The Tennessee Mountain Mission (TMM) was founded in 1938 by Rev. and Mrs. A.J. Levengood. In the first few years, the Levengoods moved to rural East Tennessee and taught Bible classes in communities without established churches. Gradually their emphasis moved toward visits to public schools. While working with local school children they added a Bible memory program, and awards were given to those that memorized a specified list of Bible verses. The major award was a free week of Bible camp. For the first few years the camp was held at nearby Fall Creek Falls State Park or at Bryan College. In 1945, TMM purchased our current camp grounds, a former summer resort known as Cumberland Springs.
Today TMM Ministries operates Cumberland Springs Bible Camp, administers Mail Box Club Bible correspondence courses, hosts an Adult Ladies Fellowship, and makes the CSBC facilities available to churches and like-minded groups year-round for camps, conferences, retreats, and reunions.
TMM Ministries is a faith ministry and is not affiliated with any denomination. The work is supported by churches and individuals who feel led of God to support the ministry with prayer, finances, and volunteer labor. TMM Ministries invites Christian friends to pray for this ministry and to contact us for more information.
