“I feel while walking on this campus, when you invited me here so recently, that you get it. You understand it. You feel it, unapologetically. No bragging to it. It is just what you do. It is just part of why God put you here.
The Trevecca Celebration in Florida and the Trevecca Alumni and Friends Cruise shared some common features. A lot of laughter. Special memories. Friendly times around a table. Prayers prayed and testimonies given. Funds raised for scholarships. The positive story of Trevecca lives on through these unique gatherings.
Recently I was blessed to reconnect with a friend from my Trevecca days.

We gather in moments like these to remember and rehearse what we most
deeply believe. In the face of death, we become soberly serious about life.
On casual days we make decisions based on our most deeply held beliefs,
and over time, we take the form of those beliefs and actions. Death seems to
be that clarifying moment when it becomes apparent whether our beliefs
were about convenience or conviction. The death of my Mother punctuates
When Christians talk about deeply held beliefs, it is possible that we are
talking about a list of doctrines. I prefer to think that we are talking about the
story we find ourselves living out. For us, that story is succinctly captured in
The Apostle’s Creed, one of the oldest statements of our faith.
As I write this article today, I have been watching the pictures posted by Trevecca of the first week of the fall semester. How long has it been since your first week at Trevecca?
A few weeks ago we had a wonderful opportunity to spend time on Trevecca’s "Front Porch” booth at General Assembly.
What a wonderful experience it was to be able to visit with alumni and friends of Trevecca at the booth and the Trevecca Alumni & Friends Luncheon.
Trevecca lost a beloved former professor when Jim Foglesong, the founding director of Trevecca’s Music Business Program, died Tuesday, July 9. Foglesong is known around the world as a Country Music Hall of Famer and groundbreaking music executive who signed Garth Brooks, George Strait, The Oak Ridge Boys and others.
