Who We Are
“Authentic” and “Innovative” are two words that immediately come to mind when describing the faculty and staff of Trinity College. Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary was founded in April 1969 for the purpose of serving the adult learning community through distance learning formats so that the student would not have to abandon their church and communities in order to be better trained to serve in their church and communities. Over time, Trinity has become a leader in distance and online learning and excels in their service to adult learners by offering programs that reflect and honor the hard work and life-achievements of their students.
What We Do

Mission Objectives and Outcomes
Mission Objectives reflect what Trinity seeks to foster and develop through distance learning. Mission Outcomes reflect what a student will be learning to do, and ultimately what a graduate will be equipped to do. The Mission Objectives and Outcomes flow out of the Mission Statement, and affirm the Articles of Faith as they are accomplished.
Foster a Christian Worldview in Attitudes and Values (Heart)
Trinity graduates will be able to articulate a biblically-based Christian worldview of the subject area of study through the informed perspectives they express in their academic activities.
A biblically-based Christian worldview emphasizes the interpretation of personal and cultural beliefs and practices through the lens of Scripture apart from the theological positions of any one Christian denomination. An informed perspective is one that explores and utilizes precedent literature to compare and contrast the attitudes and values in one worldview with those of another.
Foster Spiritual Formation and Whole Person Development (Soul)
Trinity graduates will be able to identify best practices that contribute to personal growth and spiritual formation through self-assessment and peer evaluation.
Best practices are sustainable actions and conditions that a person has experienced as making a long-term and positive impact on their whole person development. Through self-assessment a person evaluates their formation and development, which guides them in identifying their best practices. Through peer evaluation a person receives external feedback, which helps refine self-assessment.
Develop Subject Area Knowledge and Understanding (Mind)
Trinity graduates will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices of the subject area of study through critical reflection of scholarly resources.
Knowledge and understanding involve the ability to recall factual and abstract information, and to utilize that information correctly and as appropriate to the context. Critical reflection evaluates those facts, abstractions, and applications through the lens of a biblically-based Christian worldview and the objective analysis of authoritative resources.
Develop Subject Area Applications and Skills (Strength)
Trinity graduates will be able to demonstrate skills in the subject area of study through well-reasoned applications and evaluations deployed in life, work, and ministry.
Well-reasoned applications and evaluations are a demonstration of the skill of a person to integrate a Christian worldview in attitudes and values with spiritual formation and whole person development and subject area knowledge and understanding. A person demonstrates their skills in the subject area of study through the deployment of those applications and evaluations in life, work, and ministry context.
