The mission of Family Promise of Knoxville is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.
The cornerstone of Family Promise of Knoxville is our interfaith network of 16 “host” congregations and 24 “support” congregations. This congregational network is unique because it serves homeless families within the walls of places of worship, it focuses on providing a safe place for children and their families to sleep, and it is lay-driven by volunteers.

As a partner in ministry, we support Western Heights Baptist Center in their efforts to feed, clothe, and meet the spiritual needs of those in the Western Heights Community.
Every couple of months our church provides lunch for the Wednesday Bible Study group. If you would like to be involved with this ministry, contact Scarlett.
Lost Sheep Ministries is an organization that seeks to serve the homeless population of Knoxville. They do this in numerous ways including serving meals “under the bridge” each week, providing addiction rehabilitation services, and coordinating assistance from the local church. By doing this, they are sharing the Gospel message through word and action. Each time we go “under the bridge” we leave at 5:30 p.m.
