On September 11, 2001, Jarod and Jennifer were both serving active duty in the military during the attack on the World Trade Center. That day forever changed the way they understood the world and their purpose. Looking for answers, they turned to God. Praying together on the floor of their small apartment, they surrendered their lives to Jesus and discovered the love and power of God! Little did they know how God would direct the course of their lives over the next 15 years as they served together in ministry. In 2016, a small group of about 15 people relocated to the Nashville area from Kansas City with Pastor Jarod and his family to help start a life-giving, Spirit-empowered church here in Mt. Juliet. The first pre-launch team meeting was in their living room. Then, as the team began to grow, a few meetings were held at a Holiday Inn conference room. The first public worship service took place in a renovated funeral home in 2017. After outgrowing that space, New Tribe moved into what used to be an old YMCA ,and in 2020, expanded yet again in to our current location! In just a few years’ time we’ve been continually amazed at how fast this movement continues to grow. When someone asks, “what is behind the name New Tribe?,” we tell them, “we’re all about people”. All kinds and all types of people who are being made “new” through a life changing relationship with Jesus. It’s about family. A new kind of family where faith grows, hope is served, and love rules! We’re just getting started and there is a place here just for you! In fact, you are the reason we are here.
