About Trinity College of Florida
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, Elementary 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.
