Our Story

The Beginnings

Pastor Jim Noble and his wife, Karen, founded Restoring Place Church in 2011. Through their work at The King's Kitchen, their not for profit restaurant with job training and discipleship programs, they were called to create a space for community and worship to serve Charlotte's most vulnerable residents. 

Who We Are

Restoring Place is the church of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Dream Center, an organization committed to giving hope to the hopeless. We are a house of loving kindness in the heart of Charlotte. It is our goal to walk in the love of Jesus Christ as He has commanded us to do.


What We Do

We provide a safe and uplifting place for people who have been marginalized because of addiction, incarceration, homelessness and other life crises by building our corner of the kingdom of God based on agape love, accountability, economic opportunities, and a safe haven, using the resources God provides and our own servant leadership developed around integrity, excellence, and peace.
