The Prayer Center is a place dedicated solely for prayer; either live prayer or generated through computer correspondence. The Prayer Center was designed to resemble the Garden of Gethsemane located at the Mount of Olives. When you walk in, you sense that you are joining Christ in prayer as you overlook the city of Jerusalem.
The final building of the Cathedral Campus broke ground in the summer of 2002, the second phase of the Family Life Center. This 20,000 square foot facility would become the home of the Middle school, High school and Young Adult ministries. Dedicated on October 12, 2003, the building was named after Jack and Nancy Horton, longtime congregation members who gave tremendously of their time, finances and love to see the Church flourish.
The Horton Youth Center is a fantastic addition to the campus, with state of the art media walls, classrooms, auditorium, 25-foot rock climbing wall, and more. The very next day, after the Horton Youth Center was dedicated, the Church held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Noah’s Park, the newly renovated, state of the art 18,240 square foot playground. Features include water activities, sand play, swings, tricycle path, play structures, and a climbing rock. The Preschool was awarded a CPSI grant funded by the Hewlett Packard Foundation to help fund the project.
The Church has never stopped growing, never stopped reaching to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to the community. Even after all these years, Outreach Magazine has named Cathedral of Faith one of the fastest growing and largest churches in America.
By the grace of God, the Cathedral of Faith has grown in each decade since its beginning. The Church has a heart to reach out to the community, communicating the love of Christ through service to our neighbors. One way in which we’ve done this is through education.
Beginning in 2007, the Cathedral of Faith welcomed University Preparatory Academy (UPA) to our campus. Founded by Kurt Foreman and a group of former educators, UPA’s mission is to prepare a diverse population of 7-12th grade students in the central San Jose and surrounding neighborhoods to enter and excel in the best colleges and universities in the nation, with the training to assume leadership positions in their community.
UPA’s objective is to enroll all students who are motivated and have a dream of going to a 4-year university and graduating with a 4-year degree, especially those students who may be under supported, overlooked, or under challenged in a large school environment, and would thrive in a highly intensive, supportive, and interpersonal environment.
UPA, is Cathedral of Faith's campus, has over 500 students. The campus is outfitted with extraordinary learning tools and spacious classrooms. In May of 2012, UPA graduates were headed to universities like Princeton, UCLA, New York University and UC Berkeley.
