Where We Serve: Memphis


Memphis, known as the capital of the Mid-South, has been home to an ACE community since 1999. Memphis is known for wonderful music and is home to the King (Elvis Presley's) estate, Graceland. Live rock and roll along with soul music can be heard in many bars and restaurants. If barbecue is what you're looking for, Memphis has many tasty options.

  • "I believe that my community was ordained by God. The beautiful souls that I am blessed to have in my life for the next year or two are already helpful in so many ways. Therefore, I am sure that having them during my first year will benefit me as well. They will help to keep me mentally and spiritually stout which I will need."
