Our Mission

The Tennessee Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church acted in June 2012 to initiate a new vision for the expansion of older adult ministries all across the conference.

This vision became reality in May 2013 with the creation of the Golden Cross Foundation—a non-profit corporation governed by a Board of Directors with representatives from all seven districts of the Tennessee Conference.

As an extension ministry of the conference, the Golden Cross Foundation’s purpose is (1) to provide assistance in funding new and ongoing ministries and services with Older Adults in the Tennessee Conference; (2) to provide expertise and strategic planning to the Tennessee Conference for the expansion of innovative and effective ministries with Older Adults.
