PARTNERSHIPS + ALLIES
Area churches can partner with Step uP Chattanooga and host Faith & Finances classes on their campus.
One Step up Chattanooga Partner, Hickory Valley Christian Church, has provided great assistance:
They host Step uP Board Meetings
They are the meeting place for most of our classes
The church has provided transportation, childcare, allies, and food
Step uP Board member, Don Hopkins, is an elder at Hickory Valley, and has advertised our Ally training, inviting the whole church. This resulting in a dynamic group representation - the Youth Pastor, two missionaries, allies for our class, and community partnerships
A huge thank you also to St. Elmo, and Brainerd Baptist Church for opening their doors and partnering with us.
Contact us to learn more about how your church can partner with us.
