Authentic Church seeks to establish a healthy, Spirit-filled church in Blount County, TN that fervently prays, hosts God's presence, presents opportunities for people to serve those around them, does life together in community, and pursues unity with other churches in our region.


Authentic Church longs to ignite hearts to burn for God, inspire people to love on their communities, and pursue revival.


  • Establish a prayer movement, "Epicenter," that will gather regularly to cry out for the next great revival and call down Heaven to invade East Tennessee. Train and mobilize prayer groups to strategically target specific geographical landmarks throughout our "territory."

  • Host three informational meetings to share the mission and vision of our current relational network. Build off the relational network that we've established locally and nationally, and prayerfully invite others to join this mission.

  • Expand our current network of Tribes (life groups) and equip them to provide safe places for people to live in Biblical community and deepen their faith. Add additional Tribes in Maryville, Lenoir City, and Oak Ridge. 

  • Partner with local churches and ministries to actively love on our communities. 

  • Plan for the launch of a Sunday morning church gathering and identify a launch date and location.
