Christian Lohr loves baseball. With summer break in full swing, he could spend the time away from classes honing his skills on the field.
A few months ago, Dr. Tim Green approached me about a growing desire to more singly devote himself to ministerial preparation through the Millard Reed School of Theology and Christian Ministry. He felt that this would entail stepping down from the chaplaincy of the university. I listened carefully and suggested that my friend, Tim, think further and more carefully about this move. He did, and I respect his discernment. Dr. Green will transition from the role of chaplain in the coming year after 25 years of service. To my knowledge, a quarter of a century in the role of university chaplain is the longest tenure in the Church of the Nazarene. Heaven only knows the contribution that he has made to the spiritual formation of thousands through the Trevecca chapel program. He is, in my opinion, one of the finest servants of God that I have known. Dr. Green will continue in his role as dean of the School of Religion and full-time professor.
Graduation weekend is here! You have family and friends in town to see you get that degree you’ve worked so hard for, but after the pomp and circumstance is over, you’re going to need something to do.
Graduation is quickly approaching. (FYI: It's set for 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 7.) No matter what degree you're getting, successfully completing it is an occasion that's worthy of a little celebration.
I recently read through the Treveccan and found myself amazed and filled with pride when I noticed what an amazing difference our TNU alumni are making in our world. From beekeeping to the political arena, the Trevecca experience has influenced our alumni to continue the upward trajectory of their lives. We are continuing to build legacies.
