You Can Afford a Trevecca Education

You Can Afford a Trevecca Education

Summer means vacation and camps and family reunions. If you’re the parent of a high schooler, it may also mean touring college campuses in order to find that home away from home for your child.

I hope you’ll consider Trevecca Nazarene University. We offer academic programs based on Christian values that promote scholarship, critical thinking, and meaningful worship for students in preparation for lives of leadership and service to the church, the community, and the world at large.

“But,” you may ask, “Isn’t a private Christian university education expensive?”

Actually, I’m pretty sure you can afford a Trevecca education; it’s more affordable than you think. I love this video that explores three common myths about paying to attend Trevecca.

The Big Idea I’ll Be Working On In 2015:  Reduce College Student Debt

The Big Idea I’ll Be Working On In 2015: Reduce College Student Debt

I suppose universities can make New Year’s resolutions. So here’s mine for Trevecca Nazarene University in 2015.

I resolve to find a way to reduce the debt of graduating students at Trevecca while simultaneously reducing the growing cost of unfunded aid to students.

Our students graduate with an average debt of about $21,000. This means some have more, some have less, and some have none. I could write about how this $21,000 is similar to the cost of a good used car, which will decrease in value the minute they drive it off the lot—while their investment in a college degree will repay itself about 47.6 times across the next 40 years.  I’d invest in a proven return like this every day. But my resolve is to drive this average debt number into the teens and find a way to keep it there or lower.

A Living Sacrifice

A Living Sacrifice

Today, I’m once again featuring a video from my series, “Stewardship: Celebrate Giving as God Gives.”

What does it mean to give a “living sacrifice”? I talk about that and also tell the story of my very first Sunday as a pastor in the Nazarene church at 15 years old.

Watch now and reflect on ways you can be a faithful steward of God’s precious gifts.

John Wesley on Wealth

John Wesley on Wealth

Today I’d like to share with you a video I made awhile ago. It’s part of a stewardship video series titled, “Celebrate Giving as God Gives.”

This video is “Wesley on Wealth.” I’m sure many of you are familiar with the quotation, “Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.” In this video, I explain the meaning behind Wesley’s words and how we should interpret them today.

Join me as we consider financial stewardship that glorifies God.
