The culture of Faith Promise stands out among churches as raw and authentic. Their down-to-earth style and approach to ministry are refreshing. This incredible staff team knows how to have fun together and they’re also driven by a clear sense of mission and calling!
Faith Promise has a massive impact on East Tennessee with over 7,000 people worshiping together each week at six locations throughout the region. In 1996, Pastor Chris Stephens became the lead pastor of this incredible community and through his passionate heart for the lost, the church has seen exponential growth and impact.
Faith Promise is a place where those far from Christ experience love and acceptance. It’s electric with excitement and authenticity. The church and leadership are real people and create an environment of open arms to all and a high level of challenge to the mission of the Church. At Faith Promise, you can come as you are, but you can’t stay that way.
The Blount Campus is located south of Knoxville in Maryville, TN in Blount County. The campus was launched out of the Pellissippi Campus in 2010 and currently, just over 1,000 people worship at this location with around 200 kids each week.
fpKids is the remarkable children’s ministry at Faith Promise. Every week across all campuses there are almost 1,500 kids that experience God in a new way through the dynamic experiences for each age group. fpKids uses Orange curriculum and strategy for all age groups in a large group/small group format focused on the importance of relationships with each other and small group leaders.
With a multi-site model of ministry, Faith Promise has a clear and robust structure and systems of support for all campuses. Every campus Children’s Pastor focuses on building teams of people and developing leaders while the central ministries support team supplies and the curriculum logistics.
This will be the first time the Blount Campus has had a full-time Children’s Pastor. Up to this point, they have had two part-time leaders giving oversite to the ministry. There is a key component of leadership and vision casting in fpKids and Blount. A roll-up-the-sleeves and get-it-done attitude is a must.
The Blount Campus needs a strong team builder who can recruit and develop a strong team in all areas of fpKids. Volunteerism is a huge value at Faith Promise and people are encouraged to serve.
