Our Spiritual and Educational Culture
Trinity College of Florida was founded in 1932 by W.T. Watson, who had a vision for training men and women for ministry by equipping them with a thorough knowledge of the English Bible. Throughout our 85 year history that commitment to Bible teaching has been woven into every degree program Trinity offers. God has blessed Trinity with a diverse student body and a common desire to serve Christ in whatever ministerial or professional setting He provides.
The Business Organizational Leadership Department, along with our Counseling Psychology and Ministry Training Programs, serves both our Traditional and our Degree Completion Programs.

Though Dr. Billy Graham is the college's most famous graduate, he is but one of many in the past years who have gone on from the college to serve the Lord all over the world and in many different roles. Originally focused on training pastors and missionaries, the college has expanded its course offerings over the years to include Worship Ministry, Youth Ministry, Advanced Theological Studies, Ele...mentary Education, Psychology, General Studies, and Business Organizational Leadership. In 1999 the college also added an evening degree completion program, called Trinity Quest. This program offers the Ministry, Psychology, and Business Organizational Leadership degrees enabling those with families and careers to benefit from a Trinity education. More recently these degree programs have added the online format for convenience to busy students.
