A Trevecca band will join other college performers in Nashville at an event designed to bring together Christians from various college campuses in the city.
Eustace, a band made up of five Trevecca students, will be one of the acts in United Nashville’s annual House Show on Oct. 20.
United Nashville, founded five years ago by a group of Vanderbilt baseball players, is a ministry that hosts events for Vanderbilt, Belmont, Lipscomb and Trevecca students to get together and know each other.
“It is an inter-collegiate ministry unifying all people through Jesus, and building relationships between colleges, coming together as one people,” said Jacob Bell, junior religion major and student body chaplain at Trevecca.
At the upcoming house show, one performer from each of the four schools involved in United Nashville will perform.
“Our scripture focus is in John 17, when Jesus prays for himself and prays for his disciples, and at the very end of his prayer he prayers for all believers, that we might be one,” Bell said. “This whole theme of oneness is what United Nashville is about.”
The event is held at Younglife Nashville’s house, located on Music Row. More than 200 students from different schools attended last year’s house show. This year, the show will be held in the attic to accommodate for more people.
“It’s not necessarily a worship event, it’s more of a get-to-know-you event,” Bell said. “What Trevecca wants to do is make these friendships with other campuses and build a stronger community in Nashville.”
The event, which is open to the public, is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., on Oct. 20 at 1515 16th Ave South.
