A theological education is incomplete without sustained investment in Christian community.
Our students have formed a number of organizations centered around common interests and goals. You & your family’s time at TEDS or in the Graduate program can be enriched by participating in any of these groups or in the events they sponsor during the year.
The Graduate Student Government Association (GSGA) is a group of elected students who advocate for and represent the TEDS / TGS student body in various ways, including interfacing with faculty and administration, as well as providing leadership in campus activities and overseeing various student organizations. In addition to Graduate Student Government, Trinity also facilitates the following student groups:
Faith Alive: Faith Alive is a group of students at Trinity who want to stimulate conversation and thinking about our relationship with God and how that should impact our relationships with others. We strive to raise awareness of local and global needs for justice and mercy through thoughtful examination of Scripture and society, and by taking informed and self-denying action to address these needs through local engagement. Our group is committed to biblical transformation of self and society.
Fellowship of International Students (FIS): The Fellowship of International Students exists to advocate for and attend to the needs of the F-1 and J-1 student community and their families. The FIS also strives to be a bridge builder by facilitating enriching, diverse, and international experiences and fellowship within the TEDS/TGS community. The FIS is composed of fellowship groups such as the African Students Fellowship, Chinese Students Fellowship, European Students Fellowship, Japanese Students Fellowship, and Korean Students Fellowship.
Gospel in the Public Square (GPS): The Gospel in the Public Square seeks to bridge the gap between the Trinity Community, the classroom, and the culture at large. Through multiple events held on campus throughout the year, GPS invites Trinity faculty and other experts to address cultural issues in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our hope is to equip future church leaders to boldly wrestle with difficult cultural issues in a loving and biblical manner.
The Graduate Scrawl: The Graduate Scrawl is a regular online newspaper featuring interviews with faculty and students, reviews, poetry, and stories about happenings around Trinity. This group welcomes submissions from members of the Trinity graduate community.
International Missions Fellowship (IMF): IMF exists to inform the TEDS/TGS community about the nature, extent, and opportunities of home and foreign missionary service. It’s open to all Trinity students who are passionate about world evangelism. IMF seeks to stimulate awareness and involvement in the cross- cultural communication of the gospel in fulfillment of the Great Commission becoming a reality for every believer.
Trinity Artists Guild (TAG): The Trinity Artists Guild facilitates the involvement of students, staff, and faculty of TEDS and TGS in the arts. The events are focused on encouraging artistic involvement within the graduate schools. Groups will cover a variety of arts such as creative writing, visual arts, music, dance, video, drama, etc.
Trinity Military Ministry (TMM): The Trinity Military Ministry is a group of students, faculty, and staff who feel called to minister to military personnel who are currently serving or have served, as well as their families. We’re open to anyone who desires to understand the needs specific to military life.
Trinity Society of Women (TSW): The purpose of this organization is to inspire women to exemplify integrity in life and doctrine in the pursuit of God-glorifying excellence at TEDS and TGS. We develop, organize and support activities for female students at Trinity. We also help women acclimate to campus and help prepare them for ministry wherever God has called them to serve. Our activities include mentoring programs, informal lunches, prayer meetings, guest speakers, and other events.
Youth Ministry Connection (YMC): Youth Ministry Connection exists to connect TEDS/TGS students involved in youth ministry while also providing youth ministry resources. We open up opportunities outside of class for students to meet and discuss the challenges and joys of serving young people. We also seek to share information about local events and relevant resources.

Trinity Wives Fellowship (TWF) exists to enrich relationships with God, family, and other women, to offer support through the unique experience of seminary life, and to provide opportunities for growth and service. For more information about TWF, click the button below.
