Pacer Hepperly is the senior pastor of RIO Revolution Church in Maryville, Tennessee, which began in 2007.

Pastor Pacer’s dream was to lead a church with a primary focus on bringing people to Christ and cultivating spiritual maturity. His goal was to help people connect with God in order to reach their full potential.

Pastor Pacer feels that the church should play a much bigger role in the local community and he has a deep passion for serving the local community here in Blount County, Tennessee. He also has the ambition of developing leaders as well. He aims to continue building relationships with local government, police, and the school system which he developed during his time working for the City of Maryville.

He and his wife, Connie, live in Townsend, Tennessee, near their two sons, daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren. An avid archer, he also enjoys hunting, hiking, and spending time with his grandchildren being the best Poppy in Tennessee.
