Salvation Army begins second year at Trevecca Nazarene University

The Trevecca Christian Ministry Program kicked off its second year of providing continuing education and degree credit classes with the Salvation Army Southern Territory. Approximately 200 Salvation Army officers from Texas to Florida to Maryland attend the week-long event of intensive coursework in ministry. Officers meet daily on campus to participate in courses in Bible, Theology and Ministry leadership taught by TNU faculty and guest lecturers. Courses include advance reading and follow-up writing assignments to enhance officer learning. Salvation Army leadership also participates in co-teaching and facilitation in the classes.
    Dean G. Blevins, director of the Christian Ministry Program, notes that this collaborative effort between the Salvation Army Office of Continuing Education and Trevecca School of Religion highlight the mission of the University by providing quality education for leadership and service on behalf of a sister holiness denomination. Major Michael Reagan, principal for Continuing Education with the Salvation Army, acknowledges that students enjoy the classroom environment Trevecca affords as well as close interaction with faculty during the week. Associate director Gail Pusey, reports over twenty officers have enrolled in a special degree completion program and additional Salvation Army students have enrolled in the M.A. in Religion at Trevecca.
