both mind and spirit, to develop servant leaders to engage the culture for Christ.”

         through history and looks at the literature, politics, architecture, art, philosophy, etc of the time. It
         does a great job of connection. It also has a Biblical world view, along with 2 required Bible
         classes for freshman and one for Seniors. It offers good programs in premed and nursing. I
         understand its media program is good. I love the professor of Drama. … Overall, it was a

“The mission of Trinity Christian College is to provide Biblically informed liberal arts education in the
Reformed tradition. Our heritage is the historic Christian faith as it was reshaped in the Reformation, and
our fundamental basis of governance and instruction is the infallible Word of God as interpreted by the
Reformed standards. The Reformed world view affirms the Biblical truths that creation is the work of God,
that our world has fallen into sin, and that redemption is possible only through the gracious work of
Christ. From these beliefs arise the convictions that those who teach and learn are called to be
coworkers with Christ in subjecting all cultural activities to the reign of God, and that genuine education
must involve the whole person as a thinking, feeling, and believing creature.“

        Ms. Van Dommelen – “This small Christian liberal arts college has about 1,200 students. The
        biggest programs here are education, business, and nursing. There is a great community of
