|East Tennessee School of Preaching & Missions|
The East Tennessee School of Preaching and Missions are located in Knoxville, Tennessee. They are under the guidance from the elders of the Karns Church of Christ in Knoxville and Bro. David Pharr who serves as the director for the school. There mission is to train preachers with a quality education and dedicated to evangelism.
The school is a non-profit organization which does not charge students tuition, but they are responsible for their books and living expenses. Because of this many students are older and most are married. Many classes are taught by area ministers without compensation, so most of the school's expenses go to pay the salaries of the full time instructors. ETSP is a 2 year college that requires approximately 60 hours a week plus homework. This means that a typical 4 year program is compressed in to 2 years.
There are currently 5 men that the Portland Church of Christ help support. They are Michael Meals, Jeff Arnette, Craig Ressler, Michael Lerrs, and Benjamin Montijo. The Portland Church of Christ is very proud of this school and the men they teach.
