About The Episcopal Church In East Tennessee
We are the Episcopal Branch of The Jesus Movement in East Tennessee! Our Church is a collaborative community of engaged members with a “can-do” spirit who are creative, energetic and generous followers of Jesus. We are nestled in the valley between the Cumberland Plateau and the Appalachian Mountains, covering approximately 14,350 square miles in 33 counties in East Tennessee and one in North Georgia. Within this area are 51 diverse congregations which range in attendance from nine to more than 450 faithful worshipers. The Rt. Rev. Brian L. Cole is the fifth bishop of East Tennessee. Clergy number more than 150, which includes 73 priests, 22 vocational deacons and more than 60 non-parochial and retired priests and deacons, all serving under a common goal to Reconcile All Things in Christ. You are welcome here and we look forward to seeing you!
