About Us

The Gospel Coalition: Carolinas Chapter (TGCC) exists to promote gospel-centered ministry in the area of North and South Carolina. Our aim is to serve ministry leaders by providing an atmosphere in which likeminded individuals can connect with one another, find resources, encourage each other, and be encouraged. Our hope and prayer is to see God bring together people from all across our region committed to gospel-centered ministry for the next generation. Through prayerful collaboration, we long to see the gospel strengthen our churches, reach the lost, and shine brightly in our communities – all to the glory of God.

In summary, we are a collection of pastors and ministry leaders who desire to see people transformed by the gospel and we want to serve the local churches to help achieve that end.
