About Us

Trellis Network

Our Story

Near the end of 2020, several of us began to long for something more for our communities in East Tennessee. We began to long to be equipped and sent into the places that we live, work, learn, and play in order to see the tangible presence of Jesus show up in the ordinary. In January of 2021, we began to gather in an upstairs room of a coffee shop in Knoxville in order to pray and ask God what the next steps were. Over the next few months a vision began to form, and a name was decided on….Trellis.

Like a trellis that supports vines in a vineyard so that they can produce the best fruit possible, the Trellis Network is designed to empower and equip everyday followers of Jesus to live on mission, and to multiply themselves by launching disciple making movements across the communities and towns of East Tennessee and beyond.
