Gospel Music Association Adopts No Other Name’s “Mission: Nashville” As Its Summer Service Project
The Gospel Music Association (GMA) has selected “Mission: Nashville,” Curb recording artist No Other Name’s fan mission trip as its summer service project. The trip will kick off this year’s IMMERSE conference, GMA’s music training experience, to be held in Nashville July 22-25.
For the last two years, No Other Name has sponsored an annual mission trip, inviting fans to participate in outreach areas like Managua, Nicaragua and Sao Paulo, Brazil. This year’s trip is a first for No Other Name, as the group has chosen Nashville as its mission field. As No Other Name’s Sam Allen explains, “Nashville includes hundreds of people groups, hundreds of languages spoken, and thousands of people who need to hear the Gospel.”
The trip, taking place July 14-21, will introduce GMA’s Immerse 2012. Conference registrants are invited to Nashville a week early to participate in the local outreach project. Jackie Patillo, executive director of the GMA, comments, “The GMA is so grateful to No Other Name for leading the charge in sharing the Good News with our Nashville community. We can’t think of a better way to lead into our training event IMMERSE than by serving our community in such a way.”
