WHY STUDY CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES?
Throughout the program you will learn what it means to worship God in faithfulness and how to build bridges in love across cultural boundaries. Students who study together have several common interests: a passion for the Lord, a love for people, and a desire to see this world transformed for the glory of God. All students in the program seek to enhance their understanding and skills in ministry, whether they are entering or already participating in Christian service. Does this describe you? If so, Trinity Florida will prepare you both theologically and practically in the areas of personal maturity, relational competence, and ministry skills to engage contemporary culture through Christ for His kingdom.
Trinity Florida is part of Trinity International University. Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS), listed among the top 10 divinity schools in the United States, is also part of Trinity International University. Biblical Studies majors often choose to pursue graduate studies (like the Master of Divinity) at TEDS after completing their degree.
