The Carolina movement is a movement of churches across the state of North Carolina with a heart to see 100 churches planted in 10 years by 2028.  We want to see thousands of North Carolinians from the coast to the mountains come to know Jesus Christ.  The Carolina Movement is composed of local networks of churches based on geographic area that we expect will cover the entire state. The goal of these networks is to partner together to provide resources, relationships, residents, and to reproduce.

The idea of the Carolina Movement was born in 2016 when Chris Hankins and Donnie Williams were moved to partner together to see revival break out in North Carolina in a way that was bigger than any individual church could ever do alone.  What God has done in just the first few years has already surpassed our expectations and we believe He is just getting started in how He is going to use the Carolina Movement!


Our Core Values

Carolina Movement helps leaders, churches, and church planters launch and lead healthy, reproducing churches. Carolina Movement churches are aligned around this mission and uphold these four core values:

1. Relationships

At the core of Carolina Movement are friendships, accountability, and networking. Carolina Movement churches prioritize time to connect with one another regularly.

2. Reproducing

The heart of Carolina Movement is reproducing. Carolina Movement churches are committed to reproducing at every level of ministry.

3. Resources

Carolina Movement is committed to providing Carolina Movement partner churches with valuable resources to equip and empower them to thrive and reproduce.

4. Residents

Church Planting Residents are apprentice church planters who are trained for 12 months at partner churches before launching a new Carolina Movement church.
