About My Family

Charlie Dunn is the pastor of Hub Church Boston, a relatively new network of communities that are finding freedom and family through faith in Jesus. Hub Church is located in the three and one-half square mile, 60,000 person neighborhood of South Boston, Mass. ("Southie"). Charlie and his wife, Abby, married in July 2005 and have three amazing daughters: Brooklyn, Ezri and Charley. Both Charlie and Abby hold bachelor's degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and master's degrees from Southeastern Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (MAT) respectively. Charlie has worked in vocational ministry in both large and small churches. He enjoys reading, a good cup of coffee, sports and has a passion for seeing everyday people live as family in the freedom of Christ!

About My Church Plant

In late 2013, a group of families and young professionals prayerfully relocated to one of Boston’s most historic, influential and rapidly-growing neighborhoods—South Boston. The strategic nature of the neighborhood, the strong sense of community present there and a desire to see the good news of Jesus come alive in "Southie," helped drive the relocation.
When God called these families and individuals, the call came with an expectation that growth would be slow and deeply relational. By 2015 the original community had grown and multiplied into what we now call missional families. In mid-September 2015, Hub Church launched its first weekly Sunday gathering with the formal commissioning of two missional families. Our passion is inviting others to find freedom and family through faith in Jesus along with us!

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


For God to provide funding to pay off renovations done to procure long-term housing for the Dunn family. For God to be glorified through disciples who can make disciples as people are invited into the the freedom and family of Jesus. For missional leaders to be raised up. For missional families to be formed and commissioned.


Join or come help launch a missional family in our neighborhood or city. Send a short-term missions team to serve our church, neighborhood and city during "Serve Southie" each summer. Connect us with other churches interested in launching missional families or a Supporting Church that is.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
