RECHARGE exists to provide spiritual empowerment and professional development to professionals serving in leadership, through song, dance and visual arts expressions. It is the manifestation of a vision to encourage, inspire and reignite the passion for excellence in those who serve in ministry and our communities. In 2017, RECHARGE added two special components: a panel of community and faith leaders who led the conversation "Faith and Community: Bridging the Racial Divide" and support to Hannah House, a shelter for women and children. RECHARGE is committed to doing ministry in and outside the "four walls of the church."
