INFUSION 215, an evening of music and spiritual celebration, has been set for May 1 on the Tusculum College campus. The event will feature musical groups and inspirational speakers to inspire the audience to celebrate the love of God.
Sponsored by the Tusculum College Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the event will begin at 5:01 p.m. and will be held at the Pioneer Park baseball stadium. The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Scheduled entertainment includes Tusculum alumnus Roger Williams, the Crossroads Band, Eleventh Step, Chris Haymes, Scott Galyon and the Curtis Band.
“The students are excited about what God is doing in their lives and wanted to find a way to share that with their friends and the community,” said Sarah Brooks, assistant athletic trainer at the college and staff sponsor of the college’s FCA organization.
“We want people to be moved and have lined up a program of music, speakers and inspiration that will allow people to feel the spirit of God,” she added.
All aspects of planning and organizing of the event, as well as choosing the name was done by the students at Tusculum College.
“As we began to think about how we could affect our campus, the idea of this event began to grow as a way to share what God has done in our lives,” said Scott Lucky, a senior sports science major from Orangevale, Calif., who is a member of the group planning the event.
INFUSION 215 is a combination of the definition of infuse - “to inject a substance into the body for the purpose of good usually through the veins” and from a Bible verse - “Philippians 2:15: so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world.”
The line up of the event includes former NFL standout Scott Galyon who grew up in Seymour, Tenn. Galyon played for the University of Tennessee Volunteers before being drafted by the New York Giants. He played four years for the Giants and then played an additional three years after being traded to the Miami Dolphins. Galyon currently works for the national FCA organization.
Several music groups are also on the program, including Eleventh Step, a Christian rock band based in Morristown, Tenn.
The event is also being financially supported by Watauga Sports Medicine Foundation which is a sponsor of the event, and by the Tusculum College Student Government Association. According to Brooks, several local churches have also provided assistance.
