Join Gideon's 300!

For more than forty years, Temple Baptist Academy has served Knoxville-area families by providing a quality Christian education. Through the years, over 600 young people have graduated from the Academy with a strong biblical foundation and vigorous academic preparation, equipped to find their place in God's will.

As the cost of living increases, we continue to work diligently to keep the possibility of a private Christian education a reality to any family that truly desires it. The difference between actual operating costs of the Academy and the income generated from tuition is covered by the gifts of God’s people. The Academy does not seek nor does it accept any government funds.

In the book of Judges, God used a man named Gideon to bring victory to His people at a time of desperate need. Despite having only 300 troops by his side, he defeated an enemy at least one hundred times as large. Like Gideon, we face a daunting enemy. But this one is dedicated to destruction of the minds and hearts of our children and grandchildren.

Gideon’s 300 has been established as a ministry of encouragement so that those truly believing in Christian education can become prayerfully and financially involved on a regular basis. Will you stand with us? The enemy we face is real and more determined than ever to devour the next generation.

You may choose to make a one-time gift or a weekly/monthly gift. All gifts will be receipted and are tax deductible. Pray for us faithfully as we seek to continue to serve the Lord and families through Christian education. We have only one opportunity to educate our children – we must give them a Christian education.
