Trevecca Nazarene University Faith Nights® — which were introduced by the Sounds in 2002 and enter their eleventh season – have become a staple at Greer Stadium to the delight of families and church groups in Middle Tennessee, Southern Kentucky, and Northern Alabama. Trevecca Nazarene University Faith Nights® feature Christian concerts, fireworks, personal faith stories by Sounds players, and, of course, a fun night at the ballpark.

On each of the six Faith Nights®, gates open 1 ½ hours before first pitch while festivities start roughly one hour before game time.

Church groups of 15 or more can purchase tickets for this special night for only $12.00. The ticket price includes admission to the concert, a reserved seat for the game, a voucher good for one hot dog and a 20 oz. soft drink, and group recognition over the public address system and on the scoreboard. To receive the Faith Nights®, ticket special, call a Sounds sales representative or visit www.nashvillesounds.com/faithnights. [1]

The Sounds’ Faith Nights® program has a strong history of philanthropic support. The team and its fans have built three Faith Houses in the Nashville area in conjunction with the Habitat For Humanity program as well as provided a clean well to a village in Kenya, Africa through a joint venture with multi-platinum Christian recording artist Jars of Clay’s Blood:Water Mission.

Trevecca Nazarene University serves as the new title sponsor of the Faith Nights® in 2012. Dan Boone, President of Trevecca Nazarene University, sees multiple benefits from the expanding association.

“Trevecca is glad to be offering our neighbors across the city a great night of baseball,” Boone said. “As a Christian university, we heartily endorse fun with our Christian friends. Play Ball!”

Trevecca Nazarene University heads a group of corporate sponsors that includes 94 FM The Fish, Solid Gospel 105, Dream Home Construction, LLC, and Anchor Trailways and Tours.
