New Direction Church is a Spirit-filled, grace-based and community-oriented church family started by our Founders Jerrell & Angela Beard. After nearly six years as the Senior Pastor and co-church planter of The Zion Church in Jackson TN, God called our pastor to the office of an Apostle. In doing so, in 2011 Apostle Jerrell Beard heard the Lord grant him permission to resign from pastoring at The Zion Church and relocate to Middle Tennessee to plant churches and disciple leaders.
Beginning with a small group bible study in their homes, our Pastors laid the ground work to launch New Direction Church International. In 2012, New Direction Church International was birthed. We recently purchased four acres of land in Lavergne/Smyrna area where will we construct our 'mother church' soon. Currently, we worship at 105 Threet Industrial Blvd. Ste. 1002, Smyrna TN as we await the complete construction of our first church.We are radical for Jesus! We embrace the gifts of the Spirit, the Fruit of the Spirit, and the presence of the Holy Spirit. We are not ashamed to praise, shout, preach, prophesy or testify of God's glory in our lives!
The mission of New Direction Church International is to plant churches and make disciples of all people around the globe with the uncompromising message of Jesus Christ. Our focus is family, community, discipleship and evangelism.
