Due to the tremendous amount of growth and need in the community, we are building The Rowen Glenn Center as an addition for the Special Needs Ministry to better serve Middle Tennessee.
The facility will be approximately 15,000 square feet of intentionally designed spaces to provide multiple levels of engagement. Along with their vision and financial contribution, donors have asked for the building to be named in honor of Pastor Mike Glenn’s 3-year-old granddaughter (Rowen).
“God has been faithful to provide us the opportunity to serve this incredible population of folks in our church and in our Middle Tennessee community. Our continued prayer is that every single individual and family that comes our way will immediately know they are valued, seen, and have a place to belong here.”
-Tiffany McCullough, Special Needs Minister
“I’m grateful that members of our church saw a need slowly emerge and began to understand a unique calling. And, we’ve discovered an entire community of families in need because of the challenges of raising a child with special needs.”
-Pastor Mike Glenn
