Who We Are

2nd Mile Church, located on Riverside Drive in Clarksville, Tennessee, is a Southern Baptist fellowship founded in early 2018 with the aim of going the second mile (Matthew 5:41) globally and locally, hoping to reach for Jesus the 86% of our city who are unchurched. We aim to reach others for Christ and teach others to follow Christ.
Cal Hampton is a man on fire for God.  Cal Hampton is a preacher who inspires passion for Christ, spreads his overwhelming love of the scriptures, and challenges all to “just a closer walk with Thee.”  Cal Hampton is a leader with his eyes on the cross.
From 1997 to 2016, Jesus used Cal to triple attendance and quadruple giving at his Green River Baptist Church in Waynesboro, Tennessee.  After nearly two decades of faithful service in Waynesboro, God gave Cal a heart and yearning for the salvation of Clarksville, his hometown.  Cal constantly seeks opportunities for 2nd Milers to serve Clarksville and shine His light around this town.
2nd Mile Church is also blessed to have Cal’s lovely wife, Diana Stokes Hampton, who sings like the angels, and their young son Issac, who like his namesake is such a blessing to his parents.  Cal and Diana also have two grown daughters and three spirit-filled grandchildren who reside outside of the Clarksville area.
