Welcome to University Campus

The Greenhouse College is devoted to discipling students through not just Sunday services, but also microchurches. We host and support several College-age and Intergenerational Microchurches (MC) that are spread out across Gainesville on different nights of the week. Joining a MC is the key to belonging, growth and empowerment.

We encourage you to meet with our GCM team and learn more about who we are and how we can help you become the disciple God has called you to become.

Join us every Sunday Night for a live worship experience and on-site preaching from our Senior Pastor, Mike Patz.

Asked questions

We are the same body of Christ no matter where we come together, but everyone of our locations has different accommodations. Please read some our most frequently asked questions for our Gainesville Hub campus.

Still have some questions?

If you still have questions or something is unclear, please reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help with whatever you need!

Each service is typically 80-90 minutes, and has a time of worship, Bible-based preaching, announcements, and an offering, but not always in that order!

Most of us wear casual clothes, but some people like to dress up. We’d like to think you will be as comfortable in a T-shirt and jeans as you would be in a business suit.


I’m grateful for Greenhouse College because it challenged me to go deep in my relationship with the Lord and realize the potential I hadn’t seen in myself. I gained a life-giving community and got more connected with my Greenhouse faith family!

Mike Lane

Nextgen/College Pastor

Mike was born and raised in Jacksonville, Fl. He came to Gainesville in 2007 to attend the University of Florida. In the fall of 2009, Mike encountered Jesus in a big way, and his life would never be the same. Mike has an incredible love for students and desires to see students utilize the gifts God has given them. Mike is married to his childhood best friend, Danielle.


Patrick McConn

Interim Worship Director​

Patrick has been a part of our Greenhouse family since he was in Middle School, and a part of our Greenhouse staff family since early 2019. He serves as our Next Gen Worship Director, overseeing and leading the corporate worship experience for our College and Youth gatherings, developing and training future worship leaders, and working with our team to write and release new songs of worship from the heart of our church. Prior to returning to Gainesville, FL and Greenhouse, Patrick and his family lived in Atlanta, GA and were involved with and led on Passion City Church’s worship teams, and on leadership teams for Passion Conferences. While vocational ministry hasn’t always been a full-time career, his heart for learning about what it looks like to live a life postured in worship continues to deepen and grow. Patrick enjoys leading in worship together with his wife, Sally, spending time with loved ones, writing music, and raising their two children to love Jesus and the people around them with abandon.
