Who is SMC?

The School of Ministry Charlotte is a Christian-based school of ministry that does life differently. Geared for young adults, our focus is to create an environment for students to discover their purpose, increase their level of influence, and empower them with an intense 9-month discipleship training that goes beyond the church or any classroom. Through this our students are challenged to grow in an intimate relationship with God and pursue the dreams God has placed before them.

How Are We Different ?

The structure of SMC is different than the traditional college/intern experience. It is a transformational experience. Instead of the standardized approach, we offer strategically customized stages of learning that fit into anyone’s current journey. Whether you choose to invest just one year or more, each stage offers opportunities for you to learn different and be different so you can make a real difference in our world.

Our Campus

Nearly 5 years ago, God inspired Glenn and Emily Walters to plant and launch Judah Church. For many years prior, they were invested as youth pastors in Fort Mill, SC. Through that time they were deeply impassioned with investing into the next generation. The Walters, along with their entire team at Judah Church, are committed to standing with our very own at The School of Ministry as together they launch young people into their future. Strongly consider being a part of SMC. This dynamic experience will help identify and cultivate the unique gifting of each student and set them on the road to both success and significance.


"In SMC I learned that God isn't the same God to everyone. He is exactly what you need when you need it. Your experience is not everyone else's experience. He desires to be intimate with you."

— Katelin Simpson SMC Graduate
