Local Evangelism and Compassion

  • We desire to impact our own local communities, wherever we may live, with special focus on the Madison area of North Nashville. While long-term relationships are essential in bearing witness to the Gospel, God has also used meetings with strangers who "happened to be there" (Acts 17:17) to present the Gospel.
  • For this reason, we want to train and plan for evangelism that engages people we meet on a daily basis. We also desire to create relationships in our neighborhoods to strengthen Christians in the Gospel and reach the lost. This is a part of loving our neighbor as ourselves. 
  • We consider it a great privilege to come alongside brothers and sisters in established works that are already serving our community. Some of those ministries have included The Nashville Rescue Mission, Rescue 1 Global and Cottage Cove Urban Ministries. For further information about service opportunities in conjunction with each of these organizations, please visit their websites or shoot us an email! We would love to get you connected. 

  • Nashville Rescue Mission

    The Nashville Rescue Mission serves "the least of these" in the Nashville area in two primary ways: 1) by providing emergency services including hot meals, shelter for the homeless and battered and case management for those seeking permanent housing and employment 2) Life Recovery Program, a Gospel-centered, heart-oriented, addiction rehabilitation program.

  • Rescue 1 Global

    Rescue 1 Global is a 21st century abolitionist movement combatting slavery and human trafficking on a global scale by educating and mobilizing communities toward the prevention, rescue, and restoration of the vulnerable, victimized, and vagabond.
