Trinity International University

Worship. Mentor. Build.

Trinity International University (TIU) is a Christian university affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America with campuses in California and Illinois. We exist to serve a distinct purpose and provide a unique experience. One mission unites us: to “educate men and women to engage in God’s redemptive work in the world.” We want to enable our students—at all entities and in every discipline—to be prepared to lead others, as they are entrusted with the gospel, to think and live as Christ-followers in the twenty-first century. Trinity is also home to a number of academic centers that contribute to scholarly dialogue and hold events every year, including debates, conferences, and lectures, which cover a wide variety of topics and feature respected experts and theologians.

Logos and TEDS Partnership

We don’t just want you to have a world-class education as a Master of Divinity student—we want to equip you for a lifetime of ministry rooted in God’s Word. That’s why we’ve partnered with Faithlife to equip you with Logos Bible Software specially designed to serve you in school, ministry, and everyday life.

TEDS Community Comes Together In Prayer

The community at TEDS can be seen praying together in the classroom, in chapel, at Bible study every week, and even off campus with other local students. Through such initiatives as the weekly prayer night and the monthly meeting of Chicago University Prayer, TEDS students have come together to bring everything to God.

Trinity Celebrates 125 years

The Trinity community is well familiar with the sweeping arc of this story: starting from humble beginnings in a church basement in 1897, Trinity’s journey is one marked by God’s faithfulness. Great Is Thy Faithfulness: The Trinity Story was written precisely to exalt God’s faithfulness.
