Welcome to Meck!

Who we are

Learn More About Meck!

Mecklenburg Community Church, more commonly referred to as “Meck,” is a church physically located in Charlotte, NC and virtually located through our Online Campus. Meck is and has always been dedicated to serving God and others. Here at Meck, we believe church isn’t about religion, but instead a relationship with Jesus. 

On any given weekend, both in person and online, you can find a diverse group of people who call Meck their church home. We also have a lot of people who are simply exploring the Christian faith and what Meck is all about. No matter what camp you fall into, we have so many ministries that fit any and all seasons of life you may find yourself in. We encourage you to explore the website to see how Meck could impact your life in the best way possible. We're so glad you're here!

What we're about.

Through the Years

Meck's Story

Meck was founded

The story of Mecklenburg Community Church (Meck) first began as a vision in the heart and mind of Senior Pastor, Jim White, and then took a step into reality in the University Hilton Hotel ballroom on October 4, 1992.

1997

Through the ups and downs

During these next few years, Meck dealt with a large-scale break-in and robbery, as well as our senior pastor's resignation to become the president of one of the world's largest seminaries. As it turned out, this wasn't exactly what God had in mind. Thankfully he felt called to return to Meck and we were situated with a fresh vision for a new decade. ... Read more

2008

Time to expand

As a result of incredible generosity through our “Unhindered” campaign, construction began on the main auditorium as well as The Grounds Bookstore and Café and The Grounds Loft. It would take another year for the grand opening of The Grounds. Around this time, the Meck Institute (Meck's discipleship program) began to develop into a more robust program with more classes and opportunities. ... Read more

2015

A vision realized

In October of 2017, we launched our fourth Charlotte-area campus, the Rocky River Campus, to make it easier for those in the Concord-Harrisburg areas to invite their unchurched friends, family and coworkers. The vision of the “Let the Children Come” campaign was realized with the expansion of our MecKidz Children’s Ministry classrooms and construction of the Chapel. ... Read more

2019

Let's get phygital

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to close our physical doors, causing us to transition solely to our Online Campus. This made us rethink and redevelop how we produced our Online Campus. Throughout this year, Meck became a hybrid church, offering in-person experiences while attending church online. In every area of Meck, we re-thought what it looked like to be hybrid, including our children's ministry, student ministries, and classes and events we offer. In what can only be considered a blessing in disguise, our “2020 Vision” was realized with over 20,000 people actively attending through our Online Campus. We also developed the Meck Trail stretching almost a mile long through the woods on our property. We offered a Christmas at Meck walk-thru experience where more than 10,000 people walked through our doors to hear the true story of Christmas in a unique and memorable way. ... Read more

2021
1992

We broke ground

Our growth led us to move from the Hilton to David Cox Elementary to Vance High School. We purchased land in 1997 and in 1998 - in what can only be considered a miracle -  had to go from dirt to a building in 90 days. We officially opened our physical campus on Browne Road. A second floor providing more space for ministry opened in 1999. And following our "Changing the World" campaign in 2000, we were able to expand the auditorium in 2001. ... Read more

2002

Let’s take it global

During this era, Missions 2.0 was established and expanded from local projects to teams being sent throughout the world. A "2020 Vision" was unveiled that cast the vision of being a church of 20,000 active attenders with ministry in 20 countries by the year 2020. In light of this vision, three new campuses were launched, internationally in the United Arab Emirates and locally in Lake Norman and Mountain Island Lake. In terms of our 2020 goals, by the end of this run Meck was approaching 8,000 active attenders with ministry in 11 countries. ... Read more

2013

Taking off

This 5-year run saw the church expand its reach both here in Charlotte and around the world. Our Missions 2.0 program grew to 15 countries serving the least and the lost and we added thousands more active attenders. The church began to host the annual Church & Culture Conference, reaching hundreds of church leaders across the U.S, and in the U.K. and The Leadership Development Program was created to develop and grow volunteer leaders within the church. ...

2017

Out with the old, in with the new

In a move that can only be considered prescient, Meck closed our three satellite campuses in the Charlotte area and refocused our efforts into the expansion and growth of our Online Campus. With the long-awaited completion of the outer loop of I-485 in Charlotte, it removed the barrier of distance to attend our North Charlotte Campus. As the digital world became more prominent, the Online Campus became the new “front door” of the church for people to invite others to attend a service. ... Read more

2020

Embracing the hybrid model

With the reopening of our physical campus, we continued to remain a hybrid church serving the ever-increasing numbers attending online while resuming our high-quality in-person services. We look forward to seeing what the future holds and how the footprint continues to change for both our online and physical campuses. ... Read more
