Join the Journey for Home!

October 14-17, 2021

Welcome Ride 2021–Capital to the Coastis returning this year to raise awareness and funds for CBF of North Carolina’s new missions program, Welcome House Community Network (WHCN). The emerging network seeks to extend Christian hospitality in the form of temporary housing and community outreach to vulnerable people in every NC city and town.  

Over a four-day period, October 14-17, 2021, CBFNC Executive Coordinator Larry Hovis and a small cycling team will ride from the bustling state capital to the beautiful NC coast. Every CBFNC congregation is invited to join the mission and the mandate of embracing vulnerable neighbors by giving generously to sponsor Larry’s team and conducting their own Welcome Ride activities. Proceeds raised will be used to provide seed grants to churches throughout the state to start new Welcome House ministries.

Last year’s inaugural Welcome Ride raised over $20,000! Our goal is to exceed that in 2021.  Follow Larry and his Welcome Ride team as they bike from the mountains to the capital on CBFNC’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Watch last year’s video announcement about Welcome Ride.
