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 2022 (5 and half years later)

God has answered our prayers; we have relocated to the Holiday Inn Express there in Mt Juliet/Providence.

The Tennessee Baptist Mission Board has been so gracious and helpful over the course of the last three years but we have come to the end of our contract.  We knew that the MMC would not be our "forever" home and we doubt that the next move will be either but we look forward to a new place to reach new people with a Gospel that continues to stand the test of time.  

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 or you can email me at and we'll set up a time to visit.
