Providence church began with a vision to start a new church in the west Lake Norman area to meet the needs of one of the fastest growing communities in the Charlotte Metro area. This new church plant started out with 6 families from Northside Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC in the fall of 2006. Under the leadership of 4 founding elders, including lead pastor Ben Rudolph, we began our first service on September 10, 2006 meeting in the Lake Norman Gymnastics building. After a period of growth, the Lord opened the opportunity for us to start meeting at the new Lincoln Charter High School. Since our first service we’ve been able to see God help us accomplish our vision of multiplying disciples in our church and in our homes, and we’ve been able to see God glorified in the aiding of starting new churches locally and internationally.
Letting God write your story – If you were to write your life story out, what would it look like? It’s an intriguing question because very few of us take time to reflect over the course of our existence and ask ourselves, “What have I accomplished?” or “What impact have I made in this world?” We all strive for significance whether it’s in our jobs, families, or hobbies, but who will remember you or your story once you’ve left this world? Our stories last, if we are fortunate, for a few decades and then it is ended.
At Providence Church, it is our desire to help you let God write your story, a story of faithfulness to God from your generation into the ones to come after you. The great story of God and His love spans the generations of time. It is a story that was significant 2,000 years ago, and it is still meaningful today. The only way we can find true purpose and joy is when we join the great story of God. Every life has a story. Who’s writing yours?
