On Sunday mornings at 10 AM, our students take the time to focus on connecting their worlds to see how we as a ministry can connect with the community around us. By connecting this way, students are able to help encourage each other and live life together.


We want to see our students grow through biblical discussion and times of sharing. We engage in conversations to challenge our thoughts and to grow our hearts by the way of the Holy Spirit.


We love to learn and grow in our relationship with Christ, but we also enjoy being together with friends. This is a ministry that is welcoming to everyone, regardless of background. Because all are welcome in the presence of Christ, so also all are welcome in our ministry.


Serving others is central to the heart of God. Jesus said that he came to serve rather than be served. Because Jesus set this example, we also show up to serve, not be served. We are willing to help in whatever way we can.


On Wednesday Nights at 6:15 p.m. our students are encouraged and poured into by the leaders of the FUSE Student Ministry. This is a time where we figure out how to walk with Christ through all seasons of life.


Worship is what our entire lives are meant to be about. We desire to meet God through our conversations, music, art, activities, prayers, and fellowship. We want to experience the fullness of the presence of God, no matter how that comes about.

“FUSE is a place where students (middle-school to college) can grow in relationship with each other, participate in worship and service opportunities, and develop lifelong skills for a deeper and wider relationship with Jesus. We want to connect with people in a time of fellowship and community. Here at FUSE, we live life together by encouraging one another, having respect and compassion for one another, and seeking to serve one another in love. We also believe strongly in serving the larger Knoxville community in many capacities. We want to change the world in the way we love God and love the people in our communities.” -- Dylan Wilson, Director of Student and Young Adult Ministries
