The bus transportation ministry has been called one of the greatest tools in the history of the local church. Throughout the country, millions of people have come to church, heard the Gospel preached, and had their lives forever changed. Through our bus transportation ministry, we have seen the powerful, life-changing impact on countless children and youth by making it possible to learn about and experience the love of God through the development of a personal relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.
We provide safe and secure transportation for children and teens, serving the areas of Fairfield Glade, Crab Orchard and Crossville. We would love to have your child join us during any of our weekly services. If you would like your child to start weekly transportation, please contact Jim Coleman at 931-287-0671 or complete the Transportation Permission Form and send to the church office. We will contact you to get your child started!
