Trinity’s International Minstry

International Outreach at Trinity exists to provide internationals the opportunity to discover hope in Christ, stimulate the growth and development of their faith, and send them out as leaders equipped to reach their own people. The group is composed of many nations and languages inclusive of students, scholars, singles, families, and American friends who get together to encourage one another.

Above all else, International Outreach at Trinity desires that Jesus Christ be made known among the nations through the equipping of internationals in a mutual community. An international who undergoes a transformation from church attendee to leader leaves Trinity ready to minister and be involved in church leadership. A person like that is a dream realized.
