Elevation Church was founded on the faith of eight families who risked everything. They sold their houses, quit their jobs, and occupied Charlotte believing that God would blow their minds and turn this city upside down. That risk resulted in a remarkable return. In our first 20 months, Elevation became one of the fastest growing churches in America. We saw countless stories of changed lives, restored marriages, freedom from addictions, and the purpose for living that only Jesus can provide. Our Dominate series began a season of fundraising for Elevation Church's first permanent location — but a location God had yet to show us.
