We have moved all offices downstairs in preparation for the renovations to the upstairs. If you are coming to the office please drive around back to park and enter the building.

North Carolina Missions Offering

NCMO is a special offering received during the month of September that supports the ministries of Baptists on Mission, Church Planting, mission camps, associational projects and mobilization ministry projects. NCMO is your opportunity to be on mission together as God accomplishes many wonderful things through these various ministries. 17.5% of this offering comes back to Cleveland County, to support GCCBA and Shelby Mission Camp.

“Relief for today. Hope for tomorrow.” Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (HCSB)

Winshape Camp  

Our county has been presented with a possible unique opportunity to host a Winshape Children’s Camp in the Summer of 2024. Winshape is part of the ministry arm of Chic Fil A. If we are able to host a camp in Cleveland County this would give us a wonderful opportunity to serve children who may never get to experience a Christian summer camp. In order for this to come about we are putting together a WInshape Committee that will    work to bring this vision to life. If you are interested in participating or have questions please contact Katie. For more information about Winshape visit their website at
