We're so glad you've chosen to take a look around the site. This page will help you get to know a little about our mission, beliefs and ministry leaders. If you'd like some further information, or just want to say "hello," we'd love to hear from you! Let's start with the mission of Blackman Community Church: Loving. Sharing. Sending.
At Blackman Community Church we believe that the Christian life begins with being loved by God, and loving God in response. Each time we gather to worship it is in the knowledge that God unconditionally loves us, and we are driven to love God with all of our hearts, mind, soul, and strength in return!
God calls us to share this journey of love with others. We are never alone! Therefore, we believe that the life of every believer is defined by sharing life and service together in community and for our community. We believe this should be a part of our regular rhythm of life.
Christ is a sending Savior. This is why, at Blackman Community Church, we celebrate the sending capacity of our church. We believe that every person and community is being sent by God to participate in the movement of the Kingdom of God! Our desire is to participate in it!
Blackman Community Church is part of the worldwide Church of the Nazarene. We're a Protestant Christian church with an emphasis on the transforming work that God wants to do in our lives - to shape us into people who reflect the character of Jesus. If you want to learn more about the Nazarene denomination, check out www.nazarene.org. Here are some of the basics from our articles of faith:
Loving. Sharing. Sending.
Our church is led by a growing team of people who have given their lives to serving the church. We're thankful for how God is using them in our community.
Joshua Haun is our lead pastor. He has previously served as a missionary and pastor and brings a tremendous amount of excitement to church planting. Joshua is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene.
Katie is our Hospitality Director (and Josh’s wife!). She’ll be the person to look for on Sundays who will help make sure you’re welcomed and have something to eat and drink .
Sam Hattaway serves as our city wide Youth leader
Blake Hathcock is our Set-up Team Coordinator. Each Sunday, he leads a team of volunteers that set up our worship space before service and tear down the worship space after service.
Gabby Smith is our Worship Leader. She is a graduate of Trevecca Nazarene University’s Center for Worship Arts and is currently working towards the rest of her 4 year degree from there as well. Gabby is a gifted vocalist, writer and guitarist with a genuine heart for leading God’s people in worship!
