Pastor Brad and Tammy Bryant began attending Restoration International Outreach (RIO) in 2000. In 2003 Senior Pastor, Ronnie Hepperly, asked Brad to become the Associate Pastor for RIO. In November of 2005, Pastor Hepperly asked Brad and Tammy to embark on their biggest challenge yet, to plant a church in Blount County. The purpose was to help accommodate the quickly growing congregations of the RIO Network. In January of 2006, Pastor Brad & Tammy and 40 members of RIO Central joined at Heritage High School and began a great ministry, which is now known as 180Church. A year later we moved to the property where we are now, on Montvale Station. The Bryant’s live in Friendsville and have 2 adult children. Their daughter Kelcey and son-in-law Ryan Bumbalough have 2 children Bryant and Easton. Their son Jordan is married to his wife, Hope.
