Rio Revolution Church, Blount CountyTennessee
God gave Pastor Pacer Hepperly a dream of planting a church with a simple goal: to help people connect with God in order to reach their full potential. 39 people committed to help Pastor Pacer fulfill his dream and make it a reality. The first service was held at a local high school on January 7, 2007, with over 200 people in attendance. Since then, God has blessed his church with steady incredible growth.
Rio’s mission statement is “Our vision is to see every man, woman, boy and girl that is a part of this ministry, develop to their full potential, and serve with excellence in the area of their giftedness, creating an atmosphere of unity, where lost people are drawn to Christ.”

Vet to Vet Tennessee has partnered with the Rio Church beginning with the 49th Blount County Veterans Day on November 11, 2017. The guest speaker at the event was VTVT President Freddie J. Owens, who passed away on Good Friday 2018. His message included asking everyone to help find our veterans and their families and support improving the mind, body and spirit. Pastor Pacer realized that our community needs to do more with the mind and body and an instant partnership was formed.
On May 8th, Rio Revolution Church Executive Pastor of Administration Devin Lipsey and VTVT President Ed Junod discussed VTVT’s Expungement Clinic program. According to Pastor Devin, this type of program is exactly the mission of Rio and would love to participate in a clinic in Blount County. Pastor Devin and Ed agreed to pray on the opportunity.
Two days after the conversation, Rio Revolution enrolled as a VMFC.
