TTU, Woodland Park Baptist in talks to expand campus

Posted: Updated:

Tennessee Temple University, TTU, announced Sunday that they are working with Woodland Park Baptist Church, WPBC, regarding the potential development of a new campus for TTU.

The proposed location of the campus is on a portion of the WPBC site.

"The potential for an expanded campus together with the commonality of the mission that we share has sparked this conversation with WPBC. We are grateful and excited to explore such opportunities," stated Dr. Steven Echols, President of Tennessee Temple University.

"We believe that ministry is ‘received, not achieved.' This is not some idea we have come up with, but rather something we feel God may be raising up, and we are excited about the possibility of partnering together," stated Dr. Wayne A. Barber, Senior Pastor of Woodland Park Baptist Church

Woodland Park Baptist Church occupies a site of approximately 170 acres. TTU's current campus consists of approximately 21 acres.

Echols says TTU has seen a 47 percent increase in students since 2011.
