Hope Communities

We gather in small communities throughout the week in homes around Knoxville. In these communities, we share meals, discuss and respond to God’s Word, and bless our neighborhoods together. Whether you are looking to connect with others, grow in your understanding of the Bible, serve your neighborhood, or all three, we want to help you get connected into a Hope Community! In fact, we believe that these communities are the most important thing we do! It is in these communities that you will find rest, find hope, and find purpose.

Hope Gatherings

We gather on the first and third Sundays of every month at 6PM for Biblical teaching, worship and prayer, and sharing stories about how God is at work in people’s lives. This is a time to come together as one family. Through these gatherings, we desire to experience renewal in each of our lives, and as a result, see renewal in our neighborhoods and our city.

Church Planting residency

We believe that starting new local churches is the best way to join Jesus in what he is doing in the world. That is why we are committed to being a church that starts other churches. We want to raise up and send out leaders and teams to plant other churches in Knoxville and around the world. We have partnered with Converge MidAmerica and Forge Knoxville to develop a two-year residency program for individuals who feel called to plant a church.
