Something to Think About - from Don Hastings

Posted by Trevecca News on Sep 17, 2014 9:32:36 AM

When I was a student at Trevecca, there was a program on the radio sponsored by a local company—a funeral home, I believe—called “Something to Think About.” I always listened because of the catchy title, so today, I thought I’d borrow it myself.

Something to Think About:

  1. Among the “50 Most Affordable Christian Colleges in the U.S.,” Trevecca Nazarene University was recently listed as #13. (Full list here.)
  2. Trevecca is ranked #15 among the fastest growing universities with doctoral programs. It’s nice when others recognize Trevecca’s attempt to make it affordable while also being academically strong.
  3. As alumni, all of us know that there is value at Trevecca that cannot be quantified.
  4. This year, Trevecca has set new enrollment records for both incoming freshmen and total traditional undergraduate students. (More here.)
  5. Parents will sacrifice, save money, and be inconvenienced to send their elementary children to a faith-based school through high school, but get this…
  6. 96% of evangelical Christians never think about sending their children to a Christian university.

Remembering Jim Foglesong

Posted by Trevecca News on Jul 15, 2013 2:15:03 PM

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. Below are just a few of the words shared on Facebook by the Trevecca community in remembrance of Jim.

Tammi Weed
I owe so much to James S. Foglesong. At first he was my professor, then he became my mentor and after I left Trevecca Nazarene University, he became my dear friend. He was the one who convinced my parents that Nashville was the place for me to be... He got me my first job in the music business and taught me much of what I know today. I'm deeply saddened by our loss but will be forever grateful to him and forever inspired by his legacy. Professor Foglesong, the honor was all mine...

A letter from Michael Blankenship

Posted by Trevecca News on May 21, 2013 2:48:38 PM

At this year’s Trevecca graduation I saw persons whose dream had come true.

Fulfilling those dreams and completing a degree was the result of a dream AND having a team around them, a team of special people—parents, church family, friends, employers, teachers, and others.

Amie's Miracle for Medical Missions

Posted by Robin Jewett on Sep 7, 2012 9:19:08 AM

“Last week, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to come to Trevecca, but God has provided in an awesome way,” Amie* relayed to me when I called her the week before classes started. As coordinator for the first year of the Physician Assistant Program, I phone students the week before orientation to answer any questions, and to ask how to pray for them.

I remembered Amie from months earlier, as I had been a part of her admissions interview team and heard of her calling as a young girl to be a missionary. Her Bible college education had been followed by raising money for the mission field by working as a certified nursing assistant. It was while working as a CNA that God began to clarify Amie’s call to both ministry and medicine. On the mission field in South America, God further clarified her vision to create a medical training program for medical missionaries, who would go back to serve their own people groups in South America, or even serve as medical missionaries in creative access countries.
