Living Hope:Vollintine Evergreen

Vollintine Evergreen, Memphis

A small band of Living Hope families moved to Memphis’ Vollintine Evergreen neighborhood over 7 years ago – 2 years later, a church was established that is still going strong.  Pastor Justin Burkhead leads a multi-ethnic, multi-socioeconomic congregation – a church that reflects God’s heart for all people and demonstrates how the Gospel can bring people together.  Another church gifted us a building in the neighborhood and much ministry takes place there that is a blessing to the entire city. 

Worship at 5pm Sunday; 815 N McLean Blvd, Memphis, 38107

The Common

Beltline/Orange Mound, Memphis

Pastor Broderick Connesero came through Living Hope’s pastoral residency program with a dream to plant a church in Memphis’ Orange Mound neighborhood, where he had already been doing student ministry for years.  The Common seeks to be a place where people can heal from past “church hurt” and discover what it means to live in Gospel-centered community.  They also want to serve the people in their neighborhood, spotlighting the Good News through their good works. 

Worship is Sundays at noon; Cherokee Elementary; 3061 Kimball Ave, Memphis, 38114
For more information contact Broderick  bconnesero@lhchurch.com

Grace City Church

Germantown/East Memphis

Pastors Brandon Brown and Stephen Johnson came through Living Hope’s pastoral residency program and have teamed up to plant a church in Germantown.  They seek to reach the many young families and internationals that are moving to their area.  Suburbs are designed to be a retreat from the world and one unfortunate result of that is that the people living there often find themselves outside of community.  At Grace City connecting people in gospel communities that serve together on mission is a top priority.

Coffee and Community at 9:30am, worship at 10am Sunday
Riverdale Elementary School; 7391 Neshoba Road, Germantown, 38138

River Trace Community Church

River Trace Apartments, Bartlett

Pastor Isaias Uaene is a church planter and trainer of pastors from Mozambique.  In the states getting a degree from Union University, he and his wife Quezia felt led to plant a church in the apartment complex where they live.  It is possibly the most diverse area in our city, with people from Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America, living alongside white and black Memphians. They have a vision for a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic church that is already taking shape. 

Worship at 11am Sunday; 2165 E River Trace Dr, Memphis, 38134
