University Profile


University of South Florida (USF) is a public institution with a total enrollment of 50,000 students. As the fastest-rising university in the U.S. News & World Report rankings over the past decade, USF is one of only three preeminent state research universities, along with UF and FSU, a designation awarded by the Florida Board of Governors, which recognizes high-achieving universities based on several metrics including graduation and student retention rates. To achieve this, USF is driven by an intensified commitment to student success, offering affordable access to numerous academic services, programs, and events across the campus.


For many years, there has been a burden for the University of South Florida, and local saints have labored faithfully to contact and gain students, but after over two decades of prayer, a campus team has not yet been raised up. We believe the time for that to happen is now

We are praying that during the next couple of years, the Lord will lead some saints to migrate here to serve full-time on this campus and others to come and open their homes, refrigerators, and Recovery Versions to support their labor for the Lord’s interest.
