CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Next Level Church of Charlotte thinks dads deserve more from church on Father's Day than quiet hymns and a warm handshake. Try chicken wings, one-pound smoked turkey legs, cigars, classic rock music, recliners in the sanctuary, and ESPN on the auditorium lobby monitors.

The church will host dads of all ages on Father's DayJune 20 – for "Ultimate Man Day," an event after each of its two morning worship services. Dads and their families will be able to munch on male-friendly snacks, look at displays of cool cars, motorcycles, and trucks, and purchase quality cigars at discount prices, which they can sample at the church's Fire Pit.

"We're all about connecting people to God and helping people take the next steps in their relationship with Him," says Todd Hahn, the church's Lead Pastor. "And on Father's Day, we want to give a great gift to dads who think God and church are irrelevant to their lives. Being a dad is a tough job and we want to honor dads and show them that there is a God and a church which wants to help them on their journey as a man and a dad."

Just four years old, Next Level Church has grown to nearly 1,000 weekly attenders through its creative worship services which Hahn describes as "equal parts rock concert and coffeehouse" as well as through controversial and innovative outreach methods such as giving away shot glasses in area bars and inviting attenders to use Twitter during Easter services.

Next Level Church is located at 4317 Stevens Mill Road in Matthews and has Sunday service times of 9:30 and 11:00 AM. For general information, see
