TreveccaNazareneUniversity sent a team of 12 students and sponsors to Gdansk, Poland May 4-14, 2009. This team continued the partnership that has been created between Trevecca and the work of the Church of the Nazarene in Poland.
While in Poland, the team worked with the The Stanislaw Moniusko Academy of Music. They performed a joint concert with the students, which was attended by the President of Gdansk. They also worked on the school’s athletic fields (digging a long jump pit!).
During their time in Gdansk, the team was able to live in the school dorm. The time at the school gave the Trevecca students the opportunity to build significant relationships with the students at the music school.
In addition to their work with the school, the team also did painting and landscaping work at the Sweet Surrender coffeehouse, a local outreach ministry of the Church of the Nazarene. They also participated in a community clean-up with the village of Kowale.
The team finished up their time in Poland with a trip to Krakow in southern Poland.
