City Ministries

For the Gospel. For the City.

Bible Center Church’s City Ministries exist to glorify God by producing more maturing followers of Jesus Christ in the City of Charleston and the Kanawha Valley.

Our ultimate goal is to invest in the lives of individuals who are hurting, hungry, or homeless in our community. We hope to do this by building bridges and developing ongoing relationships with those who are facing daily challenges.

In order to accomplish this, we seek to partner with other organizations and ministries who are already helping the less fortunate.  As we work with these organizations, our goals are to meet individuals’ physical needs and to share the love of Jesus with them, while also being a light to members, employees, and other volunteers of the organizations themselves.

When we find needs that are not being met by partnering organizations or ministries, we aim to pioneer and create avenues to meet those needs. We hope to do this while networking with other ministries and organizations who share our desire to help people in a healthy, life-changing way. Contact Michelle Thompson for more info.

Transportation for Court Appointments

As Bible Center continues its long-time partnership with Union Mission, we would like to help meet a unique need. Several of their recovery program residents have children in the foster system. These residents need to be at every court date they are assigned so that they can show the judge and caseworkers that they are working hard to put their families back together. Volunteers would drive them to court hearings. [Get more info]
