Roe Junction Baptist Church, Morristown, TN
Roe Junction Baptist Church members say that their Church is more than a building, and while that is true, Builders for Christ knows that a new building will serve as a ministry tool in the community.
Since March 29, 2020 when their building was destroyed by fire the church members have been determined to rebuild. This church plays a vital part in the health and well being of the community that they serve. This is why Builders for Christ has decided to partner with them this summer. We hope to bring a new excitement to the Roe Junction community, and witness to others about Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. The pictures above show the first 100 years of Roe Junction Baptist Church and what the future building will look like.

The Roe Junction Baptist Church Groundbreaking.
BY DREW ROBINSON, Tribune Staff Writer May 3, 2021
The past year has been difficult for the congregants of Roe Junction Baptist Church, but this Sunday they gathered around the empty lot where their former church building had burned down and celebrated the groundbreaking for a new building.
Wild Building Construction representatives were on hand to join with the church in marking the milestone.
David Wild, owner and president of Wild Construction, said Wild Construction was blessed to be able to step in and help with the project after the passing of contractor Gary Epps, who had started the rebuilding project with the church and had succumbed to COVID-19 earlier this year. He said after Pastor Jason Lemka gave them a call, Wild called Builders for Christ, who agreed to come in and partner in providing much of the labor for the project.
“We’ve got over 300 volunteers signed up to come and help during a three month period starting in June and finishing in August,” Wild said, “They’re from all over the country in eight different teams- some are retired but some take vacations. They pay their own way, so it’s truly a Godly mission to help the church.”
