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 holistically supportive community for homeless and broken refugee families.


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.

The Academy

One7 Academy is a small private Christian school, where refugee children connected to the ministry are empowered to overcome their circumstances and excel to their God-given potential. One7 Academy is its own 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit. For any donations and/or inquiries specifically directed to Academy, please contact MC Garrett at MC@one7.org.

"You take what's left and you make it beautiful"

Outwardly these apartments may look like they are falling apart in some areas, and yes they are but inwardly they are full of life. This life shines brighter and brighter every Thursday Night Live thanks to every single individual who walks through those gates. With open hears and serving hands people come from all over Charlotte and its surrounding cities to gather as one big family. To love without boundaries and to be the hands and feet to the least of those.

Thank you to #BethelBaptist & their friends for willingly taking on the rush hour traffic through Charlotte and coming down to provide a warm meal and so much more for everyone who was present last night. It's because of selfless gestures like this and many others that we are the strong ministry that we are this day.

While outwardly the One7 apartments may not look like much, God has managed to restore and redeem from the inside out. Thank you to those who are a part of this beautiful story that only Christ could orchestrate!
