Senior Adults

One of the unique characteristics of Christ Church is the diversity of generations. We are thankful for the numerous members who have faithfully served the church for 25-55 years. We honor and empower each senior adult as he or she continues to invest in the Kingdom and Christ Church.

The Independent Transportation Network

Dignified Transportation for Senior Adults

Christ Church was the pilot church in Memphis for this nonprofit ministry in 2014.

iTNMemphis is an affiliate of iTNAmerica, the nation’s first and only independent transportation network for seniors age 60 and up and for adults with visual impairments. iTNMemphis provides door-through-door, arm-through-arm transportation that is designed to feel like riding with a friend. Service is membership-based and available 24/7 for any purpose.

iTNMemphis currently offers rides that originate within the 240 Loop but hopes to expand as more volunteer drivers are available.  

Christ Church's iTN chair is Al Hartman. For information on becoming a driver, click here
