The

Paradox

We are a 501(c)3 non profit ministry, partnering
with area churches to help teens develop lasting relationships with Jesus Christ.
We are also a member of
the Knoxville Leadership Foundation.
We'd love to partner with your church,
youth ministry or organization, so that we
can be more effective in reaching this generation.
A place where students can "hang out" with friends;
after school, evenings and Saturdays

A youth center with a skatepark and gaming center

 A Music Venue on Friday and Saturday Nights
where local High School and College aged bands can perform
as well as nationally known Christian artists

A site for local church youth groups
to have retreats & lock-ins

A place for the Training and Encouragement of
professional and volunteer Youth Workers

And lots more!!!
Connecting Unchurched Teens
with Caring Christian Youth & Adults.
The Paradox is ...
Why "Paradox?"
 Webster's dictionary defines a paradox as:
a statement that seems contradictory, but may in fact be true.
 The Bible says that we are to be in the world but not of the world.   
Many Christians focus on the 'not of the world' but forget to be 'in the world.'
 We propose a partnership to help area churches become more effective in reaching non-churched Jr. & Sr. High students.
We want to meet the unchurched where they are, just as Jesus did.   

 The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:22-23 TLB
"Yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so that he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him.  I do this to get the Gospel to them."

 At the Paradox, our programing will be designed to draw students into relationships which will give us opportunities to share the Gospel.
 The World offers much to our Youth today... but many of those offers are false promises and temporary pleasures that can lead students into a life of despair and unhappiness. We want to offer them something better. 
 Working together we can reach this generation for the Kingdom of God!
