Presbytery of Middle Tennessee
The Nueva Vida Hispanic Presbyterian new church development (NCD) in Nashville began its ministry in January 2013. Meeting three simple but crucial needs of the Latino community—language training, child care, and fellowship—has been the foundation of our ministry.
Every While parents learn a new language, we provide care and homework help for their children. Without this ministry, adults would be unable to come to the ESL classes.
Through these ministries, we have developed many relationships. Homes have been opened for Bible classes, and all are invited to church for worship services. Thanks to God and many volunteers, we now have worship services on Our challenge is clear, and our mission is centered. We affirm ourselves by singing a Hispanic song that says, “La iglesia sigue caminando, solo se detiene para predicar” (The church keeps moving, only stopping to preach).
Hasta la vista.
The Presbytery of Middle Tennessee serves 87 congregations.
