Shoeboxes Pic

Operation Christmas Child

Chattanooga, TN

We have packed shoebox gifts for several years. A small shoebox can have an eternal impact. We are honored to be a part of changing children's lives all over the world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.

Feed My Starving Children

Several times each year we participate in the Chattanooga Mobile Pack event for Feed My Starving Children. The events last for several days, in which hundreds of volunteers from Chattanooga help pack several thousand boxes of food. At one event, during the two hour shift in which we participated, 280 volunteers packed enough food to feed 180 starving children for a year. The boxes we packed were going to the Phillipines. View our photos of the event.

The Transformation Project

Chattanooga, TN
Join us in our involvement with the Transformation Project!

The Transformation Project is a ministry expression of Living Free Ministries, in Chattanooga. This is a small group based ministry which begins by coming alongside men and women incarcerated at Silverdale Workhouse. Participants who complete a nine week Bible Study called Insights are given the opportunity to petition the courts for early release or furlough to our program on the outside.

Transformation Project does not just focus on new habits, merely teaching participants to survive, but to thrive through the transformation which comes only through a new life in Jesus Christ. In order to accomplish that goal the resources of God must be incorporated into developing new thought patterns.

We at North River have been honored to take a home cooked meal to the participants of the program once a month for 4 years now.


Smoky Mountain Christian Camp

Coker Creek, TN

Located at the edge of the Smoky Mountains within hiking distance of North Carolina, SMCC is a great place for area teens to go for a summer camp experience.

Kids of all ages [age 10-20] attend from all over East and Central Tennessee.

The camp offers intense spiritual direction and encouragement, service weeks, wilderness weeks, great times for worship and fellowship, and even backpacking trips to the Grand Canyon.

SMCC continues to make significant investments in our nation’s youth, with a burning desire to see them grow in Jesus and become influential in the world around them for the Kingdom of God.
