Local Missions

We believe that every Christian/church member is to be ON MISSION WITH GOD (a missionary) with the WORLD as our mission field. Our world extends from our front door to the farthest corner of the earth.  Local missions, our front door, are those activities and endeavors which take place within a commutable distance of Knoxville, places one could serve without having to spend the night. Many of the local mission efforts in the our area are listed below.  You can be involved!
