How to find us

There are two ways to find us, as described here.


We are located northwest of the center of McMinnville, Tennessee. McMinnville is the county seat of Warren County, “The Nursery Capital of the World”, in Middle Tennessee. If you visualize a triangle formed by Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga and squint a bit you will see us in the middle of that triangle.

The easiest way to find us is to get on the US 70S bypass for McMinnville, also known as the Bobby Rae Memorial Parkway. Turn north at the intersection where Wal-Mart is located and follow the Old Smithville Highway and then Yager Road to our church building. Mind the curves and speed limits! (That part is “Law”.) You will see us on the left, across the road from a cemetery. That cemetery is not ours, but it provides an appropriate foreground over which to observe sunrise on an Easter morning. (Now, that part gets closer to “Gospel”!)

Alternative approach:

Alternatively, you could wait until we approach you in our mobile chapel and then follow it to the church. Unfortunately that mobile chapel could be anywhere in the area and it has no set schedule. Really, using the map is the better method!
