After eight years of leading children’s and student ministry at Forest Hill Church, Pastor Ryan began to feel the Lord burden his heart for church planting in the Fall of 2012. The leadership of Forest Hill recognized his gifting and affirmed his calling and sent him to Matthews to begin to develop a core team. The core team started meeting in the Carson’s living room in January 2014, and Mission Community Church launched on October 19, 2014 at Southern Evangelical Seminary. 

Over the next year and a half, God brought growth to our church and clarity to our mission. In May, 2016, God moved our church to our current location on Providence Road where we have experienced so much of His goodness and grace and have seen Him move in some amazing ways. We believe that God has strategically placed us here in South Charlotte so that more people can encounter and celebrate the goodness of God.
