The community of Weaverville is located just outside of Asheville, NC. Asheville is the center of economy and culture in the Southern Appalachians. The culture of the area is very diverse, with people of many religions and backgrounds. Asheville is also known for its music and outdoor sports. It is a tourist city where many people come to enjoy the music, food and outdoors. Poverty is also a factor in the community. According to the Buncombe County census, 1 in 4 children will go to bed hungry.
In the Asheville/Weaverville area, we partner in ministry with Covenant Church. From their pastor, Timmy Burnette: “Covenant Church is seeking to reach the community by being missional within the context of our community. This simply means we are going to love our community and invest our lives in the people while we are sharing and living out the gospel. We have a strong heart for biblical manhood. We are convinced that as the Men go, so does the church. We are persuaded that God’s Grace in himself is the greatest gift to mankind. We believe that children are blessings from the Lord. We appreciate strong families and hard work.”
