Celebration of Hope


This event will bring together hundreds of business leaders, community leaders, and faithful supporters from across Middle Tennessee to support the Mission’s efforts in providing hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity to the hungry, homeless, and hurting in our community.


2018 Guest Speaker

Norman went from being addicted to drugs, incarcerated, and a member of a prison gang, to now being happily married, gainfully employed, and an active member in his church and community. His heart to help and serve others is undeniable. At the Celebration of Hope Luncheon, you’ll hear how God’s love and grace radically transformed this 2016 graduate of the Mission’s Life Recovery Program.
