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

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 16  families from 10 different countries living at One7 Apartments, with approximately 50 children living on site. We have 4 staff, and 8 staff children living in our on-site housing. We live together, eat together, study together, laugh and cry together, and play together. Every single day we are in community as we pursue Christ in all we do, learning and living in a way only possible through Jesus Christ.

Soccer Academy

We build leaders and spread the Gospel using the universal language of soccer through training programs, One7 club teams, and our own 7v7 tournaments. 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. Every practice, our coaches share a devotion to end the night, creating time for wounded children to hear words of hope. 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, through our words and actions.

Community Center

Our community outreach center is a site for players, students, and families. Our soccer players practice at our facility weekly, using our indoor and outdoor fields. We host 7v7 tournaments at our center, bringing in teams and players from the surrounding area. Monday through Friday, our outreach center serves as a site for 60 elementary, middle, and high school students to attend our after-school program. Our staff and volunteers help students with homework, reading, and tutoring. We host community events at our center, where families come to receive resources such as school supplies, eye exams, food, and more. Our outreach center is a connection point to learn and meet the needs of the families around us.
