How It All Began...
We were looking into developing 56 acres into a subdivision. This development was going to be called Serenity Pointe. Then in the middle of night, the Lord woke me up with His soft powerful voice, like He often does. He told me that Serenity Pointe would not be a subdivision, but a work for Him. I had no details at the time, but only knew God had other plans. For the next two years we lived life normally. We worked a regular jobs day after day carrying on with life. I recall talking about how that someday we would work for the Lord, but that is all we did. Talk!
Then life changed suddenly. We were living in Chattanooga and within 30 days our home had sold, and we moved to Dunlap!
In the stillness of small town living, the Lord got my attention, and I knew it was time to do more than talk! In the spring of 2008, we formed the 501(c)3, and I quit my job. Faith is what I stood on. I remembered what the Lord had said that night two years ago, and the time of action was now! By June, tragedy had struck my sister had passed away. It was then, at my sister's funeral, that the Lord spoke again.
I saw a man under a tree, and immediately I heard that distinct, soft, but yet so powerful voice rise up and say, "He is homeless. Take him home". Even though I knew it was the Lord, an immediate battle began within my mind. I thought to myself, "Oh no! How do I explain that I am to take this stranger with me?" Then suddenly the boldness of the Holy Spirit came upon me. And I obeyed.
After a few weeks I was able to get him settled into a home he could live in. The very day he was leaving, the Department of Children Services called. We were informed that they had a homeless mother and daughter that needed help immediately. For the next 18 months many more came to live with us in our home. What a journey!
The past seven years, with the help of the Lord and so many caring people we have helped over 40,788 people by housing, clothing, feeding, sending them to long term rehabs, anger management courses, addiction recovery, domestic violence courses, and aiding babies in crisis. What has been and will be done is not by our own merits, but by the Grace of God, the volunteers sent by God, and the employees established by God!
After all these years we have come to understand that there are a lot of good people working in rural TN trying to make a difference but have no money. We now raise money at our thrift stores and fund different programs in seven counties who service twelve counties in rural TN. We fund programs who service Bledsoe, Cumberland, DeKalb, Grundy, Marion, Putnam, Rhea, Sequatchee, Sevier, Warren, White, and Van Buren Counties.
The Lord tells us in Isaiah 1:19, "If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land..."
He is looking for obedience, not equipped, but willing. If He can use a Realtor and a Builder; He can use you. It has been harder on our journey than we thought, but worth every step and struggle. Please read the Second Chance Stories for yourself. Hopefully through them you can see the joy and happiness we have in being a small part in God's plan to help people!
The journey is awesome! We'd like you to join us.

Our Core Beliefs
Our Mission Statement
 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment.  And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed;
 Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor.
 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up.
 Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be heard.
