Services:
Of One Accord Ministry began in 1988 to bring a community effort (especially churches) to identify and meet local needs while showing hope through the love of Jesus Christ. Of One Accord serves the Appalachian Mountains and low income counties of Hawkins and Hancock in East Tennessee. Hancock is the lowest income county of Tennessee and the 27th lowest in the US. Average income for clients is below $600 monthly. There is no industry base, no United Way, no Red Cross; they are the emergency organization. Of One Accord is an example that God is still at work and miracles still happen. With just two fishes and a few loaves, Jesus fed 5,000. They see miracles of this type regularly. They operate: 3 Emergency Food Pantries 2 Thrift Stores 1 Free Medical Clinic

Of One Accord operates three food pantries serving all of Hawkins and Hancock Counties.  26,029 people were served in 2008.  This would include upwards to 1/3 of Hancock County which is unemployed.  This was their first program begun in 1988.
