“Our focus is not to build a church, but to make disciples who impact their own communities outside the four walls of the church.” – Pastor Jim Wilkes

My name is Charron Alexandria Leeper - Martin and I have decided to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in order to support the effort in building the Cleveland Hope Center and to give over 10,000 people the only hope that comes through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I decided to climb because I believe in the vision written above by my Pastor Jim Wilkes but more importantly Christ's mission for the Church to make disciples of all nations. I know that the resources used from this climb to build the Cleveland hope Center will be a immense step forward towards fulfilling that mission in Cleveland and beyond.


More personally, climbing this mountain symbolizes for me overcoming every obstacle and fear of my past that has kept me from my best in Christ. It also symbolizes conquering every adversity that may come my way in the future. When I reach the top of this mountain, I am believing God for clarity and vision. I am believing that as I pour out my heart to him with every step, every moment of fatigue and every point of weakness that he will meet me there, just like he promises to do in his word (Philippians 4:19). I am climbing this mountain for my future. Claiming victory for my life, my husband and my roll as a wife and future mother. I am claiming every promise that God has spoken over my life known and unknown to me and believing it to come to pass in my life with every breath. I am climbing for the chains of every curse spoken over my life to falls off. I am climbing for the future generations of my family line to be blessed and to call on the name of the Lord as their God and savior. Moreover, I am climbing to overcome the strong hold of fear. Am I afraid to do this? Yes. Do I hate bugs? Yes. Am I a germaphobe and the very thought of not being able to take a shower or wash my hands with water for more than 3 days evoke the STRONG desire in me to roll into the fetal position? Absolutely!! However I cannot let that stop me, just like I cannot let anything in life stop me from Gods best for me. 

People need hope and I want to be apart of providing that opportunity to people who need it. To have the opportunity to know Christ is the only hope that I have found and to know him is to truly live. Please support me in this mission to reach 10,000 people for Christ and to build the Cleveland Hope Center through this life changing experience.

"Every number has a name, every name has a story, and every story matters to God." - Pastor Jim Wilkes.
