At the Kingsport District, we are committed to transforming people by recapturing cultural relevance in truth and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through the making and empowering of disciples of Jesus Christ. One of the many ways we accomplish this are our support of our partner ministries:
Get Real is a recovery ministry in the Kingsport and Tri-Cities area, led by Doug Hallock. The mission of Get Real is to create a program of encouragement, restoration and support, to raise people up to make changes in their lives that affect themselves and others. Anyone is invited as everyone struggles with something that keeps them apart from God. Get Real meets every Friday evening at 7:00 pm at Colonial Heights United Methodist Church located at 631 Lebanon Road Kingsport, TN 37663.
