Christian Education

Christian education is a vital part of Church Street’s ministry in the community. Since its beginning and because of its proximity to the University of Tennessee, Church Street has been home to and attracted scholars of all types: religious and biblical leaders, historians, artists and architectural experts, community and social justice leaders, and more. Whether it is engaging with one of our Sunday School classes or attending a special lecture series or educational event, there is always something new to learn at Church Street.
