What is Axis North?
Axis North is our Hendersonville Campus of The Axis Church. The Axis Church first began in 2009 in the Germantown neighborhood near downtown Nashville. We’ve always desired to be a church-planting church, and Axis North is our first opportunity to launch a campus.
Our vision is to create an interconnected, interdependent network of churches throughout Middle Tennessee that share a common sermon calendar, resources, accountability, and oversight. By God’s grace, Axis North will be the first of many, many campuses and churches launched under The Axis Church movement.
In 2015, as we surveyed what God was doing in our community we recognized that a large contingency of people gathering with us in Germantown were driving from Hendersonville. As we followed God’s call on our church to multiply we could see him already beginning to form a smaller community within our church family of people from the Hendersonville community. The decision to launch a campus in Hendersonville was more about recognizing what God was already doing within our church and following His good lead.
How is Axis North connected to your Germantown Campus?
The Axis Church began gathering at the Morgan Park Community Center in the Germantown neighborhood in 2009. In 2010 we moved to a warehouse building (1423 2nd Ave North) 3-blocks from the community center where we still gather to this day.
Axis North is the Hendersonville Campus of The Axis Church: the sermon text, preaching pastor, order of service, and leadership team will be consistent between the two campuses. In every way we are one church gathering at two campuses.
Because the sermon text will be the same at both campuses, our people will be encouraged to join Axis Communities with others from a different campus.
When and where do you gather?
Our North Campus gathers at 5pm on Sundays at the Sumner County YMCA (102 Bluegrass Commons Blvd, Hendersonville, TN 37075).
When we outgrow the YMCA facility, or if by God’s grace we are given a church building, we will transition to a church-specific location for this campus.
What should I expect?
If you’ve ever worshiped with us at our Germantown Campus you will be very familiar with our North Campus.
On a Sunday you might see some people in a suit and tie, others in a t-shirt and shorts, and a lot in between. We believe that God doesn’t expect us to clean ourselves up before we come to Him and that The Axis is His church; so we say, come as you are. Our worship gatherings usually last around 90 minutes and include worship through music, catechism, the preaching of God’s Word, prayer, and communion. We also periodically celebrate through believer’s baptism.
Our prayer for every gathering is that you would feel welcomed and loved and that you wouldn’t leave the building thinking about how cool our artwork was, how funny the preacher was, or how awesome the guitar player in the band was. We want you to leave our gathering amazed at God’s radical love expressed through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
