Houses of prayer;

Welcome to University Campus

We do not have the conventional church-led college ministry, as more than half of our congregation is made up of college students. Our Sunday services at the Greenhouse Hub are diverse with different ages, ethnicities, backgrounds and walks of life and is a place where many of our college students have flourished.

The Greenhouse College Ministry 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!
