We are constantly seeking to share what we have!
The Spread of Love
Since then we have traveled to New England, the Midwest, the West Coast, and Canada, throughout Europe, and even South America and Australia to take the life that we found to these many other places. We have also raised a lot of children, many who are following our footsteps and taking on our faith.
Over the past 35 years we have grown to several thousand members, with over 50 communities in 10 countries. We are known as the Twelve Tribes and you can learn more about us at www.twelvetribes.com
We have returned to Chattanooga, Tennessee, our original starting place, and have opened a new Yellow Deli at 737 McCallie Avenue, and we have community homes where people can live together, overcoming the enemies that divide mankind and to achieve instead a life of peace and love. At the new Yellow Deli, which is located on the campus of UTC, we are promoting free speech through symposiums and open forums.
Our desire is to reach out to the people who live in the Chattanooga area, our spawning ground 35 years ago, and to show them a viable demonstration of love being lived out and perfected in unity.
We welcome everyone to visit us at our new residence located at 900 Oak Street in the Fort Wood district. This house is being used as a center for hospitality and for people we meet to get to know what we’re all about.
