We are committed to reaching thousands of people across our city through our local church planting strategy. Network churches are sent out by Shoreline across East Tennessee with a joint commitment to the Gospel and yet full freedom to contextualize ministry to their community. These churches are similar in doctrine, governance, and mission. However, it is Jesus that unifies us all. 


Hope Fellowship - East Knoxville

In January of 2016, Shoreline sent out its first church plant to East Knoxville. Hope Fellowship was planted by Dominique Lee with a desire to reach East Knoxville. Hope Fellowship's mission is to communicate the Gospel, to grow through discipleship, to maintain unity through reconciliation, to serve through community outreach, and to reach more people for Christ through multiplication.


Interested In A Church Planting Residency?

We rejoice that God is calling you to plant a church. For more information, visit our Internship & Residency page on how to get started. We'd love for you to be a part of our team and learn with us. All participants will be on the front lines of church planting as they learn more about what it takes to start a new work in a community. This group of residents will also be leading candidates to pastor the various churches that Shoreline will be sending out in the coming years.
