Trevecca Nazarene University

Trevecca welcomes many summer visitors

Trevecca Nazarene University has welcomed many visitors to its campus this summer. The groups began arriving only days after Trevecca ended its spring semester, and they have made the summer nicer by their presence.

Students in the School of Education’s Intensive Summer Learning Experience  (ISLE) came to campus May 9-11 for the first of three ISLE weekends. The 153 students in that program returned for classes June 5-8 and 26-29.

From May 12 to 16, 220 officers of The Salvation Army (TSA) Southern Territory were on campus for their annual week of summer continuing education classes. Also during that week the Millard Reed School of Theology and Christian Ministry welcomed graduate religion students for a week of classes.

During the week of June 16, the Yes Conference was held at Trevecca, and 75 teens and chaperones from the Southeast region attended. The purpose of this conference was to give these teens the opportunity to explore their call to ministry. Another group of teens and chaperones arrived on July 23 for Mission Nashville. During their week at Trevecca, they engaged in mission service with community agencies and churches during the days and participated in worship services at night.

Last week (June 30-July 4) Trevecca welcomed 746 Bible quizzers to campus for the Q Conference. These winners of regional Bible quizzing contests competed against each other to be the top Bible quiz team of the Church of the Nazarene in the U.S.

This week two groups will visit Trevecca. On July 6, Camp Electric returns to Trevecca for a week of Christian music training and experience. A total of 910 musician-campers will attend classes and seminars, have music lessons, and will listen to Christian artists. Also Nazarene Theological Seminary will conduct a graduate class at Trevecca. 

Trevecca has been pleased to provide some southern hospitality to the persons in these groups.
