Heart of the Cumberland
Phone: (931) 525-2600
(The following is from the Heart of the Cumberland website.)
Our mission is to provide hope and healing for the grieving through Christ-centered peer support.
A peer support group is a forum for mutual acceptance, understanding and self-discovery through communication with peers who have been in similar situations. At Heart of the Cumberland, children, teens and adults can share their experiences with peers and feel the love of Christ through caring adults who are trained to help them.
From our beginning eight years ago, The Humanitas Forum has been guided by a very big question: What does it mean to follow Jesus in contemporary post-Christian culture? My goal for the Forum has two parts, following the example of the men of Issachar in 1 Chronicles 12:32:
- To provide resources that aid in accurately understanding contemporary culture;
- To provide a venue for sorting out how best to engage this culture on the basis of historic Christian convictions.
Reformed University Fellowship (RUF)
Contact: Rev. Gavin Breeden
Gavin Breeden is the campus minister for RUF at Tennessee Tech. Our mission is to support and encourage him in his efforts. We can do this through prayer, being an encouraging church to RUF students, feeding RUF students, and generally getting involved with the lives of the students that RUF brings us.
(The following paragraph is taken from the RUF website.)
RUF is a Christian campus ministry providing opportunities to learn what the Bible teaches and put it into practice in our everyday lives. In RUF, we want to emphasize the importance of both doctrine and life. This means that the gospel must be understood if it’s to be lived, and also that it must be lived if it’s to be truly understood.
Though we are Presbyterian in affiliation, we welcome students from all walks of life, both the “convinced” and the “unconvinced’. None of us has it all together, but we are people deeply committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ, believing it has the power to change any person, any community, any culture.
