Celebrate 50 years of Trinity Community Church's rich history and God's unwavering faithfulness. Join us as we reflect on our journey and look forward to a future filled with grace, power, and community impact.

As we gather to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Trinity Community Church, it’s a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve been on together. This milestone isn’t just about marking time; it’s a testament to the unwavering grace and power of Jesus Christ, who has been our foundation from the very beginning.

Our story began in the early 1970s, during the charismatic movement that swept through Knoxville. A group of believers, hungry for a deeper experience of the Holy Spirit, started meeting in homes. By 1974, they had formed what would become Trinity Chapel, and later, Trinity Community Church. Our first permanent home was on Dedrick Avenue, a humble building where the seeds of our community were sown.

Over the decades, we’ve seen God’s hand at work in countless ways. From the early days of pioneering faith led by Jack Wright and Charlie Riggs, to the transformative leadership of Steve and Sandy Fatow, and the dynamic ministries that have emerged under Neil Silverberg and Tyler Fado, Trinity has been a beacon of hope and spiritual renewal.

We’ve experienced profound moments of worship, powerful moves of the Holy Spirit, and a deep commitment to both the Word of God and the power of His presence. Our community has been characterized by a balance of solid biblical teaching and a vibrant expression of spiritual gifts, a legacy we continue to uphold.

As we look to the future, we embrace the prophetic word spoken over us. This is a new season, marked by growth, multiplication, and an even greater impact on our city and the nations. We are committed to being a church that is grace-based, Spirit-empowered, and outward-focused, ensuring that the best is yet to come.

Join us in this celebration of faith, community, and the incredible journey of Trinity Community Church. Here’s to the next 50 years of God’s faithfulness and our unwavering pursuit of His kingdom.
