we are so thankful all the love you pour on these kids!

Special thank you to the United World Missions group for coming and serving a delicious meal! Without people like y'all we aren't able to do what we do on Thursday nights without y'all!

If you weren't able to make it this week we hope to see you next Thursday! Until then we hope you have a blessed week ❤

"And we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean we're all sinking.
He loves us, oh how how he loves"

These past few days have been nothing short of days filled with fun, love, fellowship, joy, smiles and laughter. It started Thursday With our Thursday Night Live, where we ate a meal and worshipped the one true king together as a family. It's beautiful to see what God is doing in the lives of our young leaders, instilling great courage in them. We would like to say a special thank you to Elevation for blessing us with such a delicious meal, we love y'all!

We carried the fun time of fellowship into Friday where we got to spend time and share a meal with the wonderful people from Hopewell Baptist! We are so thankful for y'all and your continuous love you pour over these kids!

Then on Saturday our U10 and U13 girls soccer teams played and won both of their games, but most importantly shared Gods love. There's nothing like seeing the next generation of young leaders rise up!

We then ended our weekend by all going to church together as a family! Jesus thank you for the incredible love and grace you give us. Thank you for dying on the cross for us, thank you for your never ending forgiveness ❤️❤️
