2329 Prosser Road / Knoxville, TN 37914 9 AM Sunday School / 10:30 AM Worship Gathering


Body Life


The purpose of Berean Bible Church is to glorify God by building up believers
through biblical teaching, passionate worship, effective prayer, and genuine friendships
so that we engage in ministry both inside and outside our church to impact our world for Christ.

CARE GROUPS

A number of years ago, we decided to eliminate corporate worship on Sunday evenings in favor of developing Care Groups. The Care Group ministry of Berean Bible Church is the heart of discipleship and shepherding for our body. We believe that for new believers, and mature believers, the most effective way of growing in a vital relationship with Jesus Christ is to spend time with Him alone and to be with other Christians who are growing as well. Our philosophy of personal discipleship and spiritual shepherding centers around the small group setting because we believe that spiritual change happens best in an atmosphere that is small and close, open and honest, safe and encouraging, with skilled leadership that is willing both to teach and to listen.

MEN

Our men meet together from 6:30-7:30 am on the 3rd Friday of each month for a breakfast fellowship.  You are welcome to join them in the gym commons.  The cost is $4 per person.  We will also offer topical classes (such as “Every Man’s Battle”) at various times for our men, and a men’s retreat typically in the spring.

WOMEN

It is the desire and purpose of our Women’s Ministry to glorify God by loving and serving you well. We endeavor to do this by offering you opportunities to experience the transforming presence of Jesus Christ, by encouraging you to grow in your love for God and for each other, and in equipping you to reach out to a world in need with the love of Christ.

Recent women’s events: Women’s Retreat,  Movie Night, Connect 4 (women’s fellowship groups), and CONNECT (mentoring ministry).
Learn more about opportunities for women here.

 

YOUTH

Transfer is our high school ministry that meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm in the Youth Room (upper level in gym).  This group is led by Jason Moyer, our youth pastor.

Youth Station, led by Nathan McKeehan, is our middle school youth group (6th – 8th grade) and meets in the high school commons area.

Our weekly meeting can include games of all sorts: steal the bacon-ball, mountain ball, “Do you love your neighbor?”, and “amoeba,” to name a few. Nathan McKeehan is our game guru! We have fun just hanging out together, and we have a good time in music and worship as well as a weekly message from God’s Word and prayer. If you are in 6th to 8th grade, YOU ARE INVITED! – and bring a friend!

Both of our youth groups meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm.

CHILDREN

Our aim is the bring the church and home together as partners in nurturing the faith of our children. The church should equip, support, and encourage parents in their vital role. As a church we must be very earnest in our efforts to help our people be courageous parents that love God and love His word by providing resources and support that will help parents raise spiritually healthy children.

PRAYER

A Prayer Chain is in place to relay urgent needs and requests to the Berean body via e-mail. To be included in the chain or to make a prayer request, please contact the church office.

On the first and third Saturday of the month, we gather to pray for missions from 7:00-8:30 am in the pastor’s office. The church body comes together for concerts of prayer for missions during our Missions Conferences held twice each year.

The pastoral staff and others meet for prayer each Tuesday from 10 am – 1 pm in the pastor’s office.

MISSIONS & OUTREACH

The purpose of missions at Berean Bible Church is to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ.

Matthew 28:19-20 – “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

We do this through home (U.S.) missions, foreign missions, short-term missions, and local outreach.
