OUR VISION

The vision of Two Rivers Church is to multiply healthy churches, leaders, families, local & global impact, and Word & Spirit values.

Throughout the Bible we meet people who stand at diverging paths, then choose the ‘road less traveled.’ We see that the ‘road less traveled’ is walked by people who live in response to God’s leadership. Like individuals, churches have roads to choose too.

Through a season of prayer in seeking God’s leadership for Two Rivers Church, a common theme emerged regarding our purpose and forming our vision as a church: to multiply.

Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on hearth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

The vision of Two Rivers Church in this chapter of our journey is to multiply healthy disciples in 5 specific areas: churches, leaders, families, local & global impact, and Word & Spirit values.

Multiply Healthy Churches

We are called to multiply churches in other communities so that we can take as many people to heaven with us as possible.

So far, we have planted churches in South Florida and Ooltewah, TN.

In addition, in 2017, we planted a new campus in Roane County that is thriving.

 

Multiply Healthy Leaders

We believe multiplying godly leaders is not only essential for the future of Two Rivers Church, but that we are called to raise up leaders to be salt and light in the business community, educational community and local government.

Our partnership with GiantWorldwide® in our Leadership Class has continued to provide leadership equipping insights and tools to those wanting to increase their impact as a leader. This training is practical, biblical and accessible to both Christians and non-Christians alike.

 

Multiply Healthy Families

We are called to equip parents to be the primary disciples in their homes and to pursue health in their marriage.

Marriage Innovators Workshops, for married and pre-married couples, enrich and strengthen marriages with practical and helpful marriage insights through relevant curriculum as well as coaching from our Marriage Mentor Couples.

Multiplying healthy families also involves multiplying confident, capable parents. We do this through classes and groups focused around specific parenting life-stages, such as Making the Most of Kindergarten, Preparing for Middle School, and even when the tables turn, we offer help and support through COAP: Children of Aging Parents.

 

Multiply Impact

The “GO” part of the Great Commission is critical for us. That is why we are committed to multiplying our Gospel impact both locally and globally.

Globally, we have 3 primary focus areas:

  • Sending teams to encourage missionary city teams around the globe, modeling what biblical listening prayer looks like and ministering to tired missionaries.
  • Partnering with church and missionaries in Berlin, Germany, including our own sent family on the team in Berlin, the Burchfields.
  • Continuing our work in Central Latin America, through short-term mission teams sent throughout the year as well as support and encouragement for two of our sent missionaries, Joy Woodie & Katie Begbie, who are working with Doctor Tito and the La Mision Team in medical missions.

Local impact also has 3 focus areas:

  • We continue to partner with Eaton Elementary School through mentorship and food programs.
  • We pray for our communities through annual prayer walks throughout the counties that surround 2RC Knoxville & 2RC Roane County campuses.
  • 2RC Groups are heavily encouraged to find a way each Groups cycle to find an impact opportunity in the community with tools provided on our website to help them find such opportunities.

 

Multiply Word & Spirit Values

We are called to multiply disciples who live by the Word of God and are guided by His Spirit.

Our annual Listen Up Weekend is designed for all believers. The training is designed to teach believers how to:

  • Develop a “listening ear.”
  • Learn how we individually hear since each believer is created uniquely by God.
  • Grow in confidence that what we are hearing is from the Holy Spirit.
  • Respond to the Father’s voice.

Quiet Waters is a bi-annual event, hosting people from around the locally, nationally & internationally, that is a facilitated time designed for the attendees to meet with God and practice hearing from Him in community and personally.

Two Rivers Church hosts & leads an annual EFCA Word & Spirit Learning Group that brings together EFCA pastors for the purpose of mutual encouragement, personal growth, and the sharing of practical insights & tools that connect Biblical truths to best practices, resulting in helping our churches grow in the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

2RC leaders also travel nationally and internationally to partner with and coach both church and country leaders in Word & Spirit values.
