Inner City

in the late 90s, Belmont Church launched Isaiah 58 as the primary ministry to the poor and disenfranchised in Nashville. Through the Isaiah 58 ministry, Belmont is able to extend a lifeline to those with short-term needs, as well as develop long-term relationships with individuals and families trapped in a cycle of poverty. Isaiah 58, with the blessing and continued support of Belmont Church, has launched into their own organization and we continue to team with them to fulfill the important role of social justice in Nashville.

You can learn more about Isaiah 58 @ isa58.org

Some more focused mentoring possibilities exist with our men and women in the Villa and Katherine Homes and prison ministries, please call for more details.

Frequently, former inmates or indigent people find themselves ready for more pervasive support. Our School of Life is comprised of two residential programs The Villa House and The Katherine House. The Villa House for men provides mentoring and structure for individuals committed to establishing themselves as healthy, whole individuals actively involved in employment, community, and a growing relationship with Jesus. We have seen many success stories for those who just need a fresh start. Hope, faith and the truth of living a new life with Jesus is at the forefront of these programs.
