Church Planting

With Pastor Kevin Miller

In 2009, me, my 6-month pregnant wife, our 2-year old daughter, and 3 of our friends packed up our lives and moved across the country to start Awaken Church. We arrived in a city we’d never lived in to attempt something we had ever done. We had no jobs, no funding, no connections, and no idea what we were stepping into, but we were filled with faith and vision.

It’s been almost a decade since then, and we still have a lot to learn as we move forward. However, God has honored our faith and used us to plant a vibrant, growing church in Clarksville, TN, that now has a global reach through missions work and online streaming.

When we first arrived in Clarksville and began to realize that we were in over our heads, I dreamed of one day being able to help other church planters.

That day has arrived.

Although we still have a lot to learn, we’ve also learned a lot along the way.
I’d love to share some of what we’ve learned along this journey.
