About Holston

Children in Poverty: Our Stories

Children in Poverty: Our Stories

At Annual Conference in June 2015, Holston kicked off a year-long mission emphasis for local children in poverty. Our 887 congregations joined to give an initial $150,366 to support new and existing ministries for low-income children in our own communities.

Here and in regular editions of The Call, we will share our stories of how these ministries are changing young lives in Tennessee, southwest Virginia, and north Georgia.
