Knoxville Campus

Jim Powell
Lead Pastor

Welcome to Knoxville Campus! We’re located in a repurposed retail building that we took a leap of faith to purchase in 2007. But don’t let the outside fool you. We are a warm, vibrant church, where people from all walks of life come to learn about God’s love for them and the plan He has for their lives.

You don’t have to dress up to join us—on the inside or the outside. Our service times are Saturday night at 5pm and Sunday morning at 9am and 11am. We also have safe, engaging children’s and youth ministries, small groups, and many opportunities for spiritual growth and service.

Please join us this weekend! Come early to have coffee, a snack, and conversation in our Commons. And if you’re running late, feel free to bring your coffee into service. We want you to feel at home because home is what a church should be.

What’s happening at Knoxville Campus?


GroupLife is for people to connect with Christ and other believers in open, authentic relationships. In the midst of those relationships, we grow stronger in our faith and learn to better love one another. There are a wide variety of opportunities to interact for men, women and couples. We would love to help you get involved!



Pick a campus.

As a multisite church you have a choice of where and when attend Richwoods. Some pick a campus based on geography, others based on relationships, whatever your reason it doesn’t really matter—you get to choose! Try one and stay or try them all.

Show up early for breakfast.

Believe it or not, it’s pretty common for Richwoods’ regulars. Each of our campuses has a “Common” area for people to connect with each other and enjoy some locally roasted, fresh brewed coffee and amazing donuts, (or cookies and popcorn if you prefer Saturday Night). Point is, the people of Richwoods love to hang out and chat with each other, so, show up early and join us for breakfast.

Don't be shy.

There are not too many things more awkward than visiting a church for the first time. We know this first hand and we want to encourage you to not be shy when you visit us for the first time. In each of our Commons we have a place called the “Connection Point.” It’s staffed with real people just like you, no sales staff or assimilation ninjas, just real people who love Richwoods and want to help you discover us as a church. So, don’t be shy—head on over to the Connection Point and introduce yourself, we might even put a travel mug in your hand just for the effort.

Get engaged.

You’ve made it this far, therefore we will assume you’ve moved beyond the curiosity stage and are ready to call Richwoods your home church!

We are a church with almost endless opportunities to get involved.  It takes over 400 people laughing and working together to provide weekend services and ministry through out the week.  We’d love to get you involved in a ministry best suiting your passion and gifts.
