Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) and its activities are an important part of the educational and social program of the College and can provide valuable leadership experience. All students are encouraged to participate in this balanced program of activities. The SGA is an elected body that coordinates various cultural, social, and intramural athletic programs for the College student body. The SGA also serves as a way students can communicate needs and concerns to the College Administration.

Education in Action

Education in Action (EIA) provides students with valuable teaching experience and resources to help prepare them to teach in their directed areas of study. Students are able to apply their skills to real educational experiences as well as have the opportunity to impact the youth they work with. EIA also organizes educational activities, student volunteering, and discussion forums designed to further student learning and growth.

Great Commission Missionary Fellowship

Understanding that both prayer and awareness are essential elements for all missionary ventures, the Great Commission Missionary Fellowship (GCMF) organizes various student activities involving world missions. An annual missions conference brings church leaders, missionaries, mission organizations, and others to the campus for a special time of concentrated recognition of missions as the worldwide outflow of the church. Trinity College works with other Bible colleges and Christian institutions in sponsoring missions conferences and cooperative projects.

Speaking Truth Student Group

The Speaking Truth Student group was formed to promote the Great Commission and to build up and edify the students preparing for ministry. Students who have a passion for preaching Gods Word to the next generation are encouraged to join Speaking Truth Student Group. This ministry gives our students the opportunity to travel to schools and churches sharing God’s Word and engaging teens who have that same passion. Students involved in STSG receive many ministry and leadership opportunities such as preaching, teaching, event planning, and personal ministry to youth.

Answers to Questions about Student Life

Are there student standards and guidelines to follow?

Our goal is not to have a lot of rules, but to protect the scriptural standards that have become synonymous with Trinity College of Florida. Our Student Life Handbook serves as the source for information regarding the college’s standards and guidelines. These guidelines are designed to regulate the activities of the student body so that the basic rights of all are protected. Like everything else we do, we wrote our handbook based on biblical principles for fostering a Christian community. It is our hope that each student will have a value system based on Scriptural concepts. View the Student Life Handbook.

Are students required to participate in the Christian Service program?

A minimum of 20 hours of service a semester is required for all full-time students. Each ministry selection must be approved by the Dean of Students and should begin by the fourth Friday of the semester.
Some of our current students are involved in their local church serving in children’s ministry, singing on the worship team, or assisting youth leaders. Others teach a Bible Study or Sunday School class. There is also participation in local ministries such as Inter-Varsity, Young Life, or Child Evangelism Fellowship.

Are there chapel services for undergraduate students?

Yes! Chapel is a vital part of building our spiritual community. Students, faculty, and staff are able to come together for prayer, worship, and teaching. Contemporary worship, testimony and sharing, and solid teaching from the Word of God provide multiple opportunities for student involvement and are a reflection of who we are as a community. Chapel services are held twice throughout each week in Sid Williams Chapel.

Students will also encounter the Word of God daily in classes and in the dorms. Spiritual emphasis weekends, dorm devotions, mission trips, and Christian service are other initiatives we take to ensure spiritual growth and maturity.

You’ll receive more than an outstanding education at TCF. You’ll gain an experience that will encourage you to have a closer relationship with Jesus.
