Meet the Team
First Christian Church Harriman
JESUS IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH.
WE’RE ONE unified TEAM.
Under Jesus, this group of believers is led by a team of elders. They’re men elected by the congregation because their walk matches their talk. Elders are shepherds of the flock, guiding them, protecting them, and nourishing them.
You might notice that other than Jesus, there is no one person in charge. Instead, we share responsibility, a mutual calling, and the same Spirit.
We are serious about being the Church of Jesus Christ to Harriman, Tennessee and we are very involved in our community.
We serve hundreds of families in our community every month in our food pantry called Feeding Roane food pantry by First Christian Church. We hand out thousands of pounds of groceries every Friday from 12pm-1pm and we provide everyone with a hot meal as well.
We raise money to fulfill the calling of Jesus to feed the hungry, by maintaining and operating a business called the Treasure Hunt of Tennessee. This business offers amazing deals on merchandise and deeply discounted groceries, and it also employs many people and is just another way we serve our community.
We have plans in the very near future of opening a school, a hotel, starting a celebratory recovery program and a jail ministry. We are just waiting for God to bring us the people who are passionate and equipped for these ministries.
If you feel called to serve, we will be glad to have you join us as we share the hope of Jesus with our community.
