For the past five years, the Hope Bus, better known as the Black
Bus, has ventured downtown to Johnson City to minister to those on the streets. Every Sunday morning, the bus heads down with food and clothing, tents, sleeping bags, personal hygiene items, hats, gloves, and much more for a time of worship, prayer, and ministering The Word of God. Our goal is to minister, not only to one’s physical needs, but more importantly, their spiritual needs; the need for salvation, deliverance, and healing. We park downtown, leaving the bus running to keep it warm and invite all to come aboard. We have men and women stationed on the bus waiting to provide them with the assistance they may need as the Word is ministered while also taking time to pray and intercede for them.

If you would like to be a part of the Bus Ministry, we meet every
Sunday morning from November until April. We begin around 8:30 am and usually wrap up around 12:00. During the winter months, you will find us on the streets of downtown J.C. Your support and help are needed, and crucial for this ministry to be effective, but most of all, we covet your prayers. Please contact Tom Campbell @ 423-741-9844.

We host weekend seminars, teaching the fundamentals of how to

on the streets for real-life, cold turkey Evangelism.
