Spartanburg is the place many of us call home.  When those who reside here accept ownership of the needs that exist here, transformation begins.  The call of Come Closer is for the people of God to partner in our community for the glory of God and the good of our common geography. 

There are at least four areas of need in which Biblical mandates to God's people overlap with the needs of our city. The Come Closer partnership network of pastors, business leaders, prayer intercessors, ministry leaders, students and believers are working together to address each of the four needs. Although there is no shortage of good deeds we could perform, we choose to focus on those needs that are larger than any single church or organization could tackle on their own. We seek to strategically engage people in meeting needs that are reshaping the overall condition of our community. We also desire to focus on efforts that enable us to share the Gospel and make disciples.
