The House has a mission to bring college aged people in the Chattanooga area to a deeper knowledge and love of Jesus Christ, and to equip them for ministry.
Our mission is specific. We are a ministry to those of “college age”: whether you are in college, in the work-place, or “in-between”. The university life, the working world, and the “in-between”places bring unique challenges and questions to those that are searching for meaning. Who are we? What is our identity? Where can I find life? Where can I find truth? Whether you are someone who has grown up in the church, or someone who is investigating the claims of Jesus for the first time, The House is a place to learn, ask questions, experience, and challenge yourself in the context of a community.
We believe that life is something to be cherished. It is a gift from God. It promises to be abundant when lived in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.
We live in a world that is constantly changing; one that promises new is always better than old. Yet we are bold to argue that God came to this earth over 2000 years ago – Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And He is relevant today. His words, His teachings, His acts of kindness, His death on the cross, and His being raised from the dead – these are “things of old” that are truth for today.
Our desire is to see college aged individuals discover Jesus Christ, and in Him their passion and their gifts for serving Him and others, and experience the joy of using those gifts in the surrounding community, and the world.
