We invite you to join us in prayer as we continue to pursue the vision to Multiply followers of Jesus by launching a new campus in the Bearden/Rocky Hill area of West Knoxville. The following are two major areas of prayer emphasis:
Core Team – As the formation of our core leadership team is underway, please pray that God would make it clear to those who are considering being a part of this exciting new adventure of launching a new campus. Pray also for God’s provision for key leaders to rise up for every area of ministry.
Location – As we have begun our site selection search, please join us in praying that God would provide the right facility in the place for maximum impact.
Pray for faith in God, that He will provide all our needs.

“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:1-5
Pray for unity & protection for our congregation.
“…eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3

“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:9-11
Pray for all to choose joy in this time of transition.
