SUPPORT NINER UNITED CAMPUS MINISTRY

Niner United campus ministry at UNC Charlotte needs your support. We hope to reach 3,000 students in our upcoming class of 2023, but doing so will take a tremendous effort from our student leaders, interns, alumni, and community volunteers. Reaching this many students will also take quite a bit of funding. There are several campus ministries at UNC Charlotte, but Niner United is the only voice of hope and the only campus ministry that welcomes all in the radical and unbounded love of Jesus Christ.

Last year we offered two weekly worship services and had a multitude of small groups. We took nearly 60 students to Puerto Rico for Hurricane Maria relief, served eastern North Carolina on weekends with storm relief, and sent 26 students to the Holy Land. We also helped several students discern calls into the ordained ministry. This coming year we plan to continue offering two weekly worship services on campus, have even more small groups, are planning fall and spring break mission trips, and have dedicated this year to helping our students connect locally through agencies like the Men’s Shelter, the Rescue Mission, and the Refuge Outreach Project of Charlotte. We are excited about our 2019-2020 plans, but none of this will launch without financial support.
