Who We Are

Redemption to the Nations Church

History

Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

In 2003 starting at Mountain Meadows Church of God in Ooltewah in one building with 34 people, the Lord began to multiply. Plans for the gym were drafted to give the congregation a fellowship space but was repurposed as a sanctuary space and opened for multiple services after an explosion of growth. Even then, Pastor Kevin would declare lack is not our problem. Our community was being blessed time and time again with food and clothing ministries, Thanksgiving boxes and the beginning of the Magi Project. Pastor Deven birthed The Zion Project to rescue girls from human trafficking locally and internationally. Families and new converts continued to make Mountain Meadows their home. 2010 was a banner year: the Lord lead us to change our name to share our vision: to be the most loving church in America. We became Redemption Point Church. We added the final building with a state-of-the-art children’s facility to the Ooltewah campus, and added our first downtown campus at 4th Avenue and soon transferred to East Lake. Pastors Kevin and Deven had dreams of taking the money spent on our church mortgage and sowing into missions like never before. God provided a financial miracle of $4 million to pay off our debt, renovate the original Ooltewah sanctuary into the Hub for student ministry and connection, and allow us to reach the nations, care for orphans, build churches in unchurched nations and equip pastors for the work of the ministry. Redemption Point’s reach stretched to Guatemala and Uruguay, fulfilling our purpose to be extend the kingdom of God on earth.
In 2013, the purchase of the Highland Park Baptist Church and Tennessee Temple University campus made it possible for the Redemption Point family to have a presence in the downtown Chattanooga community, fulfilling the dream that God gave Pastor Kevin as a teenager. He knew that he would pastor a church in the inner city of Chattanooga. At our very first conference for Forge young adults, God poured out His Spirit and we moved into 90 days of Times of Refreshing. People were saved, healed, delivered, set free and baptized testifying of fresh life in Christ. Under the leadership of Pastors Kevin and Deven, we have seen God dynamically move in Mom’s Awakening, Take the Land, Women of Fire, and Ruach conferences. The volunteer power of our church is unmatched. The faithful involved in the work in these conferences in addition to weekly ministries like First Impressions, Production, Firebrand, His Disciples, His Little Disciples, Prayer Ministry and more, this is only made possible by the 300 plus volunteers that seek to love God and love others. Our footprint with missions, the Zion Project, livestream, social media and special television appearances has spanned the globe. Most recently with the launch of Redemption School of Ministry, Redemption Kids School of Ministry, and Redemption Preschool, we are educating and releasing this generation and the next into their calling and purpose in the earth for such a time as this. Church, this is just the beginning. We are here today as one body in one accord to celebrate what God has done and rejoice in what He has in store for our future. We will give him praise for the marvelous things He has done and the wonders He has yet to do among us.
