Judson's New Life Initiatives

Judson is a multi-generational church that values all ages and is committed to guiding people to take their next step in following Jesus throughout every stage of their lives. We have created our New Life Initiatives to help us be the hands and feet of Jesus to vulnerable populations in the Nashville area. We have started programs at Judson and have connections with two other organizations in Nashville that are doing great things for children and their families in the name of Jesus.

Care Portal

Every child belongs in a healthy, loving family. No other environment has proven to be better suited for or more effective at delivering the safety, stability, and care that is so vitally important to a child’s wellbeing. Since launching in 2015, CarePortal has done for child welfare what other tech platforms have successfully done to disrupt entire industries. Just as ride-sharing and home-sharing services have unlocked value and connection in places where it didn’t exist before, CarePortal enables care-sharing: a social impact service that matches caring people with local opportunities to make a positive difference for and with their community. Right now, in real-time.

See the impact roundedrightarrow

CarePortal instantly connects you to the urgent, real-time needs of vulnerable children and families living right in your community. Needs such as a bed, a car seat, rent assistance, and more can provide critical, immediate relief and restore a family back to a strong and healthy state. Make your impact by responding ‘Yes, I can help!’ to a need today and reassure a child and their family that their community cares about them.

Embrace Grace

Embrace Grace exists to create a place of belonging within the church for young, single women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We do this through an 11-week support group that is designed to teach, but more importantly, show our participants the love of Christ each week as we meet together on campus. The group culminates in a church-wide baby shower to help meet all of our participants' most pressing physical needs.

We meet on Wednesday evenings during the school year from 5:45-7:15pm at Judson Baptist Church, Room 2119. We have a virtual meeting option available as well.

Tennessee baptist children's home

Because children matter. TBCH provides Christ-centered homes for children in hard places across Tennessee through compassionate on-campus homes and foster families. TN Baptist Children’s Homes has been providing Christ-centered, nurturing homes for children in hard places since 1891. Mrs. Georgia Eastman, who felt led by the Lord to provide a Christian home for orphaned children, organized a committee of faithful ladies to pursue the work. In just six months, the home (the former Hotel Delaware in West Nashville) was furnished and rented for $50 per month, and the ministry accepted the first children into care.
