Why Chattanooga?

With 418 Evangelical Protestant Churches in this beautiful southern city, many have said that Chattanooga may be the buckle of the so-called Bible Belt. However, with over 40% of Chattanooga’s 176,000 residents claiming no religious affiliation, a poverty rate of around 22%, and more than eight major ethnic groups residing within the city, Chattanooga has become a hub city when speaking in terms of missions. The opportunities are endless for ethnic church planting, evangelism, and outreach. If we don’t capitalize on the opportunity that God has given to us to engage the mission field at our doorstep, Chattanooga will continue on its path to become one of the South’s most spiritually lost cities.
