Who We Are
The Campus House of Prayer opened in 2009 as a venue for 24/7 prayer, worship and united gospel movements at the University of Tennessee. Presently we are "home" to five collegiate ministries - Campus House of Prayer, CRU, Campus Outreach, Bridges International and Athletes in Action. By bringing together students, campus ministries, local churches, businesses and Kingdom-minded individuals to pray and "co-mission" together, we strengthen the influence and impact of the Body of Christ on campus. Ultimately, we want to see the University of Tennessee saturated with the good news of Jesus and campus culture transformed.
The Cry for Unity
We firmly believe that if Christ-followers can come together in humility and commit to know “Christ and Him crucified," then God will be glorified through our unity, and ministry on our campus will be amplified. This is not to say that we must agree on every matter, nor is unity itself our pursuit. For the sake of the gospel of peace, it is important that our campus and city see unity expressed through our mutual love and humility and understand that kind of "oneness" is consistent with what Jesus prayed on our behalf:
"The glory that you have given me I have given to them that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me."
John 17:22-23 ESV
