Serving the Church, Community, and World
The basis for the missional discipleship at Westminster is found in Mark 12:31, “The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” We strive to meet our neighbors where they are, and find neighbors locally, regional, and in other countries. We extend the hand of friendship and fellowship in doing the work of Christ in the world. Our efforts are centered on the fundamentals of life: food, clean drinking water, adequate shelter, basic medical care, and the like.
We find our neighbors in local homeless shelters, area prisons, Knoxville neighborhoods, Southern Appalachia, as well as the Dominican Republic and Peru. We don’t just send money where our hearts are, we use our financial resources to supplement where our hands are.
We welcome you to join us as we work with our neighbors to find solutions for problems in our world today.
