It all started June 1, 2016

After months of prayer and three vision meetings in March, April and May, The 318 Fellowship met for the very first time on June 1, 2016  in the conference room of Hampton Inn in the Providence Marketplace.  Centered in the middle of Wilson County and the City of Mt Juliet, overlooking Providence Marketplace, we pray that the Lord will use us to build relationships in an effort to introduce people there to a profound and life changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Randy Davis, the Executive Director of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, once said, "If all the people in Wilson County decided to go to church there would not be enough seats to hold them in the churches that presently exist." Thus, there has to be a movement of new churches and new visions that God can use to reach new people. At the same time, the neighborhoods of Mt Juliet and the surrounding area are filled with people who know the Lord but find themselves searching for a place of service and community, a new place to connect.

We know that we are not the only church in town and by no means do we think we are the best; we just believe that God has placed us here for a specific reason to reach a specific people with a very specific vision.   What started with 8 people has now grown to 73.  God has blessed and challenged and continued to tweak who we are and where we are headed.  It's not always been a easy journey but we have learned together that God has a beautiful plan in the valleys, the mountains and in between.

And now its 2020 (3 and half years later)

Our year started out with a bang!!! New Student Pastor, John Michael Donnell and new Little Director, Nicole Stover, joined us in January and have already started to see God move among our littlest kidz, our preteens and our students.

We recruited another 318 people to join us in prayer from around the country and are so grateful as the Lord has continued to answer our prayers with new families and influence.  We took the net step with our LIVE production each Sunday morning by starting watch parties which has increased our viewing community from 4 or 5 to 15 or 20.  

I know that the first time somewhere can be a little daunting so go ahead and check out one of our MESSAGES and the CONNECTING TO OUR PEOPLE to see just a few photos of faces and events.

If you are looking for a church home, consider stopping by one Sunday for a cup of coffee and church.
