Nashville’s population is ever changing. In fact many mission agencies say that America is fourth on the list with the most unreached people groups. This means that America contains many groups of people from all over the world who are less than two percent Christian. Many communities around our city are welcoming people from all over the world. Many of these people are new to America and new to the gospel. We want to walk alongside the nations that live among us, and be the church who shows hospitality to the outsider. Will you join us?
