Our History


At The Right Place At The Right Time

City on a Hill began as a dream in the heart of its founders.  Tony and LaShea Colson carried a vision for a multi-ethnic, life-giving church into the city of Knoxville.  in 2002, this young couple returned to Knoxville and began gathering a core group of individuals around them willing to commit to the task of starting a new church.

 In 2016, Tony and LaShea entrusted this great work into the hands of one of their godly sons- Sean Welch.   Pastor Sean is dedicated to being all God purposed him to be. Pastor Sean is determined to Reach, Teach and Equip men and women to be disciples of Christ and expand the kingdom of God.
