A groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday, July 8, marked the start of construction of an $8.7 million Art and Communication Center at Trinity Christian College.

"This building expresses Trinity's commitment to a Reformed Christian worldview that sees the aesthetic as a God-created dimension of life; one to be celebrated, explored, and claimed for Christ," said Annalee Ward, chairperson of the communication arts department. 

Chaplain Tim Hoekstra gave the blessing on the project, assuring hundreds of onlookers that "wherever you place your foot for God's Kingdom, that place will God give to you." 

The center's art department will feature a 200-seat black box theatre, a gallery and space for teaching photography, painting, graphic design, and print-making. The center will also house a scene shop, costume shop, green room, makeup studio, and light/sound booth. Communication students will be able to use a state-of-the-art computer lab, editing suites, Web broadcasting studios, and a broadcast booth. 

The College has received $6.75 million in donations for the center and hopes to raise the remaining $1.9 million during construction.
