The Upper Room

Joma Short is the Director of The Upper Room, a House of Prayer and Creative and Performing Arts Center in Clinton, IA.

Purpose:  "We exist to create the atmosphere of heaven here on earth."

Singers, musicians, dancers, rappers, sound techs, poets, writers, and visual artists are all gathering into His House. The House of Prayer is the place where we encounter His goodness and His glory.  It is our desire to make His Temple beautiful as we worship Jesus with creative expression through His Word.

We are maintained by donations as well as faithful monthly partners. As we volunteer our lives full-time to maintain a Sanctuary and a Resting Place for Him, please consider becoming a monthly partner.  Join us! Join this volunteer army.

"Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power..."

Malachi 1:11
