A common theme you’ll read over and over is the desire to see changed lives. The passion to see God move in the lives of the people of Knoxville starts at the top and eventually leaks down to staff, members and guests. God has blessed The Heights with a team of people ready to seek His will and, most importantly, ready to obey His will.
