It will be a brief but important time for us to come together to seek God as we begin this semester.

"In the midst of the busyness of preparing for a new academic year,

I am so thankful that Collegiate Abbey provided time to pause and offer our labors and those with whom and for whom we serve to the Lord."

- Shawn Slate, Pastor Redeemer Knoxville

"The prayer breakfast last year was deeply encouraging. To be able to start the day with prayer for faculty, staff and campus units—serves as a reminder and recognition that the work we do matters and is impactful."
