Someone I met there emailed me this ab Charlotte:
"Charlotte is indeed a great place to live and work in ministry, In addition
to having three topnotch seminaries, there are a number of new churches
targeting the emerging culture.
Forest Hill has been planting churches for about eight years -- Lake Forest
in the Lake Norman area; Warehouse 242 in the center city; and Threshold in
Weddington. Of the three, Warehouse would appeal to the youngest, edgiest
crowd; Threshold is exploring Len Sweet's EPIC model for ministry and
reaching families with children 10 and younger (although the age range of
the church is pretty diverse).
The Metrolina Baptist Association has been planting churches with a forward
looking vision. I'm not sure how intentional they are in reaching "the
emerging culture" but they are fairly young congregations. You could check
out Charlotte South, Charlotte North, and I think they recently launched
Mecklenburg Community Church is a church that looks a lot like Willow Creek;
they're on the north side of Charlotte. They just planted a church in
Huntersville with a little younger demographic.
On the south side of the city, several other churches to consider:
Southbrook Community Church, Weddington Community Church, and Christ the
King Anglican Church -- all trying to reach young unchurched people."
So that's a start!
