Victory Groups (follow link for more details) are the “heart” of our church and the importance of our groups cannot be overemphasized. They provide a place to connect with others in the church in a way that cannot be found during our Sunday services. Much more than a weekly Bible study, the Victory Groups create an “extended family” atmosphere. Here, relationships run deep and meaningful friendships are made. As they meet, there are opportunities to ask questions, to discuss, to laugh, to cry, and to pray with each other in a safe, non-threatening, informal atmosphere. Victory Groups are more than just an activity. They are a vital part of the family environment of the Knoxville Christian Center.

Victory Groups also serve as an evangelistic mission for new people to be invited and won to Christ. Hundreds have shared how Victory Groups have blessed their lives. People have been healed, delivered, set free and have seen miraculous changes in their lives through the ministry of these groups.

Led by mature and trained KCC leaders, each group consists of eight to twenty Christians who meet every Wednesday at 7:00pm in host homes. Once you have visited a Victory group – you will feel connected to our loving church family.

Evangelism Ministry

Heaven and Hell are eternal. As Christians, we need to prioritize our lives by putting Jesus at the top of our list. We are all called to spread the living Word of God in our daily walk, and to be a guiding light in a dark world. People are being deceived daily and are moving further and further away from Jesus. We are called to a higher calling, an eternal calling to love thy neighbor as thyself. We must be ready to hear from the Holy Spirit at all times.

Acts 13:47 RSV “For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, ‘I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.'”
Matthew 5:14-15 RSV  “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.”
Luke 4:18-19 RSV The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

The Evangelism Ministry meets on the 2nd Saturday of the month at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary for praise, worship, and prayer. Around 11 AM we go to visit our neighbors living near the church, giving the message: Jesus loves you and He has not forgotten you. We offer prayer, invitations to church, and hand out sermon CDs. We return between 12-12:30 PM.

We feel this is an important part of the Daily Christian walk. If you are interested or want to learn more, please call or text Matt Tarrant at 865-803-8253.  You can also call the church office at 865-690-0855 for information or prayer.
