Working Together

KIN began in 2010 when a group of believers involved in ministry among internationals in Knoxville gathered to discuss how they could work together to make a difference in our city.


As a result, KIN was born and launched a series of community meetings to raise awareness of the needs among internationals and give ministries, churches, non-profits and other organizations a forum to connect and share information and resources.


The beauty of KIN is found not only in the opportunity of Knoxville believers to better work together, but in the tapestry of intercultural relationships that have been formed.


  • Churches, nonprofits and community organizations are linked in a robust network that multiplies the impact, efficacy and sustainability of their work.

  • Ministry leaders and volunteers are encouraged as they share information, identify and address gaps, obtain training, coordinate initiatives, and foster relationships of mutual support.

  • God is glorified as thriving intercultural partnerships in the body of Christ pursue a common vision.
