Giving Hope to the Hopeless

  • About
The Charlotte Mecklenburg Dream Center exists to give hope to the hopeless by engaging forgotten communities and joining their hands with the body of Christ across Charlotte. Through the Adopt-A-Block outreach program in local neighborhoods, Bible studies in The King's Kitchen each weekday afternoon, financial training, GED classes, job training, an intensive discipleship programming, daily feedings and church services, the Dream Center is connecting those in seemingly hopeless situations with the greatest Hope of all.

In 2010, Jim Noble expanded his successful restaurant group to include the King’s Kitchen. The mission of King’s Kitchen was to serve Uptown Charlotte with a home to find the best fried chicken and other old-school Southern dishes while also serving the homeless and hungry in the city.

As a 501c3, the King’s Kitchen provided discipleship, job training and meals to those in need. Pastor Noble and his wife, Karen, immediately realized that the need in Charlotte was much greater than they initially anticipated.

As an answer to the far-reaching problem, Noble and a team of staff and volunteers are launching the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Dream Center, a member of the Dream Center Network founded by Pastor Tommy Barnett and his son Matthews in Los Angeles, C.A., in 1994. 

To achieve our mission of “Giving Hope to the Hopeless,” the Dream Center partners with businesses, non-profit organizations and churches to offer services providing medical care, clothing, food, housing, training, discipleship, and employment as part of the yearlong discipleshipprogram.
