As one of five schools at Trinity International University, Trinity Florida’s education has the same spiritual DNA as the rest of the University. We are committed to worshipping in faithfulness, mentoring in hope, and building bridges in love.
We believe that faithful worship means honoring God in our studies. We worship God through prayer and song but also seek to know God and his work in the world, seeing God’s hand through the lens of all the academic disciplines. At Trinity Florida we also know that worship includes service to others in Christian love and, for that reason, all programs are tied to the practice of Christian life in community (Hebrews 13:15-16). True worship has hands and feet.
We believe in mentoring that inspires hope in each person’s potential. Mentoring is part of spiritual life at Trinity as professors demonstrate care for the well-being and growth of every student. At Trinity Florida, students are known by name, not simply number. Each faculty member is committed to the flourishing of each student in their studies, vocation, and life. Mentoring helps make us whole.
We believe in bridge building in love. The heart of the gospel of Christ is reconciliation between God and humans and between men and women of different cultures. Trinity Florida is a diverse community where bridge building is sewn into the classroom experience. The best education occurs in community and fosters loving community. Real-life reconciliation and building understanding are central to the spiritual life at Trinity Florida (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). Love prevails over division.
Classes at Trinity Florida are conducted in the context of prayerful dependence upon God, with the understanding that true spirituality is not only a Sunday morning activity but informs all of our life together before God, including our studies and service. Join us in these acts of worship.
CULTURE AND DIVERSITY
Trinity International University Florida is dedicated to the biblical picture of humanity created in the image of God. Just as the Triune God is fundamentally relational—three persons, one God, in eternal relationship, so also humanity is created relationally—male and female, different ethnicities, yet one humanity, who are in relationship together as those created in the image God. Just as the Triune God reveals diversity in eternal unity, so also humanity images diversity in unity.
True to this commitment, in 2020, U.S. News & World Report ranked Trinity as a top-tier school in the nation for ethnic diversity and social mobility. Trinity Florida reflects the diversity of the South Florida communities. Students and faculty from all ethnic backgrounds have a place at the common academic table. We celebrate cultural differences and through them enrich one another. Women and men sit together to discuss the Bible, theology, education, business, ministry, psychology, and leadership. As a Christian institution of higher education, Trinity Florida is committed to respond to the exhortation of the apostle Paul: “Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Romans 15:7).
MEET OUR STUDENTS
“I’ve enjoyed receiving a Christ-centered education at Trinity Florida, where I’ve been challenged and where the Holy Spirit met me as I have studied, written papers, and engaged with other students.”

“I spent two years at another college, and it was completely different. The professors at Trinity Florida are very friendly, and they really want to help you. We learned all the theories, but they also put God in the studies. It’s just a different way of looking at what we’re studying.”

“I’m passionate about faith and Trinity Florida has been amazing. The professors are not just professors. They are people who work in their fields. They have become friends, mentors, and now colleagues and peers.”
