WOW Urban Ministry

WOW, which stands for “Win Our World,” is a local urban ministry that has been serving Knoxville since 2003.  The WOW program was designed by Pastor Amy Figg, Nancy Friedrich, and the youth ministry of St. John’s Lutheran Church.  The concept of WOW began when the group was forming ideas for its youth summer mission trips.  The group decided to work locally and let the youth ministry be in charge of the operation instead of traveling to other locations for missionary work.
