One of the many ministries Calvary provides to the region is the Renew Men’s Ministry. The program is designed to help men of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. The Renew Men’s Home is Calvary’s vision for the physical facility that would further support their spiritual ministry.

Situated in Chattanooga’s growing southside and immediately adjacent to Calvary’s campus, the Renew Home is a two-story 6400 square foot building. The geometry serves to help bridge the gap between neighboring residential areas to the south and commercial areas to the north and east. The upper floor of the building serves as living quarters while the ground floor houses a large kitchen and gathering space. The lines between indoor and outdoor spaces are intentionally blurred, and the site includes recreation areas as well as gardens and public space.
