The Charlotte Eagles have infiltrated the inner city's fragmented communities through the sport of soccer and a program called the Urban Eagles. Players and staff live in some of the poorest, most dangerous neighborhoods in Charlotte and disciple young men in hopes of bringing holistic (spirit, soul, and body) change to entire communities through the love of Jesus.
The core values of Urban Eagles are:
- LOVE is our motivation
- DISCIPLESHIP is our method
- EMPOWERMENT is our goal
Although the professional team will no longer compete, Rikkos continues to support the inner city ministry by provides snacks for the Urban Eagles monthly tournaments, provided a soccer ball for each of the boys that attended yearly summer camp, and supports the mission financially.
Founded in 2014 by twins with the same passion for showing love to others, Love's Bloom is all about helping those that do not have a voice to ask for help.
"Love is a significant part of our purpose. We want to connect with women who are overcoming poverty and injustice with Love. We want to connect men who are overcoming poverty and injustice with Love. We want to connect children who are overcoming poverty and injustice with Love."
The vision of Love's Bloom is to Love a person through temporary financial help, so they can get motivated and encouraged to live and enjoy life.
