As a downtown congregation, we believe God has called us to reach out into the surrounding community and support Nashville’s most vulnerable and marginalized residents.
Addressing the needs of those struggling to live with burdens such as urban poverty, homelessness, addiction & domestic abuse is best achieved by partnering with dedicated organizations who have built up expertise and effectiveness in their given field.
Our partner organizations have a proven track record and we have been supporting them through financial contributions, fundraising events and volunteers for many years.
