David and Celia Yoran have enjoyed a fruitful ministry as Senior Pastor at Carolina Presbyterian Church over the past six years, but have increasingly felt an internal call to ministry in a more urban environment. They are excited to answer God’s call in western Charlotte to plant a church that reflects the community’s diversity. David and Celia both desire to use their passions and experiences in church planting, church revitalization, and intercultural ministry in leading a church congregation.
David and Celia have six children: Isaac (11), Owen (10), Autumn (7), Eden (6), Asher (4), and Upton (4). David’s oldest four children are biological, and his youngest two children are adopted.
