There are over 2 billion people in this world that are
considered "unreached." In
Matthew 28, Jesus commanded us to go to the nations with His Gospel. Park West Church regularly has many members
that go out into all the world on foreign mission trips.
have partnered with Global Infusion, a missions ministry run by our
missions Pastor, Jonathan Haward, that sends short-term teams out to
more than a dozen different countries all throughout the year. There
are adult, youth, family, and multi-generational trips available. If
you are interested in joining a Park West mission team, please contact
Pastor Jonathan directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Global Infusion is a pathway to the mission field. We focus on organizing, developing, and sending mission teams and long-term missionaries around the world.
Established in 2003, Global Infusion is an international missions
organization that seeks to become a catalyst of healing, in a culturally
sensitive manner, for every degree of human need: physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual.
We focus on those who cannot provide or attain these things
adequately enough for themselves. We work to strengthen and empower the
leaders in these nations who have both a heart, and a strategy for
helping and reaching their own people.
We are looking for people whom God has called long-term to the mission field. To prepare you, we have established our Infusion Academy: a path to becoming a career missionary with Global Infusion that includes earning an accredited degree, and being mentored by experienced missionaries and indigenous leaders.

The Knoxville Dream Center provides good food, authentic faith, and opportunities for a brighter future for those who need it most.
Even though the Knoxville Dream Center started in 2014, it has its roots in a ministry that started 30 years ago.
In the early 90’s, Maxine Raines launched Lost Sheep Ministry.
Growing up homeless herself, Maxine wanted to give back. She wanted to
see the homeless in Knoxville cared for and find faith in Jesus Christ.
Armed with hot dogs, Maxine served the homeless from the trunk of her car and never looked back! Eventually finding a “home” under the I40 bridge, Lost Sheep Ministry has served the homeless every Wednesday night for close to 30 years...not missing one Wednesday during this time!
That Wednesday ministry continues to this day And we have been blessed to do so much more! Including sending our food trucks (mobile food pantries) to give free groceries to anyone in need all over the Knoxville area every week!

life-changing message of Jesus Christ to the children and families
living in Knoxville's low income inner city areas. The ministry includes
sidewalk SONday Schools in multiple locations, relationship building

Since 1995 we have been working towards transforming
our inner city by equipping and empowering its children to fully
