Steven Furtick is the founder and lead pastor of Elevation Church, based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Elevation Church meets at eight locations in the Charlotte area, as well as one location in Toronto, Canada. The church has been named one of the Fastest-Growing Churches in America by Outreach Magazine for each of the past six years.
Pastor Dave Vance says it's easy for churches to make assumptions that stop them from meeting their cities' physical and spiritual needs. That was the situation his church was in before they started asking the questions that enabled them to begin reaching their community for Christ.
