Support the Barth House this Giving Tuesday!



A lot of things have been competing for your attention this year.

But in the midst of the maelstrom of 2020, did you know that something beautiful was happening on Patterson Avenue in Memphis?

If you blinked, you might have missed it.

This year, through the major renovations to the Barth House on the University of Memphis, college ministry sprung back to life in the Diocese of West Tennessee.
The place where so many of us came to understand Jesus’ way of love during our own college years is now ready to serve many more young people in our community.

As soon as it is safe to gather again, Barth House will serve as a hub for students at the University of Memphis, LeMoyne-Owen College, Moore Tech, Rhodes College, Southwest Tennessee Community College, Christian Brothers University, and other area colleges. Lead by the Reverend Dr. Noah Campbell, the ministry and space have been designed to be inclusive, accommodating, and hospitable to all.

If 2020 has taught us one thing, it’s that we don’t have to be in the same room to learn together, make meaningful connections, or even pray together.

But there’s no substitute for face-to-face interaction. That’s why donations made today – December 1, 2020 – will equip Barth House with items such as outdoor heaters, benches, and outdoor games to facilitate safe, socially distanced gatherings.

Today, Giving Tuesday, we invite you to make a gift to the Diocese of West Tennessee that will be allocated to Barth House college ministry.

Thank you for your generosity!
