On Monday, July 1, Mission Nashville begins. This new event, sponsored by the Office of Admissions and the Millard Reed School of Religion, will welcome 400 teens and their chaperones for a week of service and mission experiences.
Church groups from several states—Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas—will come to Trevecca in order to experience a different kind of summer “camp” experience. Participants will live in Trevecca dorms, eat their meals in Trevecca’s cafeteria, and attend an evening worship service on campus. Trevecca alumnus Matt Hastings, pastor of the Estill Springs (Tenn.) Church of the Nazarene, will be the speaker for the evening services.
During the day groups will work in a wide variety of local relief and service agencies, help in community gardens, work with children of poverty, and participate in efforts to meet the needs of the less fortunate. Through these activities these teens will be exposed to the reality of U. S. poverty in ways that will help them see through the “me” culture.
