We are a network of Roane County churches, businesses, and community leaders working to bring people from every sphere of influence together to create initiatives for spiritual and social transformation.
Through praying, serving, sharing, and collaborating, our partners work together as we trust God to build a community where everyone can thrive.
We unite the church to engage the community, so everyone thrives.
No one going to bed hungry tonight, and everyone moving toward a self-sustaining future.
Everyone moving through addiction and mental health challenges in order to live fruitful lives.
Every child surrounded by loving parents or guardians. No person abused, trafficked, or exploited.
Every young adult graduating from high school ready to live the life they were created to live.
Every person discovering victory in Christ, and thriving in a healthy church family.
Roane for All embraces the historic, orthodox documents of the church known as the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed. We also leverage the Lausanne Covenant for how we help churches partner around church multiplication. Our theological distinctives listed below act as an anchor to give clarity for who we are and motivate our work.
Roane for All has established a steering team comprised of local pastors and community leaders, and currently includes the following:
Mike McElhinney | Treasurer
Phillip Merrill | President
Kathleen Cherry | Treasurer
Our Steering Team is praying together and developing a framework for this collective impact initiative. In the early stages of this work, we will be assessing the community needs, identifying existing resources, and convening pastors and community leaders to determine short- and long-term strategic initiatives.
We are a development organization with the intent of mobilizing practical help now, as well as affecting change in social structures that will allow the next generation to thrive.
