Bringing Change to a City

 

We seek to be part of positive change in our city. We want to do our part to help end homelessness, poverty, human trafficking, joblessness. We look for opportunities to employ people who are serious about success, who have experience hardship and even crisis in their lives. We aren't their destination, but we certainly want to be a key stop on their pathway to success. We also want to partner with non-profit organizations in our city that are addressing these issues, to encourage and empower them to continue bringing change.

Here are a few we work with:

 
 

second life Tennessee 

Second Life Tennessee began as an unexpected conversation between two friends in 2007.  Over time this conversation grew into the development of the organizational commitment to not only fight human trafficking, but to be a part of the movement that will bring about the end of the crime in the U.S. From their beginning, they have been a partnership-driven organization, realizing that collaboration is central to the success of their cause.

The House exists to bring college students to a deeper knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. They accomplish this in partnership with the local church and hundreds of individuals who want our next generation of leaders to be known and know Jesus.  Within the community of The House you will find residence houses, a coffee shop, retreats, missions, small group Bible studies, and a whole host of other events, but most students first encounter ministry of The House through a friend inviting them to Tuesday Night Worship.

They have people from every walk of life . . . rich, poor, homeless, moms, dads, kids, grandparents.
