Faithful Service


“Well done, good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:23, ESV)  

These are words we all long to hear at the end of a challenging project, a faithful life, or a career of service. We have the honor of expressing this appreciation and gratitude to eight Trinity College and Graduate School faculty members who will be retiring at the end of this academic year, after many faithful years of service to the Lord at TIU.

These distinguished faculty have set a high standard of professional strength in their academic disciplines, a passion for investing in the lives of students from all walks of life, and an unwavering commitment to the Lord. Trinity International University has been honored by their service, and we are sure that they will continue to use their many gifts and skills to serve the kingdom of God for years to come. 

There will be opportunities to honor them later this semester.  We have also provided a place for you to share words of appreciation and encouragement by clicking each of their names below.  If you have been impacted by any of these faithful servants, please share your thoughts with them online.
