COVID-19 Statement

We’re hard at work on the solutions our worldwide partners need to spread the gospel, but as a precaution—due to the current COVID-19 outbreak—we’ve made a number of changes at our campus in Waxhaw, North Carolina.

We appreciate your understanding as we work together to pursue our mission, serve our partners, and protect the health of our community (and yours!). Currently:

  • Campus tours are now available for groups of 9 or less. Reservations are required. Please call 704.843.6130 and leave a message.
  • The JAARS Gift Shop is now open Monday-Friday, 11:30 am-1:30 pm.
  • The Museum of the Alphabet is reopening to the public on Saturday, April 17! Please stop by to see our new and updated exhibits. Guided and group tours are not available at this time, but we have a new cell phone tour to guide you through the museum. Face masks and social distancing are required. The museum is sanitized frequently.
  • We are hosting some events, modified for COVID-19 restrictions. Visit each event page for more details.
