Watch a Message from our Founding Pastor
In the Fall of 2020 and after 15 years, Al Hardy, the Founder and Lead Pastor of CityChurch Charlotte, announced his decision to move on from his role. We are asking God to help us find our next Lead Pastor.
We are looking for a servant leader who provides loving, approachable and non-condemning leadership; is a clear, dynamic and effective communicator of the Gospel; can teach on the ministry of the Holy Spirit; has a shepherd’s heart for the least and the lost; is comfortable empowering others; takes the mission seriously, but can have fun with a good sense of humor; and can fully embrace CityChurch’s vision, mission and values.

Waiting and Praying
As we wait for God to send the person He has already chosen to be our next lead pastor, the most important thing we can do as a church is to pray. Prayer is the way we align our plans with God’s plans, and that is the primary goal for this process.
Please pray for:
Please join us in prayer. These will be physical gatherings at the church on two Sundays each month. One will be before the worship service; coffee and donuts will be provided. One will be after the worship service; popsicles will be provided. Feel free to bring the whole family.
Please join us for the weekly Power Prayers on every Wednesday at 12:30 pm. This is NOT a physical gathering and it is NOT a Zoom meeting. Just stop whatever you are doing and join us in spirit to pray for CityChurch and the search process.
Please commit to pray daily on an individual basis for our church, our staff, our senior leadership team, our search team, and for the pastor candidates.
We are a friendly bunch who can’t wait to greet you with a warm welcome and assist you in any way we can.
