On May 11, Trevecca welcomed officers of The Salvation Army (TSA) Southern Territory for their annual week of on-campus classes at Trevecca. Approximately 220 officers enrolled in 11 classes. This year is the 11th year of the partnership of The Salvation Army Southern Territory and Trevecca, an agreement by which Trevecca provides continuing education services to officers—bachelor’s, master’s in religion and organizational leadership, and continuing education certificates. In addition to this week of classes, Trevecca also offers classes in Atlanta, Georgia, on the campus of Evangeline Booth College, the TSA’s school for officer training.
“Trevecca is honored to be the partner of The Salvation Army Southern Territory in its effort to ensure that its officers gain the continuing theological and clergy education they need. We, at Trevecca, are pleased to contribute in some small way to the significant work of our colleagues and friends in Christian ministry through the work of The Salvation Army,” stated Steve Pusey, Trevecca provost.
The Salvation Army’s time at Trevecca coincides with National Salvation Army Week, May 13-19. Established in 1954 by President Dwight Eisenhower, this week calls attention to the work of the TSA and its commitment “to serve those in need without discrimination.”
