The Resting Place was started in November 2007. After preaching for over 25 years for special events around the world, Pastor Kent Christmas heard a word from God that said simply... start a church. Obedience to God's word started humbly the next Sunday morning with 4 in attendance. But God is not interested in where we start. He's interested in where we finish.
The Resting Place believes in missions. While rest is in our name, we are not a church at rest. We are a church at work. Working in our community to serve those less fortunate and many who have found themselves at the lowest level of society, the homeless. Pastor Kent's wife, Candy, started The Bridge Ministry in 2004 and today, with volunteers from The Resting Place and support from churches across the country, serves Nashville's near 11,000 homeless. Every Tuesday night at 6:00pm as many as 350 homeless show up for a free meal, praise and worship singing and to hear a powerful word from God.
