Jesus said, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations , baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
As a church we commit a significant part of our budget to missions, because we are passionate about transforming this world with the justice and mercy of Jesus Christ. We send teams of people to other countries to share the gospel and change lives every year. We financially and physically support other new churches, both church planters and church planting organizations. We regularly support local ministries for our neighbors in need here in Franklin.
The Robinson Family: We are honored to be a part of the mission field in Uganda through the work God is doing with J.P. & Jill Robinson.

Discipleship.org: Under the leadership of Bobby Harrington, Lead Pastor at Harpeth Christian Church, Discipleship.org has committed to helping church leaders focus on the discipleship model that Jesus Christ showed in the Bible. Discipleship.org brings together and promotes leading voices, resources, and actionable content on discipleship. With the input and partnership of voices like Jim Putman, Robert Coleman, Bill Hull, Francis Chan, KP Yohannan, Alan Hirsch, and Jeff Vanderstelt, among others, we have identified seven key elements of a discipleship lifestyle as a framework. We seek to move people convinced about discipleship into this framework and out into effective practice. Discipleship.org champions simple, reproducible practices that make discipleship a practical reality. They have created a Model for Discipleship that has been promoted all over the world and commended to the disciple makers everywhere. We hope to influence the national dialogue and help turn churches back to discipleship. We have Discipleship Forums every year across the US. Our next one is in Nashville, TN on October 6-7, 2016.
Sierra Leone: As a church, we are exploring planting churches in Sierra Leone. We have partnered with The Raining Season, which provides housing, nutrition, education and small business grants to orphaned children and impoverished families. There are over 90 children being supported by Harpeth members! Harpeth Community is making an impact in this country.
