Multiple distinct backgrounds. Multiple crucial callings. One common goal: to take their leadership roles to a higher level as a result of their training at Trinity. We are TIU!

Jessica Waddell was so uncertain of her future and where God was calling her to go after her Associates degree. However, not only did God guide her to TIU Florida to complete her Bachelors in Christian Ministries but has also led her to continue her education here at Trinity. With her desires to lead in a multi-cultural aspect, Jessica feels the Master’s in Leadership will allow her to bring the gospel to all nations. “Studying at Trinity not only helped me make connections with different people, churches, and ministries, but it provided me with an education that is second to none. I am expectant and eager to start my new journey at Trinity in the Master’s program. Go Trojans!!” Read more about her journey.
