These are exciting days for Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes. After 123 years of success in providing residential care, God is calling us into a deeper season of ministry as we expand into the creation of a statewide foster care network. I’ve never been more confident in the direction that the TBCH ministry is moving!
On November 6, 2013, Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes signed a no-cost contract with the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services to provide Foster Care (Resource) Homes for the State. This new opportunity further expands TBCH’s role in “ministering the love of Jesus Christ to children and families in crisis.”
In addition, we have the rare opportunity to revamp our existing residential program with updated technology, renovated facilities, and a heavier focus on development for our current and future initiatives. As we all know, with such an incredible opportunity comes an equally incredible need.
Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes has never accepted government funding. This has been possible due to the faithful support of individuals and Tennessee’s Baptist churches. As we seek to broaden our ministry to children, we must also broaden our support base among churches, individuals, and organizations. This requires two things from those who feel called to the mission of TBCH: faith and sacrifice. We are conducting a three-year capital campaign raising $5.2 million for the aforementioned initiatives.
It’s through prayer and sacrifice that we experience spiritual growth. We want the single motivation for our gifts and sacrifices to be at the direction of Jesus Christ. Would you be willing to prayerfully consider how you can be a part of changing the lives of at-risk children all across Tennessee?Download the IMPACT Campaign Journey Guide
We’re waiting with great anticipation to see how the Lord moves through His people and how he continues to grow this 123 year old ministry for His kingdom.
