Founded in 1946, TTU has a passion for challenging students
academically and encouraging them to grow in their faith.
Tennessee Temple University is reaching out and engaging pastors across the nation and around the world through online learning. Many Southern Baptist Pastors and other Evangelicals have little or no formal training, but desire to be equipped to better serve God and fulfill their call to ministry with excellence. Realizing this need, Tennessee Temple University is rising to the challenge to meet the student where they live, in the context where they serve. Fall of 2012 the University will launch the “Knoxville Teaching Site” located at 4512 Asheville Highway, Knoxville, Tennessee. The site will serve a dual purpose as it houses the Center for Holy Land Studies, with Library, artifacts from Israel and state of the art teaching aids. The Master of Ministry degree will be offered this fall in a unique format for Tennessee Temple. A new hybrid learning approach will be introduced which will include an online format, as well as professors and students meeting to interact every other week on Monday evening for two hours per course. This hybrid method enhances and facilitates more interaction between the teacher and the learner. Students will receive group and one-on-one training to assist in the learning process. This will help students greatly in their desired goal of degree completion. Dr. Tony Crisp, Director of the Knoxville site, is a seasoned pastor and well equipped, along with others on our faculty, to mentor and lead our students in serving in a more effective way in their churches without the student having to leave their position and move to Chattanooga.
