Our Mission

To reach people where they are so Christ becomes the center of who they are.


God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace.


Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

Meet the pastor of Thirst Church and his family.



Verneda and Adei are North Carolina natives that are approaching 8 years of marriage. They have three children: Jolie, Mijose, and James. Verneda and Adei surrendered their lives to Christ in 2011. In 2013 they served in their local church as ministry leaders for three years. Once receiving the call to plant a church, they joined a two-year church planting residency with ROCKHARBOR in Charlotte, NC. The residency provided the opportunity for hands-on experience with a new church. Adei completed his Master of Divinity at Regent University where his studies equipped him in starting ministries, creating culture, creating systems and strategies, pastoral care and leadership development.
