We are grateful to have Tommy Drinnen working with us as our local missionary in his role as Executive Director at Hope Central (501c3 non profit ministry) ministering to youth and families in the Parkridge community of East Knoxville. Tommy's work is full time in this inner city minsitry that brings hope to the families of Knoxville.
Several other churches of Christ in Knoxville are also involved in this work: Hardin Valley, Laurel, Maryville, and Farragat.
Tommy grew up at Arlington where his dad served as one of our elders. Tommy came to Arlington after working at the Village of Hope in Ghana, West Africa for five years. His experience, wisdom, and training is a great blessing to the Arlington family. He married Rebecca in 2012.
Tommy is also a regular teacher in our Sunday morning classes at Arlington when he is not out speaking on behalf on Hope Central. He also assists Mark with preaching and other duties when needed. Tommy can be reached at 865-748-4564.
