The C.H.O.P.

Who We Are

The Campus House of Prayer is a mission and ministry for 24/7 prayer, worship and united gospel movements, located on the University of Tennessee campus. Presently we are "home" to five collegiate ministries - Campus House of Prayer, CRU, Campus Outreach, Bridges International and Athletes in Action. By convening and connecting students, campus ministries, local churches, businesses and Kingdom-minded individuals to collaborate in prayer and mission, we strengthen the influence and impact of the Body of Christ on campus and across our city. Ultimately, we want to see the University of Tennessee and Greater Knoxville saturated with the good news of Jesus and 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
