The Pastor

Mission:
Our mission is to unify the Middle Tennessee Community through the Love of Jesus Christ and through the power of his mercy and grace to eradicate all things (racism, hunger, poverty, hopelessness, bigotry, self-hate, guilt & shame) that separates us from the love of God and each other.

Goal:
As Christ's disciples, we believe that the power of God is given to us to change the community for the better (peace, hope, self-love,housing, employment, education, healthcare, equality) one person at a time through acts of love, kindness and service.  We achieve this mission because we are God's agents of change in our family, on our jobs, in our schools and in the community at-large.

Every week we teach and train men, women and children how to use the power of God to achieve excellence and fulfillment in their life and avoid self-destructive behavior so that they may touch and teach others to do the same.

Over the past three years, we have fed and clothed over 2,000 men, women and children through our weekly outreach ministry.  We have assisted over 70 families obtain permanent housing and leave the homeless shelters to their own.  We have assistsed over 250 men and women find jobs and receive their GED.  We have helped over 50 men transistion from prisons back into society  by offering assistance in getting state-issued identification cards, job training, housing, and clothing.

We provide a Summer Enrichment Program for children between the ages of 3 to 16 to teach them self-esteem, career opportunities, character, math, reading & science, the value of education, respect for others and being a productive citizen.
