EduCativ Posted July 28, 2020 Share Posted July 28, 2020 Trinity Bible College and Graduate School were founded in 1948 as Lakewood Park Bible School. It is located on a beautiful 28-acre campus on the east side of Ellendale, North Dakota. The centerpiece of the campus is the Block Memorial Chapel. Other buildings on campus include the Lowell Lundstrom Heartland Student Life Center, the Ray Ulmer Field House, Liechty Hall, Davidson Hall, Daniel Schneck Kesler Hall, the Fern, and John Liechty Fitness Center, and the most recent addition is the Prayer & Teaching Center featuring two classrooms, a conference room, a spacious atrium with a waterfall, a prayer chapel, a kitchen, and connecting corridors. The Bob Tatum Football Field and a large practice field make up the rest of the campus grounds. Trinity is affiliated with the General Council of the Assemblies of God. The governing body of the college is the Board of Trustees. Board membership consists of Assembly of God district superintendents, individuals from the fields of church ministries, professions, education, and members-at-large. Trinity Bible College (TBC) is a fully accredited institution in good standing with the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE).

Over the coming years, Trinity Bible College and Graduate School will continue to develop its role as a leading Pentecostal Bible college in the USA and beyond. We will champion the cause of raising and training well-equipped leaders and prepare our students to be active, skilled individuals fitted for service in today’s world. We will emphasize lifelong learning, spiritual vitality, and life skills, ensuring that our graduates make a Christ-centered contribution to the communities in which they live and work. We will always take seriously the diverse world in which we live. From the view that accepts the Christian Gospel as the fundamental under-girding for life, we will ensure that our students are trained and encouraged to serve Jesus Christ authentically while handling complexity and diversity effectively. We will seek to pioneer the development of innovative training, scholarly understanding and critical awareness in order to prepare people to plant churches, enter the cross-cultural ministry or the workplace in such a way as to build churches and communities that genuinely show the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. We will adapt to changes in our society and culture by ensuring the development of talented, highly-skilled, and motivated staff, effective governance, management, and leadership. We will achieve this by providing well-resourced facilities and a commitment to network in an unthreatened way with churches and institutions that share our vision for a better world through the sending and placing of well trained Christian leaders. You may find a description of our beliefs in the Assemblies of God Statement of Fundamental Truths. Trinity Bible College and Graduate School (TBC & G.S.) are accredited by The Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) in Good Standing, which is an institutional accrediting body recognized by Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and is listed in the Directory of Higher Education, published by the U.S. Department of Higher Education (D.E.). All of our academic programs share the central purpose of preparing Spirit-filled men and women for Christian service. Whether in the context of vocational ministry, education, business, music, counseling, or other areas of study, your personal, professional, and spiritual development are essential. Every B.A. and A.A. program at Trinity includes a core curriculum of classes in Bible and Theology. Most B.A. programs of study include the Major in Biblical Studies, particularly those with a vocational ministry focus. Due to the educational requirements of the Teacher Education and Business Administration programs, most students will choose the Biblical Studies Minor; however, some may choose the Biblical Studies Major to have a broader Bible basis. These programs of study are designed to integrate faith and learning. As you explore the variety of undergraduate degree programs offered at Trinity Bible College & Graduate School, you will discover that each Bachelor of Arts degree program has a Biblical Studies Major or Minor coupled with another Major or a Minor. That is because we believe that the study of Scripture becomes the foundation for Christian experience and life. Trinity Bible College & Graduate School offers an M.A. (Missional Leadership), an M.A. (Global Theology), and an M.A. (Rural Ministries). Let me tell you why I am so enthusiastic about these degrees. We have a highly experienced and qualified faculty. We believe that contemporary cutting edge education should be presented by people who believe what they teach and live it. The MA (Missional Leadership) is an innovative and inclusive degree that equips people in any leadership sphere, particularly Christian leadership. After serving for seven years in the U.K. and Europe and being exposed to rampant secularism and the postmodern milieu, we have sought to develop a program that will help leaders in these challenging but exciting times. Trinity Distance Education (D.E.) provides education and training to students across our nation. Whether you are just starting your college studies or are returning to finish your degree, our D.E. faculty has designed TBC online studies to help you learn the information and skills needed for your future, either as a vocational minister or as a Christian leader in another profession.
