The Chaplain’s Office
The Chaplain’s Office at Trinity Christian College opens up space in which all students, faculty, and staff are free to flourish in their ongoing spiritual and vocational development.
Whether you're celebrating or grieving or something in between, we would count it a privilege to join with you on your journey here at Trinity.
The Chaplain’s Office facilitates and leads the ministries listed below with the help of the student campus ministry leadership team. This team is made up of student ministry leaders, student worship scholarship recipients, and peer ministry scholarship recipients along with the Chaplain’s Office staff. The leadership team meets weekly with the Chaplain to review ministry activities, grow in spiritual formation, learn leadership skills, and encourage one another in prayer and by mutual accountability.
