Hope Central emphasizes prayer, not only with staff and volunteers, but also with the people connected to Hope Central. Keeping Christ and prayer at the forefront of each interaction is of utmost importance. Additionally, having a consistent presence in the neighborhood and a close proximity to the lives of people that are served is vital to the ongoing Kingdom mission of spreading God’s word. Hope Central finds that partnering with churches and volunteers in the Knoxville area enriches the lives of all involved in the ministry.



Hope Central strives to help each person connected to the organization to know their inherent value, to know that they are loved by God, and to feel connected to caring neighbors.
