A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Greetings!
As I seek to connect with Trinity alumni and as you work to follow God's will for your life, I think it is imperative we remember that God has not called us to be successful, he has called us to be faithful. We can also trust that he will equip us for whatever it is we are called to do. Consider these words from Paul in the coming weeks:

"Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless. But I will rejoice even if I lose my life, pouring it out like a liquid offering to God, just like your faithful service is an offering to God. And I want all of you to share that joy." Phillipians 2:16-17 NLT
