NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Revelation of Christ Church hosted a home buying seminar on Saturday morning.

It took place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the church located at 1473 Remount Road.

Organizers say the event is sponsored by South State Bank and the nonprofit, Partners for a Better Community.

Pastor of Revelations of Christ Church and CEO of the nonprofit, Lance Johnson, says he and his wife aimed to make the home buying process less intimidating.

“The word that our church and our community development is walking into this year is ‘fearless’ in 2020 and beyond," Johnson said. “Home buying can be a very scary process, so we’re trying to take the fear out of that process, put you in a safe place in a save environment so you can purchase and buy.”

Attendees had the chance to meet with South State Bank representatives, realtors and home builders.

Andrea Johnson is the Executive Director for the nonprofit, Partners for a Better Community.

“Making those connections and starting that process will truly increase people’s faith, but also put their words into action and hopefully accomplish what they really want to receive in 2020,” Andrea Johnson said.

Organizers say their vision and mission as a ministry is to help as many people become home buyers this year. They also say people can get assistance with refinancing and remodeling their homes.

The event was free and open to the public.
