Emerald Youth Foundation
Community Transformation in Lonsdale
Emerald Youth Foundation plans to revitalize the health of one of Knoxville’s most distressed communities. With the construction of the Lonsdale Ministry Complex already underway, hope is flooding into this neighborhood. The facility will span a city block and serve as a hub for relationally and comprehensively engaging young people ages elementary through young adult in programs of faith, learning, and health. Emerald Youth’s ministry work will be expanded through more sports offerings, new playing surfaces, and a new Calling and Career ministry site, and expanded staff for JustLead and a new Worship Arts ministry.
