THE J.B. ELIZER CHAIR IN CHRISTIAN MINISTRY Frances Griggs Elizer, a long-time friend of Trevecca Nazarene University and a third-generation part of Nashville First Church of the Nazarene, has established the University's first endowed faculty chair, the J.B. Elizer Chair of Christian Ministry in the Millard Reed School of Theology and Christian Ministry.

An alumna of Trevecca Demonstration School, Mrs. Elizer's gift honors her husband of fifty-six years. J.B. Elizer was a realtor and developer in Nashville for more than fifty years until his death in 1999. He is remembered as a faithful and quiet Christian servant with a special passion for inner-city missions.
