On August 18, 2002, pastor Joseph Vanès Youance led a group of dedicated Christians, having the heart to serve God and people, into starting a new Ministry known this day as CIFC, “Centre International de Foi en Christ:”
From the beginning, the Lord had provided for everything. We officially opened the church doors for worship service and bible study in a prayer room that Faith Bible Church of South Carolina allowed CIFC to use for free for a period of six months.
Then God sent us to Rhema Covenant Fellowship Center, where Rev. John Brown II housed CIFC’s operation for the next three months until we moved to a location we purchased at 4469 Hobbs Hill Dr. Charlotte, NC 28215, a place we thought would be our permanent worship center. We soon realized that due to urban regulations we could not develop the property for ministry.
While searching for a new place, we were introduced to Converge MidAdlantic, an organization that commits to ignite, connect, and strengthen the Church of Jesus-Christ. This affiliation opened new horizons, spiritually and materially. Right after joining Converge MidAtlantic and with a loan granted to the ministry, CIFC purchased this sanctuary, at 2019 Shamrock Dr, Charlotte, NC 28205. For now, it is our permanent and official operation center.
The ministry operates with a non-profit status under the IRS 501 C (3) classification. We are committed more than ever to serve our community and we plan to impact it by touching one person at a time.
