Tired of guilt trips…

West Knoxville is filled with former church goers. Tired of the “we’ve got it together” masks and the “why don’t you” guilt, you left the church feeling like the church left you. At Legacy West, you can hear what Jesus has done for you, not what you failed to do for Him. Leave your masks at home, we did! Come discover the real Jesus, lock arms with real people, and join the FIGHT to overcome real brokenness at Legacy West!

My Story...

I was born and raised in the oil fields of West Texas. I spent most of my childhood in a small church there. In my teen years, I felt the church had left me so I left the church. I wandered for many years.

As an adult, I made some poor choices. God began using my alcoholism and the promiscuity of my life to ultimately and graciously save me. I was separated from my bride and family due to those choices and in the midst of that destruction, God chose to save my wife and then used her greatly to reveal himself to me. I never knew the real God before that. Grace was just a word until that moment. Brandie, by the grace of God, was able to see past my failure as a husband and sin as a human and preach and pray for and to my soul. To read more click below...
