In March of 2020, Tony & Karen Crisp, after a two-week period in their home base in Tennessee, were about to leave again for Israel when COVID-19 shut down all travel. Several trips in October 2020-Spring of 2021 have since been rescheduled in 2022-2023. Dr. Crisp, normally in Israel in the fall, winter and spring months, was now in the states and praying about how He could serve and why God had allowed this to happen. God always uses for our good and His glory, circumstances and things we cannot understand.
Since October 11, 2020 Dr. Crisp has helped serve and lead a new work in Kingsport, Tennessee called, “The Remnant Church.” The church has now constituted and the Covenant Membership is growing and Jesus Christ is being honored throughout the Tri-cities area through this new people called The Remnant Church. Dr. Crisp was called in October 2021 as Lead Elder and Teaching Pastor
The church, located on West Stone Drive meets for worship each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m., and Sunday evening at 6:00 p.m. In addition, a Saturday evening time of study and teaching takes place at 6:00 p.m.
Services can be watched online at remnantkingsport.org or on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/remnantkingsport/ and services and sermons are posted weekly for those who cannot view or attend on Sunday.
