The Mission Chattanooga aims to reach, empower, and release students as fully able ministers of the Gospel.  We believe that the local church should be the centerpiece of this equipping and sending ministry.  The college years can be both wildly exciting and painfully difficult.  We walk through triumphs of self-discovery and pitfalls of fear, relational struggle, and confusion about the future.  No one should have to walk through these things alone.  Thankfully God has given us the church as His family to journey with us through the joys and hardships of life.  At the Mission we want everyone who calls this place home to be cared for.  If you would like to meet with a pastor to pray or simply hang out and talk about life, email  We’d love to set up a time to meet with you!  Every week, more than 150 students from Chattanooga area colleges participate in our Sunday worship services at the City Center, Highland Park, and Red Bank neighborhood Chapels.  If you are interested in getting plugged into University Ministry at the Mission, contact Katrina Payne.
