Giving Everyone the Opportunity to Learn
Today we are facing a major crisis in global higher education: ACCESS. In the U.S. and other parts of the world, access is limited by cost. Elsewhere, it is limited by capacity—talent, teaching materials, equipment, and space. In sheer economic terms, the cost of a college education is unsustainable for individuals, families, and society as a whole. However, the higher education crisis is much more than just an economic catastrophe. On a broader scale, it is an enormous social justice crisis that bars millions of bright young people from reaching their full potential. The greatest costs, however, cannot be measured in mere economic terms. It’s the cost of losing the hearts and minds of the next generation.
Trinity Education’s vision is to facilitate a global movement that enables local churches worldwide to equip their young people as servant-leaders who are marked by integrity and excellence in all areas of life. Trinity Education seeks to do this by equipping local churches to provide high-quality, biblically-based, community-oriented higher education programs to young people in their communities. At the heart of this vision is a desire to see the Church strengthened to disciple her young people so that they in turn can disciple their nations and communities, bring light and healing into areas of darkness and brokenness in the world, and ultimately, see the glory of God revealed in greater and greater measure among the nations of the earth.
Trinity Education began as a formal initiative in early 2012 with a think-tank consultation in Miami, FL comprised of like-minded visionaries from around the world. Over the past years, we have been working to lay a solid research and development foundation in order to take Trinity Education forward as a global movement. In 2014, Trinity Education launched the first pilot program in a slum community of Nairobi, Kenya. As we learn, refine, and iterate based on our experience with Trinity Education’s initial field testing, we hope to scale up and expand the Trinity Education model to additional churches, communities, and countries.
