Where We Serve

What a joy it is to introduce you to our local church outreach in Crossville, Tennessee! You’ll discover that our passion is to provide a place where people just like you can have a life-changing experience with God.

At Cumberland Outreach for Christ, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.

Come as you are and enjoy our powerful worship services that offer biblical truth in creative and practical ways.

Together, we’re striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there’s down to earth teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.

So whether you’re a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to use your gifts, you can find a home here at Cumberland Outreach for Christ.

We are all on a bridge, so to speak, with God, our family, our friends, and our world … Join us, as we dare to cross each bridge on that journey. How exciting it will be.

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of World Outreach for Christ is our mission to the world to make disciples. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation.  Our mission field begins when believers walk out our doors.  We hope you will visit our local church, Cumberland Outreach for Christ in Crossville, Tennessee soon!  Our service schedule is Sunday morning at 10am and Wednesday Bible Study at 6pm.  We are located at 67 Woodlands Court.  Please call 931-484-0822 if you need directions.  If no answer please leave a message or call 931-484-0821.


Mission Outreach

World Outreach is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Our present mission areas are Haiti, Belize Central America, Guatemala and Israel. As finances are available a small team from our ministry travels to each of these countries to assist missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all God’s people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own country.


Praise and Worship

God-honoring worship is something we strive for in our meetings. We encourage everyone to get involved in our praise and worship ministry, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  Our worship services are traditional southern gospel with a mix of contemporary.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of World Outreach for Christ.  In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. For almost thirty years Brother Hayes has published a monthly booklet called the Trumpet Messenger.  A free message of the month on CD or DVD is offered each month.  In addition to Brother Hayes’ written sermons, many of our sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook feed for additional ministry communication.



Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God.  Phillip and Glenda are greatly blessed to have saints of God praying for them daily.  Many of these precious saints have followed Brother Hayes’ ministry for over thirty years.  Cd’s, DVD’s, and written articles from Brother Hayes has been “Church” for many shut-ins and those behind prison walls.  Brother Hayes has often said his church members are those on his mailing list.
