John 316 History
John 316 Outreach is a non-profit organization that seeks to share God’s amazing love by serving those in need in our community and around the world. John 316 Outreach was born in January, 2010 with a vision to serve the community by helping those in need. For several years, John 316 Outreach helped those with unsafe living conditions through its home repair and furniture missions. John 316 Outreach obtained non-profit status in the summer of 2012, launching as a 501c3 organization and continuing its previous service to the community. In January, 2013, the Blount County Missions Director was added to the team and plans were begun to expand programs to serve those in need. While continuing the Home Repair and Furniture Missions, John 316 added the Community Closet, Firewood Mission, Prayer Email Chain, Bunk Bed Mission, and the first annual ChristmasWishes program to their local services. In addition, John 316 sponsored its first Foreign Mission project, helping church members in Guatemala put a new roof on its building (see pictures below). As John 316 grows, it is able to serve more families in need in Blount County.
A weekly prayer list is sent via email every Wednesday to volunteers who pray for John 316 families and volunteers. If you have a prayer need or are willing to pray for these needs, please email the office at John316om@gmail.com.
